Eating on an airplane tray table is the same as eating off of a toilet or bathroom sink according to experts studying germs on planes.
Here's more info to make you think twice about flying:
Tests of the bins you must put your stuff in before going through security showed high amounts of dangerous bacteria and one bin yielded evidence of fecal matter at levels high enough to make people sick.
But it is the tray tables on the plane which have the highest amount of bacteria.
I heard a local news report on this today and the reporter asked the doctor about using the tray tables and he said, "you do, I don't."
I will say, though, that Dale flys a lot and he is almost never sick.
