A new study that sampled men’s beards found that they carry more harmful bacteria than what is found in a dog’s fur.
“The researchers found a significantly higher bacterial load in specimens taken from the men’s beards compared with the dogs’ fur,” says professor Andreas Gutzeit from Switzerland.
The study actually intended to understand whether humans could contract dog-borne diseases from an MRI scanner shared by veterinarians. The researchers took swabs from the beards of 18 people and the necks of 30 canines of various breeds. They found that all of the bearded men, who were aged 18 to 76, had high microbial counts, while only 23 of the 30 dogs showed similarly high microbial presence.
Seven of the men tested positive for microbes that actually posed a threat to human health.
“On the basis of these findings, dogs can be considered as clean compared with bearded men,” says Gutzeit.
Scientists also wiped down the MRI scanner after examining the dogs and found a “significantly” lower bacteria count compared with levels after human use.
But many men beg to differ with any negative assessments of their beards, pointing out that some folks’ maintain better hygiene than others.
