Daily Mail..... Biggest Fail Forever ??

Only 12% of people eat before washing their hands

I don't understand it either !!
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2713388/Only-12-people-eat-washing-hands-despite-germier-p...
And is there any point in actually reading the article, if they can't get the basic facts correct in their Headline

It is more "succint" ..... I am surprised you did not see through it......
by saying it that way,.... they have grabbed your attention....unfortunately, you "fell" for it....  Grin Grin
  What they are probably saying is......
"88% of people, do, actually, wash their hands before eating."    Roll eyes

Finally corrected at 10:30pm,  only 5 hours after publishing !!
Only 12% of people wash their hands before eating - despite them being more unhygienic than a park bench or escalator rail

Note they didn't change the link url name !!
They usually reprint such corrected mistakes in a different location.
"Germier" has been removed, used more than once
Love all the listed comments.
"Award Winning" !!!

I'm sure PCUK has been doing a fair few threads over time about the DM errors. I find them quite amusing.
