‘[Just] don’t fart naked near food’

From the British Medical Journal’s sort of trivia section:

β€œIt all started with an enquiry from a nurse,” Dr Karl Kruszelnicki told listeners to his science phone-in show on the Triple J radio station in Brisbane. β€œShe wanted to know whether she was contaminating the operating theatre she worked in by quietly farting in the sterile environment during operations, and I realised that I didn’t know. But I was determined to find out.”

This is what science journalism we need.
