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.

I suppose I’m lucky – my husband turns 50 on Monday…and he still can’t grow facial hair.

Ladies…you can thank me later.
