A 10 Second Kiss Can Transfer 80 Million Bacteria!!!
Is it worth it?
Between New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day, Americans find themselves in the middle of the most dreadful part of winter, but also find themselves in the height of kissing season. And while the idea of kissing season may sound cozy, it can be a huge stumbling block to your health according to pharmacist, Georgea Pasedis, who says we need to revisit a more conservative social etiquette for your health’s sake when it comes to swapping fluids so freely, especially during the winter months.

Some of the infections that can be spread easily through kissing include herpes, mononucleosis, the common cold and flu, gingivitis and cavities and more severe conditions including syphilis.
