Fox News host Pete Hegseth revealed on Sunday that he does not wash his hands because "bacteria are not real things & # 39 ;.

The startling revelation came after Fox & Friends co-host Jedediah Bila told how Hegseth had eaten leftover pizza that had been on the set the last day.

Pizza Hut takes a long time, & # 39; Hegseth replied, justifying himself.

& # 39; My resolution of 2019 means things about air that I say from the air.

I do not believe I have washed my hands for ten years. Really, I was not really my hands ever. & # 39;

& # 39; I inoculate myself & # 39 ;, he continued.

& # 39; Germs are not real. I can not see them. That's why they are not real. & # 39;

Hegseth then further questioned his rant, his unhygienic habits gave him an immunity against illness.

& # 39; These hands look pretty clean, & # 39; he remarked.

The thinking of Hegseth is at odds with the science that has long confirmed that bacteria and microbes live almost everywhere: on food, animals and plants, in the air, in earth and water and in the hands of people.

Washing hands is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect against germs and most infections to remain disease-free.

It also prevents the transmission of infections and viruses to other people.

The careful washing of the hands is recommended for preparing or eating food, after coughing or sneezing, after changing a diaper and after using the toilet.

When soap and water are not available, hand sanitizer gels can provide protection based on alcohol, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Vaccination is also useful for the prevention of certain diseases, because scientists develop vaccines as soon as they discover what causes a particular disease. Both adults and children should be regularly and routinely vaccinated, according to health professionals.

Those who posted on Twitter were keen to point out the extent of the horrible proclamation of Hegseth.

& # 39; Ewwwwww! Not something to brag about, "wrote one. & # 39; That's disgusting! & # 39; another said.
