A new study finds men with beards carry more germs than dogs. Swiss researchers tested the facial hair of men and dog fur from various breeds. Researchers found a significantly higher bacterial load in the men’s beards compared with the dogs’ fur; some of the men had bacterial mictorbes microbes that actually posed a threat to human health.
Experts say men should shampoo their beards regularly.
