Beards may contain more poo particles than toilets

Lots of hand washing and thorough beard scrubbing is the key gentlemen
Washington: Some men sport beards that areriddled with poo particles and may be dirtier than a toilet, according to a new study. According to a group of microbiologists in New Mexico, the rancid bacteria that beards collect could be putting owners’ health at risk.
In the study, microbiologist John Golobic, of Quest Diagnostics in New Mexico, swabbed a number of beards
searching for bacteria. Several beards contained normal bacteria, but some contained so much poo they were comparable to toilets, the results showed.
"Those are the types of things you'd find in (fecal matter)," Golobic said. If there were similar samples in thx'e water system, it would have to be shut down for disinfecting, said Golobic. Golobic, however, said that the levels of uncleanliness
were not enough to cause illness, '' reported. The microbiologist said: ‘There would be a degree of uncleanliness that would be somewhat disturbing.’ Washing hands regularly and thorough beard scrubbing is the key to keeping clean, Golobic said. "Try to keep your hands away from your face, as much as possible," he said.
