Skin problems?

Dear HistoNetter's,
	Here's a "good" one.  I was told this morning, by a researcher,
that she could identify 2 out of the four histologist who had sectioned her
slides by the random epithelial cells scattered over her slides and
recommended that gloves should probably be worn when sectioning.  For those
of us who follow the Dr. Kay Scarpetta series of forensic murder mysteries,
it is no secret that we come equipped with zillions of identifying fibers,
hairs and cells leading to our capture in case we get up to "no-good"
deeds.  However, I didn't realize we were leaving our skin cells in the
water bath.  Is this common knowledge, or have I been working all these
years with pathologist's who just ignored these tell-tell signs?
	Very curious,
