Men’s beards carry more germs than dogs
A new study conducted by researchers in Switzerland revealed that men’s beards carry more germs than dogs.
According to the Daily Mail, the researchers collected samples from the neighborhood of 18 men and the fur of 30 dogs, and analyzed them found known bacteria that pose a threat to human health.
The beards of all men contained many types of high-risk microbes, while the same species appeared in only 23 dogs.
Professor Andreas Gotzeit, principal researcher in the study, said, “Researchers found much higher bacterial contamination in samples taken from men’s beards, compared to dog fur.”
Other studies have revealed that the beard protects the man from the harmful UV rays of the sun, as it increases the attractiveness of men.
