Dirty Yoga Mats Could Make You Rethink Your Hygiene

Yoga is a workout routine that countless people around the world enjoy. Whether you like to attend a class, do it with a buddy or practice in the comfort and privacy of your own home, a yoga mat is an essential piece of gear.

But if you find yourself in a studio with a group of participants, and you realize that you’ve forgotten your mat, you may want to rethink borrowing one.

According to a professor of medicine at Rutgers, Dr. Robert Lahita, yoga mats are about as filthy as it gets.

“A yoga mat is a perfect incubator for many of our skin infections,” Lahita said., “The yoga mat is a very fertile source for infection, mainly because people sweat on them and they rarely are cleaned.”

Experts say a yoga mat is considered to be one of the dirtier things that you can use. And they are prone to transferring infections. For example, if a person who had a fungal skin infection were to use the mat before you, the next person to have contact with the mat is at risk for contracting the infection.

While most people won’t really be all that much at risk, experts say that other infections can be passed from the mats as well. These include staph and HPV, among numerous others. For those who are immuno-compromised, a common Empedobacter brevis bacteria can cause skin infections that are lasting.

Those who are diabetic can more easily contract certain infections, and they can contract illnesses that result in boils of the skin or even carbuncles from using an infected mat.

Aside from the mats being hosts for a bevy of skin infections, imagine how filthy they are when several other people have used them before you. All the sweat, skin mites, dead skin, dirt, grease and grime is enough to make you never want to borrow a yoga mat again.

So if you are overly conscious about your skin’s health, like me, then make sure you never forget your yoga mat before enjoying a session. A good rule of thumb is that if you forget your mat, it’s probably cleaner just to use the floor or to catch the next session where you can bring your own mat instead.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
