If you’re a guy and think having a beard is really cool, you might wanna rethink that after reading this…
Well, according to new studies, there’s more poo particles in some men’s beards than in the toilet.
Microbiologists from New Mexico found that the bacteria beards collect puts the owner at a serious health risk.
Quest Diagnostics microbiologist John Golobic swabbed beards in search of bacteria for the study, explaining, "I’m usually not surprised, and I was surprised by this.
“There would be a degree of uncleanliness that would be somewhat disturbing.”
He found that many beards contained so many poo particles, they were comparable to toilets.
"Those are the types of things you'd find in fecal matter.”
He then went on to explain that if that amount were found in our water systems, they would be shut down for disinfecting.
Want to keep your beard poo free?
Washing your hands very regularly, thoroughly scrubbing your beard and avoiding playing with or twirling your beard hair is a MUST!
Who’s reconsidering having a beard or kissing that guy with one now…?
