Fist bump vs Handshake? "Fist bumping” transmits significantly fewer bacteria than either
handshaking or high‐fiving, while still addressing the cultural expectation of hand‐to‐hand contact according to a study.
In this experiment, a greeter immersed a
sterile‐gloved hand into a container of germs. Once the glove was dry, the greeter exchanged a handshake, fist bump, or high‐five with a sterile‐gloved recipient. Exchanges randomly varied in duration
and intensity of contact.
After the exchange, the receiving gloves were immersed in a solution to count the number of bacteria
transferred during contact. Nearly twice as many bacteria were transferred during a handshake
compared to the high‐five, and significantly fewer bacteria were transferred during a fist bump than a
high‐five. In all three forms of greeting, a longer duration of contact and stronger grips were further
associated with increased bacterial transmission.
“Adoption of the fist bump as a greeting could substantially reduce the transmission of infectious
diseases between individuals,” said corresponding author, David Whitworth, PhD.
