According to a study done by Hollins University, 48 per cent of sodas served from soda fountains are contaminated with coliform bacteria. Coliform is a form of fecal contamination.
The study also found out that 11% are contaminated with E. coli.
These microbes may cause gastric distress, according to the researchers.
Stretching is a form of physical exercise in which a specific skeletal muscle (or muscle group) is deliberately elongated to its fullest length (often by abduction from the torso) in order to improve the muscle's felt elasticity and reaffirm comfortable muscle tone.
The benefits of stretching are:
- may improve range of motion
- reduce risk of injury during activity
- prevent post-exercise muscle soreness
- slow delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
