Beards germ nest

Vita gazette – The beard has received a lot of attention in recent years. Okay but why? Some think that the beard is preferred as because it covers ugliness, some for its ability to hide age, some for its function of saving the trouble of shaving. We can also add its use as an ideological symbol to this list. There are those who say that the media that directs the society, especially the TV series, is effective in this regard. But do we know that a beard carries more germs than furry animals or a toilet seat?

It was thought that the hairball around the mouth and on the chin could not be hygienic. It is known that cleaning and shaping the beard with the mouth after each meal is a laborious and time-consuming task. It is also a fact that this cleaning ritual cannot be done everywhere all the time! But after the results of multiple studies, some may consider cutting their entire beard; because, with the researches, it was determined that the beards contain an excessive amount of microbes.

Contains more germs than dogs

And research has revealed much more. In a study published in the Dailymail newspaper, there were results related to this. In this study, hair samples taken from 18 beards and 30 dogs’ necks were examined. And it turns out that dogs are cleaner! Professor Andreas Gutzeit, who works at the Hirslanden Clinic in Switzerland, explained the result with the words, “Researchers detected a much higher amount of bacteria in the samples taken from the beards of the men than in the hair of the dogs.” The study found that 18 bearded men between the ages of 18 and 76 were more likely to carry germs. In contrast, 23 out of 30 dogs had much lower germ levels, while the other 7 had ‘average’ germ levels.

Toilets are cleaner than beard

Again, according to a group of scientists, more germs lurk than the toilet bowl in our beard bathroom. According to an Albuquerque-based team of American researchers, the beard is home to a host of microorganisms that the toilet envy.

On the other hand, there are those who argue that the beard has a protective function from germs… The two views are still in conflict… Time will tell which one is right…
