    The hand­shake is be­lieved by some to have orig­i­nated as a ges­ture of peace by demon­strat­ing that the hand holds no weapon in pre­his­tory. One of the ear­li­est known de­pic­tions of a hand­shake is an an­cient As­syr­ian re­lief of the 9th cen­tury BC de­pict­ing the As­syr­ian king Shal­maneser III shak­ing the hand of the Baby­lon­ian king Mar­duk-za­kir-shumi Ito seal an alliance. Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ruins and an­cient texts show that hand­shak­ing – also known as dex­io­sis – was prac­ticed in an­cient Greece as far back as the 5th cen­tury BC; a de­pic­tion of two sol­diers shak­ing hands can be found on part of a 5th-cen­tury BC fu­ner­ary stele on dis­play in the Perg­a­mon Mu­seum, Berlin (stele SK1708)and other fu­ner­ary ste­les like the one of the 4th cen­tury BC which de­picts Thraseas and his wife Euan­dria handshaking. In ad­di­tion, hand­shake ap­peared on Ar­chaic Greek, Etr­uscan and Roman fu­ner­ary and non-fu­ner­ary art.Mus­lim schol­ars write that the cu...

    There are var­i­ous cus­toms sur­round­ing hand­shakes, both gen­er­ally and spe­cific to cer­tain cul­tures: The hand­shake is com­monly done upon meet­ing, greet­ing, part­ing, of­fer­ing con­grat­u­la­tions, ex­press­ing grat­i­tude, or as a pub­lic sign of com­plet­ing a busi­ness or diplo­matic agree­ment. In sports or other com­pet­i­tive ac­tiv­i­ties, it is also done as a sign of good sports­man­ship. Its pur­pose is to con­vey trust, re­spect, bal­ance, and equal­ity. If it is done to form an agree­ment, the agree­ment is not of­fi­cial until the hands are parted. Un­less health is­sues or local cus­tomsdic­tate oth­er­wise, a hand­shake is made usu­ally with bare hands. How­ever, it de­pends on the situation. 1. In Anglophonecountries, handshaking is common in business situations. In casual non-business situations, men are more likely to shake hands than women. 2. In the Netherlands and Belgium, handshakes are done more often, especially on meeting. 3. In Switzerland, it m...

    Hand­shakes are known to spread a num­ber of mi­cro­bial pathogens. Cer­tain dis­eases such as sca­bies are known to spread the most through di­rect skin-to-skin con­tact. A med­ical study has found that fist bumps and high fivesspread fewer germs than handshakes. In light of the 2009 H1N1 pan­demic, the dean of med­i­cine at the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­gary, Tomas Feasby, sug­gested that fist bumps may be a "nice re­place­ment of the hand­shake" in an ef­fort to pre­vent trans­mis­sion of the virus. Fol­low­ing a 2010 study that showed that only about 40% of doc­tors and other health care providers com­plied with hand hy­giene rules in hos­pi­tals, Mark Sklan­sky, a doc­tor at UCLA hos­pi­tal, de­cided to test "a hand­shake-free zone" as a method for lim­it­ing the spread of germs and re­duc­ing the trans­mis­sion of disease. How­ever, UCLA did not allow the ban of the hand­shakes out­right, but they rather sug­gested other op­tions like fist bump­ing, smil­ing, bow­ing, wav­ing, and n...

    It has been dis­cov­ered as a part of a re­search in the Weiz­mann In­sti­tute, that human hand­shakes serve as a means of trans­fer­ring so­cial chem­i­cal sig­nals be­tween the shak­ers. It ap­pears that there is a ten­dency to bring the shaken hands to the vicin­ity of the nose and smell them. They may serve an evo­lu­tion­ary need to learn about the per­son whose hand was shaken, re­plac­ing a more overt sniff­ing be­hav­ior, as is com­mon among an­i­mals and in cer­tain human cul­tures (such as Tu­valu, Green­land or ruralMon­go­lia, where a quick sniff is part of the tra­di­tional greet­ing ritual).

    In 1963, Lance Dow­son shook 12,500 in­di­vid­u­als' hands in 101⁄2 hours, in Wrex­ham, N. Wales.At­lantic City, New Jer­sey Mayor Joseph Lazarow was rec­og­nized by the Guin­ness Book of World Records for a July 1977 pub­lic­ity stunt, in which the mayor shook more than 11,000 hands in a sin­gle day, break­ing the record pre­vi­ously held by Pres­i­dent Theodore Roo­sevelt, who had set the record with 8,510 hand­shakes at a White House re­cep­tion on 1 Jan­u­ary 1907. Dow­son's record was recog­nised by the Guin­ness World Records Or­gan­i­sa­tion and pub­lished in their 1964 publication.[citation needed] On 31 Au­gust 1987, Stephen Pot­ter from St Al­bans shook 19,550 hands at the St Al­bans Car­ni­val to take the world record for shak­ing most hands ver­i­fied by the Guin­ness Book of World Records. The record has since been ex­ceeded but has been re­tired from the book. Pot­ter still holds the British and Eu­ro­pean record.[citation needed] On 15 Au­gust 2008 Kirk Williamson and...
