Cleanliness next to ....

A recent telephone survey made in US has found that US men and women follow good cleanliness habits,

“Three out of every four men wash their hands after a trip to a public restroom, but the rest seem to be incorrigible, microbiologists reported today. Fewer women fall into that category.
Overall, 82% of more than 6,300 men and women observed leaving restrooms washed their hands in 2005 compared with 78% in 2003, said the American Society of Microbiology and the Soap and Detergent Association.
But women accounted for nearly all of that improvement, the groups said, from 83% to 90%.
Men, however, remained the great unwashed, with a negligible soap-and-water improvement to 75% in 2005 from 74% in 2003. “

Consider the above record with what would have been the case with Asian’s, I really think it would be not that much high as compared to Americans. Most of the Americans get exposed to good habits right from the very young age, as they have good public service system, also it’s to be noted that America is a developed nation and Asia is still under development. Considering the fact that the education rate is getting increased at a good pace these basic qualities will get imbibed with Asians in the coming years for sure.
