This may be the most disturbing statistic I've read this month-- Times found that 1/6 cell phones are contaminated with fecal matter. The London School of Hygiene at University of London analyzed 780 samples, and 16% of them were contaminated with E.coli of a fecal origin. Why?
It turns out that many people don't wash their hands after using their toilet, and studies show that "men wash hands less often than women in public bathrooms."
And not that we shouldn't fix our behavior, but fortunately the bus were found to be "more or less harmless," but still.
...So you might want to think twice before using someone else's phone--then putting it on your face!
What do you think? Do you wash your hands after using the bathroom? Do you think the studies are correct in that men wash their hands less frequently?
