A friend and colleague, Anne Loving from PCCC's Science Department, did a study on germs and other icky things. She's a microbiologist, so this is one of the areas she is knowledgeable about. The interesting twist? It's something that applies to many of us who eat at restaurants - are there germs and bacteria in the lemons they put in soft drinks?
The study has gotten her (and PCCC) some recognition - she's been interviewed by a number of radio stations via telephone, and a 90 second video clip was posted on healthinspections.com - it is worth checking out, and it certainly has me thinking differently about asking for lemons at a diner!
