It was known that C. difficile is actually one of the very few things you can catch from a toilet seat, and that bleach--not anti-bacterial agents--is what is needed to kill it.  But a new study shows that it can be spread by the hands and can wind up anywhere--on hospital beds, light switches... you name it.  And some people can carry it on their person and spread it around without themselves ever getting infected.
