People Of the UK -- Wash Your Hands and Your Phones!

By Sam Gibbs on at

People still don't take hygiene seriously.  A study of 400 Brits across the UK found 16 per cent of phones harboured E. coli strains found in your gut -- a marker of faecal matter.

Yep that's right, poo. Boffins from the LSHTM and Queen Mary's found 16 per cent of phones and hands tested across the UK were covered in shit. What's the first thing our Mummies told us? Wash your hands Samuel -- there's a good boy. Some people obviously didn't learn that lesson. Maybe it's time to disinfect that phone that you shove up to your face if you ever make a call hey?
