Watch this funny video to learn about where you should be coughing. Just say no to using your hands.

I have to say that I've started coughing and sneezing into my sleeve in the recent years and discovered that the only side effect is that every once and a while I get a little glob of snot on my sleeve. GROSS! But hey, who really washes their hands every time they cough, sneeze, or touch their face? So sacrifice a little snotty fabric and cough and sneeze into your sleeve.

I've been coughing and sneezing into my sleeve since the early 1980s, having picked up the technique from Dr. Annie Cavanero on an episode of St. Elsewhere. Now, after 25 years, I can finally cite a more scientific source for my information than a dramatized TV show.
