If washing hands is important to prevent colds and flu, why do we follow the handshaking tradition?


In other cultures, people do not greet by shaking hands, why do Americans? This is a sure way to spread germs yet it is still practiced. I know many people use the toilet and do not wash their hands. Ugh!
