So you think your manly beard makes you sexier and more attractive to the ladies? Well you may have to rethink that after microbiologists revealed the findings of a new study that revealed your beard may contain more poo than a toilet bowl. The researchers collected samples from several beards and discovered that bacteria found in some of them are the same found in fecal matter.
“Quest Diagnostics microbiologist John Golobic tested the swabs, and the results blew his mind.
“I’m usually not surprised and I was surprised by this,” Golobic said.
Several of the beards that were tested contained a lot of normal bacteria, but some were comparable to toilets.
“Those are the types of things you’d find in (fecal matter),” Golobic said, referring to the tests.”
Still think your beard is rad?
Now you know.
