9:06 am
"today's" healthy home is brought to you by clorox. help stop germs with clorox disinfecting products. >> there's lots of talk about germs and bacteria, but is all the talk true? dr. raj, good morning. germs we try to avoid them, because we don't want to catch anything out there. but let's talk about the myths. there are a lot of myths right? >> it's important to separate fact from fiction when it comes to germs. the first fact, put something on the toilet seat, if you sit on it, you could catch something. >> nobody likings to see a dirty public seat, but the truth is you're really not going to catch any stds.
9:07 am
what it's touching is the skin of your thighs, nothing really internal. urine is actually sterile, so it doesn't have any bacteria. chances are you're going to have more likely catching something from the toilet paper, because when you flush, it actually sprays germs all over the toilet paper. in general, you just want to wash your hands very carefully after you use a public toilet. >> what about toothbrushes, a lot of people, there that's myth if you leave a toothbrush exposed. >> people worry about toothbrushes exposed and catching things in the air. it's really not a big deal. >> wearing foot socks in a public shower will help protect your feet from germs. >> the shower is probably the worst part of it because
9:08 am
stagnant water really attracts germs, mold, fun gug, everything. yes they protect the bottom of your feet, but if you're stepping into a pool of water or a puddle, which you often see in a public shower, it's not going to protect you at all. avoid the shower, don't step in any puddles and actually the walls to the shower don't have any germs. i think the safest bet is to wait until you get home. >> next myth is commonly known as the five-second rule. and those of us who are moms and dads, we live by the five-second rule, if it hit the ground and it didn't stay down there long enough to get any germs. >> if it hits the ground for one second, it can have germs. you've been walking on the sidewalk, then you walked into your home. anything from germs, bacteria,
9:09 am
fungus, one second is enough for it to latch on to that food. wash it very carefully or just throw it out. >> all right, sorry. many air travel -- and a lot of people think about air travel, and they think that the stagnant air in the plane, as it recycles, it's got to be just a haven for whatever is going around, is that true? >> the air on airplanes is recycl recycled, but it's recycled through a filter. it's actually better than the air rebreathe in most office buildings. however you are in close quarters with someone who may be sick. you want to be careful of all the surfaces, the tray table, the armrest. the seat belt. take some cleaning cloths and just wipe down everything when you get there. another comment is that you can keep your kitchen counters germ free by scrubbing them with
9:10 am
soap right afterwards. >> people use a lot of sponges, and sponges are not great, because they actually hold on to things like raw meat juices and crumbs. you want to use an anti-bacterial wipe, just using a sponge is not enough. sponges can spread more germs. if you do want to use a sponge, soak it in bleach water for a few hours. >> can you really catch something on the makeup counter? >> you actually can. you have to be most careful about eye makeup and lipstick, these are touching our mucous membranes, the moist part of our bodies can bring in germs. you can get conjunctivitis. try it with --

9:38 am
dealing with, no matter how severe it may be, maybe it's time to sit the kids down and say this is what the holidays are all about. it's not about eating and giving gifts. so that's one. the second thing is, use the environment around you, people forget the power of things like movement and music. research and science shows now people change the way they feel by eating, they do it by drugs. physical movement changes, for example depression has a tempo. when somebody's depressed, they talk real differently, their shoulders drop, their body drops. so simple things like i'm going to work out three times a week, i'm going to run, i'm going to lift, i'm going to do something i would never would have done. music moves us, people earlier when they watched jackie, people kind of picked up.

said i got to do this for two families and then it's four, and then it's eight. 33 years later, now we feed 2 million people. if you're in the toughest time of your life, the last thing you want to do is help somebody else that's worse off. there's nothing that will remind you that i've got it better than i think, and i'm made for giving, not just getting or receiving or making things happen. if you go to, you can do this with no money. you can bring your kids and do it. i brought my kids who are 5 and 6 years old. and to this day, he's hooked on contribution. it's part of his life. >> when you're, you know, struggling because you haven't had a job in months. >> yes. >> when you can't pay your mortgage and you're facing foreclosure and you're under so much stress from that, is saying

9:46 am
traveling across the country when it comes to food? >> one thing is always go out your comfort zone, travel in and of itself takes you out of your comfort zone. but it's very easy to fall into the same pattern. go to the ethnic neighborhoods, the china towns, the little italys, the places you don't go when you're home. >> because you're traveling. >> right. even just talking to locals you wouldn't ordinarily talk to. >> you say use social media, you got it, you're on facebook, you're twittering, why not use those? >> especially if there's a city where there's a tremendous university population, or a forward thinking very tech savvy population, you know there's people going to be talking about their favorite bars and restaurants. >> you say talk to the local, but pick the right local. >> if you go to a place, they have told -- sometimes, there's
9:47 am
a little bit of a reciprocal relationship that a -- some palms are getting greased. >> i know a guy who knows a guy who gets you a pizza, exactly. talk to the people that are the salt of the earth and the real life blood of the city. talk to the municipal parking lot attendants, talk to the bellhops. >> talk to one of the maids or the porters. >> those are people like in maryland, a crab cake is not a regional dish, it's a taste of home. >> and farmers markets? >> first of all, it's going to be local produce, local livestock, and more often than not tchefs are going to be ther. >> they do train the mice to probe things out. now you also talked about going outside of your comfort zone,
9:48 am
but, you know, is it important to have a strong sense of adventure? >> absolutely. absolutely. i think taking that walk on the wild side, obviously you make smart and savvy choices when you're in a new city, a new environment. but you have to pretend that you are an explorer, i do think there is an element of being like a culinary conquistador that you have to embrace. because if you keep eating on the same variations of what you usually eat, you're not seeing the horizons. >> and the fact is, you can actually travel in your own hometown by going outside of your comfort zone. it could be right under your own nose? >> i'm a brooklyn boy born and bread. whether it's going to the red hook ball field and seeing the amazing variety of foods there, going to sunset park and having a phenomenal chinese experience,

9:52 am
restaurant writer as a young man now i'm going full circle. >> you're going to make some fall favorites? >> we're making fall favorites and i think one thing people are afraid of is home made pie crusts. we're making graham cracker crust, what everyone loves and could not be easier. you take the melted butter, you pour it in there, you can buy a box of graham crackers that are already crumbed or you can put it in a blender. you're going to take that, pour it into a pie plate. you have to pack it down, with the measuring cup. you're going to throw that in the oven, bake it in the oven for about ten minutes at 350. you're getting your cinnamon,
9:53 am
