The research at the University claimed that desks contain nearly 400 times as many microbes than a toilet seat. With the cold and flu season around the corner it's something to take seriously,” says Dr. Ingram, author of "Natural Cures for Killer Germs."

Dr. Ingram explains, even though your company may have a cleaning service, your desk may not get cleaned. Some personal surfaces, such as a keyboard, telephone or mouse, should be cleaned by you each day.

Dr. Ingram points out that when someone is infected with the cold or flu bug, the surfaces they touch during the day become a germ transfer point, because some colds and flu viruses can survive on the surface for up to 72 hours. The super transfer point for bacteria is the hands and the surfaces we touch.

The office equipment you use should be disinfected regularly to prevent the spread of viruses, particularly if someone else uses your equipment.

Bacteria lotions and hand soaps kill bacteria but not viruses. Dr. Ingram recommends using spice oils high in phenols to disinfect your office space. He pointed out that research demonstrated that oregano oil killed viruses in bacteria in a matter of minutes. Other spice oils with potential germ-killing power include cinnamon, cumin and sage.

If everyone would sanitize their desk and wash their hands regularly, it would help prevent the spread of germs explains Dr. Ingram.
