A Study Found Men’s Beards Have More Germs Than Dogs’ Fur Coats

  • A new study which sampled men’s beards found more harmful bacteria in human whiskers than in dog fur

Seven of the men tested positive for microbes that actually posed a threat to human health.

The study actually meant to understand whether humans could contract dog-borne diseases from an MRI scanner shared by veterinarians.

The research by the Hirslanden Clinic in Switzerland found that every sampled beard contained bacteria, and almost half had bugs that could be hazardous to human health.

Maybe not, but after this study it's safe to say most men's beards aren't as clean as dogs' fur.

This is compared to 23 out of 30 dogs had high counts and the remainder had moderate levels.

Stephen Tillitt, an attorney representing the victim's family, told reporters the child remains in critical condition. Police caught up with Aranda as he was waiting for a light rail train to depart at the shopping center.

After the MRI scans of the dogs, the scanners were disinfected.

"The researchers found a significantly higher bacterial load in specimens taken from the men's beards compared with the dogs' fur", said study author Professor Andreas Gutzeit. That's what a new study from the Hirslanden Clinic in Switzerland found.

Scientists took swabs from men's beards and compared them to samples from dogs' neck fur.

But Keith Flett, founder of the Beard Liberation Front, pooh-poohed the report, suggesting it's more about pogonophobia - the irrational fear of beards - than anything else.
