Avatar has created a cinematic tidal wave in terms of cinema attendance, in particular. But how many microbes have been shared by users of 3D glasses in dark rooms? This is the subject of a study by an American consumer newspaper, which tested the cleanliness of the glasses of seven cinemas in the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The results are alarming: no glasses were sterile.
Risk of Staphylococcus aureus
Of course, we use objects that are not completely clean on a daily basis: pens at the office, public transport seats, payment terminals in parking lots, etc. But many viewers imagine the glasses of straight cinemas out of their packaging. Here is an extract of the diseases caused by the germs found on the tested samples: conjunctivitis, skin infections, food poisoning, sepsis or pneumonia. The magazine even found something to catch a golden staph.
“We expected to find common bacteria – nothing is sterile, but staph is not to be taken lightly,” said Carolyn Forte, director of household and cleaning products at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, ABC News. “We are not saying that by putting on these glasses you will get sick, but with children touching the glasses, their eyes and their mouths, the risk is present. “
