19. I traveled on airplanes frequently because of my job

and never once got sick. I don't know if that was just luck or what, but I've never used antiseptic wipes on much of anything. Some researchers have found that they don't really kill many germs but just spread them around, and that they might even contribute to the evolution of antiseptic-resistant "superbugs." https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/scientists-discover-that-antimicrobial-wipes-and-soaps-may-be-making-you-and-society-sick/ So I don't bother with them.
