Study Shows That Beards Contain More Poo Than Some Toilets

By : Rebecca Knight |



Beards are something that have been around since the dawn and time and these days, you can see them on both old dudes and young hipster 20 somethings, but after seeing a study done by KOAT Albuquerque, they might want to reach for the razor.

Apparently, it is not just food that can get caught in facial hair, with beards one of the most unhygienic things you could actually have on your face, with microbiologists claiming that there are more germs and bacteria in a beard than around a toilet. Nice.


Some of the beards even contained actual poo and it is pretty grim viewing and I don’t even have facial hair.

So yeah, you might want to have a shave soon guys.
