Money Can Make You Sick

I knew it!

After I touch money, I wash my hands or reach for the Purell. Years ago I saw a show that said e.coli (aka poo) was found on money. Blech!

Today, I saw this:
Yves Thomas, head of the National Influenza Research Centre at Geneva University Hospital, said that flu viruses could survive on banknotes from 24 hours up to 17 days.

What's a banknote? I am worried if someone might contaminate my American Express.
