When you fly, you may have have some dangerous and unwanted passengers on board. A recent study looked for potentially deadly bacteria on planes, including E. Coli and MRSA.

Researchers found MRSA on jet seatback pockets. They say it can survive there for up to a week. MRSA is resistant to most anti-biotics.

They also found E. Coli on plane armrests, tray tables and toilet handles.

We recommend that you buy some hand sanitizer before you board your next flight.
