After reading this you will want to make sure you do so TODAY. Researches from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Queen Mary, University of London tested 390 samples from different cities and found:
- Although 95 per cent of people said they washed their hands with soap where possible, 92 per cent of phones and 82 per cent of hands had bacteria on them.
- 16 per cent of hands and 16 per cent of phones were found to harbour E. coli bacteria that are associated with stomach upsets.
- Those who had bacteria on their hands were three times as likely to have bacteria on their phones.
Yuck! Now go grab your phone and give it a nice little wipe down.
