Stanford University has conducted a study on the bacteria that maybe lurking on our touchscreen phones and has some interesting results.

According to the study “Mobile phones harbor 18 times more bacteria than a flush handle in a typical men’s restroom.” If there is a virus or bacteria on your phones touchscreen 30 percent of that bacteria will then be transmitted to your hands and else where on your body.

So the next time you borrow your friends phone to view their pictures remember what could be lurking on their screen.

Mobile Phone Germs

Given how often that we handle our cell phones, regardless of the state that they’re in, it shouldn’t be surprising to hear how infested they are with germs. We may be conscientious about washing our hands, but maybe it’s time to start wiping down our phones too just as often.

There is already a growing market for wipes to deal with these germs on our mobiles. With one company that sells an antimicrobial case says the average mobile phone has 25,127 germs per square inch on a mobile phone.

    Ewe! We never thought of that thing because we are just thinking of what mobile phones can help us. We just know that any thing has germs but we can’t notice it if that thing gives our likes and necessities.
