Bearded men carry more germs than dogs

With cold and flu season upon us, I’ve noticed that more of my friends with beards are the ones who constantly get sick!

So, I turned to the internet to research my theory – so listen up ladies, this might give you a reason to tell your man to shave it off because the results were disgusting!!

Swiss researchers at the Hirslanded Clinic discovered that men’s beards carry more germs than dogs do in their fur.  Scientists swabbed the beards of 18 men and the necks of 30 dogs, across a range of breeds, and compared the results.

They found a much higher bacterial load in the specimens taken from the men’s beards compared with the dogs’ fur. Seven of the men were found to have microbes that were dangerous to human health.

Researchers say that dogs could be cleaner than bearded men.

I will let your shocked stare at your husband say it all.
