Is There Scary Bacteria In Your Showerhead Making You Sick?

Prevention

If you spot some mold growing on your shower curtain or door, you're surely grossed out enough to do something about it—and fast. But if you're like most people, you rarely stop to wonder about the bacteria in your shower that you can’t see.

Plenty of products—like Shower Clear and EndoSan, among others—claim to protect you from the potentially dangerous gunk growing inside that otherwise nondescript fixture. But are they necessary? Should you really worry that your shower will make you sick?

The short answer: probably not.

"Showerheads are great places for microbial life to persist in the home," admits Matthew Gebert, research technician in the Fierer Laboratory at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where he's part of the Showerhead Microbiome Project, a study of what's living inside showerheads across the country. After all, showerheads are damp and warm, and whatever lives inside them gets replenished with nutrients each time you shower. (Here are 6 mistakes you're making every time you shower.)

"Bacteria are great at sticking together—literally—and creating little communities inside your showerhead," Gebert says.

They may not sound like neighbors you want, and there is chance that some of them could make you sick. Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) is a bacteria that occurs naturally in water and soil but has also found its way into plenty of showerheads. While many of NTM’s 150+ species are completely harmless, others can cause severe lung infections, particularly in people who have a weakened immune system. (Pick up healthier habits and get smart advice delivered straight to your inbox—sign up for Prevention's free newsletter.)

Another bacteria in your showerhead could be Legionella pneumophila, which is responsible for Legionnaire's disease, a type of pneumonia. It can be sprayed out in tiny amounts that make their way into your respiratory system.

Prevention Premium: The Weird Way Skipping Your Next Dental Cleaning Will Increase Your Risk Of Pneumonia

Still, these are worst-case scenarios. Most of the time, bacteria in your showerhead is well, just harmless bacteria. Aaron E. Glatt, MD, chairman of the department of medicine at South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside, New York, an infectious disease specialist and spokesperson for the Infectious Diseases Society of America, doesn’t see any reason to worry. "Bacteria by definition," he says, "doesn't mean dangerous."

"Many [bacteria] are actually beneficial and serve to help boost a healthy immune system," adds Gebert. "People are exposed to bacteria every day—in dust, in the air, in food, through contact with other people, contact with their pets, their workspace—and very little of it actually makes you sick." Just because there are bacteria living in your showerhead "does not mean you are at an elevated risk for lung or skin infections," says Gebert. "Nor does it mean you need to throw away your showerhead today."

Still, it can't hurt to follow a few common sense rules:

gettyimages-89248029-shower-www-boelke-art-de-1000.jpg

shower
www.boelke-art.de/Getty images

Switch to a metal showerhead.
Studies show that bacteria are more likely to accumulate in plastic fixtures

Clean regularly.
Nothing complicated here: Just keep your showerhead (as well as your tub and shower curtain) visibly clean, recommends Glatt. Home guru Bob Vila suggests occasionally scrubbing nozzles with an old toothbrush, then detaching the head and rinsing the filter. Or you can fill a sturdy plastic bag with vinegar, a natural disinfectant, then attach it securely over your showerhead. Let it soak for an hour, then remove the bag and run the water to flush. (Here are 6 other things you should be cleaning way more than you do.)

Just remember: No product or technique can completely eradicate all germs from your shower fixture, says Glatt. And after a few days, the little critters will be back again.

Be picky about public showers.
If you're grossed out by the appearance of a showerhead, don't use it. The same goes for the stall itself. "You shouldn't be going into a shower that's visibly soiled, especially with blood or feces," Glatt says. You're at an even higher risk of picking up bacteria in a dirty stall if you have an open wound or athlete's foot.

Put things in perspective.
The water coming out of your showerhead is no different than what's coming out of your sink faucet, Glatt points out. Any bacteria you get in your mouth, eyes, or ears during a shower is probably not going to hurt you, unless there's an outbreak of bacteria in your area or you have a serious health issue.

If your immune system is compromised, you might consider skipping showers and taking baths instead. This will lessen the chances of any bacteria—dangerous or not—being sprayed into your nose or mouth. Just remember to clean your tub and anything in it (like a non-slip mat) often.

7 Surprising Arthritis Symptoms Every Woman Needs To Know

Prevention

You know sore, achy joints are arthritis's hallmark. But pain isn't the only symptom an arthritis sufferer may have to contend with.

"In a lot of cases, people notice other things showing up before they ever have pain," says Kevin Shea, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at St. Luke's Health System in Boise.

There are more than a dozen different types of arthritis, and Shea says each type is associated with its own set of symptoms. Also, every individual arthritis sufferer may experience the disease in her own way, he adds.

Why keep an eye out for these symptoms? "Depending on the type of arthritis, if you catch it early your doctor may be able to help you slow its progression," Shea says. Early detection could also give your doc the chance to administer anti-inflammation drugs, or recommend lifestyle changes that will keep you on your feet and active. (Your diet can make a HUGE difference in your pain. Prevention's Eat For Extraordinary Health And Healing has tons of delicious recipes that can soothe joint pain, help you lose weight, and more.

5 Tasty Ways To Eat The Seed That Packs 10 Grams Of Protein Per Serving

Prevention

You've probably seen bags of hemp hearts at Whole Foods and passed them up for more approachable flax or chia seeds. But you should definitely consider buying some next time, because these little seeds are loaded with health benefits.

Hemp hearts, or shelled hemp seeds, deliver more anti-inflammatory omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and fewer carbs per serving (a plus if you eat paleo) than either flax or chia. They also have two times the protein: A 30-gram serving (or 3 tablespoons) of hemp hearts packs an impressive 10 grams. So a small sprinkling of these in your smoothie or atop a salad is a simple way to add major nutritional value. (Here are more genius salad toppers you haven't tried before.)

That's not all you can do with hemp seeds, though. Their light flavor and soft texture makes them perfect for blending into creamy sauces and spreads. Here, 6 bloggers show you how it's done.

Top 4 Things Nutritionists Look For On A Food Label

Prevention

In an ideal world, you'd only be eating foods that lack labels. "Foods that don't have labels are often some of the best things you can eat—the fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs from the farmers' market; the fresh seafood at the fish market; and the amazing whole-grain bread from the local bakery," says Susan Bowerman, RDN, coauthor of What Color is Your Diet?. But let's face it: Most of us still rely on packaged foods pretty heavily, and even if you're managing to keep them to a minimum, the occasional granola bar or frozen dinner can come in handy.

That's not necessarily a problem, provided you choose carefully. The key, of course, is reading some fine print. "Food labels are important tools that empower consumers to make smart choices," says Jennifer Glockner, RDN, creator of Teddy Tries a Veggie, a nutrition e-book for kids. (Something you don't have to ponder? The incredible benefits of Prevention's new Younger In 8 Weeks plan—women lost up to 25 pounds in just 2 months.)

Even if you're already in the habit of scanning labels, you're unlikely to spend more than a few seconds studying one before tossing an item in your shopping cart—and we're betting your eye immediately goes to a few details and then you ignore the others. That's fair enough, but are you homing in on the right info? We asked registered dieticians to share the top four things they look for on food labels to help you make healthier selections fast.

6 Tools Everyone Should Have To Ease Aches And Boost Flexibility, Besides A Foam Roller

Prevention

Limited range of motion can impact your daily life and put you at risk for injuries. And it's not just athletes who need to worry about staying mobile and loose—desk-bound workers know all too well the aches and pains of tight muscles and pinched joints. "Everyone should know how to move their body, be able to fully move their body, and move without pain," says Ryan DeBell, MS, DC, who works with people across the U.S. to reduce pain and improve movement. "Knowing how to move your body and being pain free is a fundamental human right."

A frightening 80% of adults will have low back pain at least once in their lifetime, and more than 26 million Americans have frequent back pain. Self-maintenance can help ward off many common back and shoulder pains, says John Rusin, DPT, a physical therapist who has worked with Olympians and professional athletes including NFL and MLB players. The key is having the right tools, and knowing how to use them.

Rolling around on a foam roller can feel good (unless you're making these 6 foam roller mistakes), but mobility tools do more than give you a satisfying massage—they also decrease stiffness, increase blood flow, counter irritation, and relax the muscles. You can use them to increase range of motion and warm up before a workout without decreasing muscle performance like stretching alone has been shown to do. And rollers or massage tools also help spark recovery when used after a workout. (Got 10 minutes?

7 Women Share The Heart Issues They Never Thought They'd Have To Deal With Before 35

Prevention

You're young, you're healthy, you probably don't need to worry about your heart, right? Wrong, says Suzanne Steinbaum, a cardiologist and spokesperson for the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign. "If you have a heart, you can get heart disease," she says. "It's not just something that affects old people and men." In fact, heart disease is the number-one killer of women, accounting for one in three deaths each year, according to the AHA

The difference between you and your 70-year-old neighbor, however, is the type of heart problems each of you is most at risk for. The most prevalent conditions in young women are congenital heart abnormalities, meaning you're just born with them, like a mitral valve prolapse, or genetic problems, Steinbaum says. About five out of every 500 female babies are born with a heart defect, according to the AHA.  

Your youth also doesn't excuse you from more "traditional" heart issues like heart attacks, clogged arteries, and strokes. Your set of personal risk factors, which include family history, lifestyle factors, and medical history, in addition to age, can give you a better idea of how worried you should be about your heart. For instance, the combo of birth control pills and smoking—both common in younger women—can up your risk of a heart attack by 20 percent, the AHA says.

Symptoms of heart problems can look different in young women so you should never ignore chest pain, unusual shortness of breath, heart palpitations, or pain on your left side, she adds. And even if you don't have active symptoms, it's still super important to know your risk factors and get regular check-ups. 

"Eighty percent of the time heart disease is preventable with early intervention; it's the single biggest health factor under your control," she says. "We could nearly eradicate heart disease if people would get checked early and often." 

Still think it could never happen to you? Check out the stories of these seven young women who've all experienced major heart problems.

I Crowdfunded Money For Weight Loss Surgery, And It Totally Changed My Life

Prevention

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been overweight or obese. I was the biggest kid in kindergarten, and in middle school kids started calling me Kamu, like Shamu the whale. The last time I flew without a seatbelt extender was when I was 20, and today I’m 40. I actually own different seatbelt extenders for different airlines so that I don’t have to ask a flight attendant for one. It’s horribly embarrassing.

After I met my now husband, about 10 years ago, I gained even more weight—going from 309 pounds to 381 pounds by the time we married. He’s a much smaller man with a much higher metabolism, and I started eating just as he did.
