What Causes Static Electricity in the Body?

Answer

Dry skin rubbing on clothes made of synthetic materials is the greatest cause of building up static electric charges enough to give you a shock. Materials rubbing against each other in proximity of you can give you charges through electrostatic induction. As well, machinery, skin to skin rubbing and skin to cloth rubbing are the primary cause of static electricity buildup in the body.
