“You don’t just grow a beard, you grow a personality also”, famous saying the generation but we have something for you that will change the meaning of having a beard. Beards have always had a mixed standing, especially when it comes to women’s opinion. Some hate it, some swoon over it and find it really cool. But we are here with something, why is ‘Chikna’ face better.
Generally, men are said that they look better in beard than the clean chick, a recent study claims that bearded men may carry much more germs than a dog’s fur. No, we don’t want you to lose your beard but a study conducted by the Hirslanden Clinic in Switzerland, dogs are actually cleaner than men with beards.
How the study came into place?
The study was done to find out whether MRI machines can be used for both dogs and men. The scientists actually wanted to discover whether dogs are of any risk to humans and if there were chances that men might pick up any dog-borne disease by sharing the same machine. To conduct the study, swab samples from the beards of 18 men and necks of 30 dogs were tested. And the result was even surprising for the scientists.
Brace yourself for the shocking results of the study (which you have already read in the title). 23 out of 30 canines tested had high microbial count while all the 18 men had high counts of bacteria in their beard. Foremost, 7 out these 18 men contained a significantly higher amount of microbes which can make them really sick and posed a threat to human health.
“The researchers found a significantly higher bacterial load in specimens taken from the men’s beards compared with the dogs’ fur.” Study author Professor Andreas Gutzeit said.
“On the basis of these findings, dogs can be considered as clean, compared with bearded men.” He further added.
