Cell phones dirtier than toilet handles study finds
Posted by on Jul 29th, 2010

Next time you use someones cell phone think of them taking a dump.

A recent study done by consumer group Which? in the UK has found that mobile phones may be covered with up to 18 times more living bacteria than the flush handle on a men’s toilet.

Ya…lank pleasant thought that.

“Swabs and analysis of 30 mobile handsets found that seven had high or warning levels of environmental bacteria, according to consumer group Which?

One contained such an intense concentration of bacteria, including faecal coliforms, that anyone using it could have faced a serious stomach upset.

Which? said the findings suggest millions of UK mobiles would exceed the recommended acceptable levels of bacteria.” [telegraph]

Next time somebody wants to use your phone just tell them about this and that you have the squirts.
