If everyone would barricade (cover) their coughs and sneezes properly, there would be less illness.
How do you cover a sneeze?
1) Don't cover your sneeze. BAD. Germs can shoot out up to 10 ft.
2) Sneeze into your hands. NOT AS BAD. After sneezing into your hands you will then contaminate everything you touch until you thoroughly wash your hands.
3) Sneeze into your sleeve. BETTER, but it doesn't cover your sneeze very well.
4) Sneeze into a tissue. BEST. It will cover your sneeze pretty well and you can then simply dispose of the tissue.

Did you know that plucking or trimming NOSE HAIR can be dangerous.
"There’s an area on your face that the medical community has ominously named “the triangle of death.” The top point of the triangle is the bridge of your nose with the bottom of the triangle being above your upper lip. This area of your face is obviously close to your brain which makes getting infections in the triangle more dangerous than getting a cut on your knee.
Not only is tweezing nose hairs incredible painful, it can leave the skin open from where you yanked the hair out. The hair in our nose is the first line of defense for filtering out the bad things we breathe in, so there’s plenty of germs trapped in there. The germs can then enter the body from the wound and cause an infection – staph, meningitis, etc. These scary bacteria can then infect the brain, leading to serious medical outcomes like paralysis or even death."
The bottom line is DON'T PLUCK IN THE TRIANGLE. And don't pop pimples or pick your nose as either could leave your skin open to infection in vessels the feed the brain. Not a good situation.
