Study Shows Some Beards Are As Dirty As A Toilet – YUCK!!
If you are in a relationship with a man with a beard, you’d better listen up.
A handful of brave men allowed Action 7 News to swab their beards, and the results showed some beards are as dirty as toilets.
Quest Diagnostics microbiologist John Golobic tested the swabs, and the results blew his mind.
“I’m usually not surprised and I was surprised by this,” Golobic said.
Several of the beards that were tested contained a lot of normal bacteria, but some were comparable to toilets.
“Those are the types of things you’d find in fecal matter,”Golobic said, referring to the tests.
Golobic recommends a thorough beard scrubbing and lots of hand washing.
“Also, try to keep your hands away from your face, as much as possible,” he said.
These beards were so dirty, that if the city were to find similar samples in the water system, Golobic said it would need to be shut down for disinfecting.
Now that’s just gross!
