Men with beards have way more germs than dogs!
Here’s the study. And we hope they took a good enough sample or did a serious dipstick on this one.
All we can say is Yuck!
This is what the study reveals- All the bearded guys in the study had high microbial counts, compared with only 23 out of 30 dogs tested.
Beard is a fad these days and it doesn’t seem to go. Hope this fashion statement is not going to stay here for long. And we are saying it for the right reasons and we have the facts.
Guys the study says it too- get rid off the beard. We are repeating the fact for your sake- a man’s beard has more germs than a dog’s fur.
Researchers at the Hirslanden Clinic near Zurich, Switzerland, wanted to determine whether evaluating humans and dogs in the same MRI scanner would be hygienic.
They did so by comparing the bacterial load in colony-forming units (CFU) of human-pathogenic microorganisms in specimens taken from 18 bearded men and 30 furry dogs.
The researchers also compared the extent of bacterial contamination of an MRI scanner used by both dogs and humans with two other MRI scanners used exclusively by humans.
Turns out all the bearded bros showed high microbial counts, compared with only 23 out of 30 dogs. In fact, seven of the men had so much beard bacteria they were at risk of getting sick, according to the BBC.
