Q: The Whole Foods where I shop provides wipes next to the shopping carts to clean off any bacteria. Is this a good idea?
A: Wiping down any surface that comes into contact with many sets of hands is a good idea. Iím particularly fond of this self-service approach. People should take their health and well-being into their own hands!
