For instance, greetings such as simply stating how much of a pleasure it is to meet a person could actually do the trick.
While disease experts support the idea of removing the handshakes from our cultural customs, several University professors claim that individuals are surely able to adept their customs, even if these have been practiced for generations to come. Therefore, giving up or just adjusting the handshake, should be no major issue for our civilization.
