"This study provides more evidence that people still don't wash their hands properly, especially after going to the toilet," Dr. Val Curtis of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine said.
Furthermore, when the people were surveyed for the study, 95% claimed they wash their hands with soap and water. Yet 92% of their cell phones and 82% of their hands showed various bacteria. And the dreaded E. coli bacteria was on 16% of hands and cell phones. Sounds like too many people are not being truthful! Liars, liars, pants on fire!
"'People may claim they wash their hands regularly but the science shows otherwise,' said Dr. Ron Cutler, of Queen Mary, University of London. A person can transfer fecal bacteria by touching door handles, food and mobile phones and, from there, to other people."
Seriously disgusting, isn't it?!
