A Shocking Realization
I just read an article that made me do a double take.
The headline was:
“Your Cell Phone Has 17 Times the Bacteria as a Public Restroom.”
As a confirmed skeptic, this headline had me thinking.
Which restrooms did they use to test? Whose cell phones did they swab for bacteria? Who did this study?
The first two questions were not answered in the article.
The study according to this report was however, done by “EXPERTS.”
Obviously the study is accurate. Experts say so, and anyone who disputes experts is just anti-science! That is not me, I am a skeptic, but I have always been pro-science. Science is good. I like science.
So, as a pro-science yet skeptical person, what am I to make of this article?
I can only assume they took a fair distribution of cell phones to test, and they for sure must have tested public restrooms in an assortment of fine restaurants and also dirty spoon highway diners and gas stations.
I know from simple observation and my own practice that most people only use their cell phones to call or do research. They do not wipe their backsides with their cell phones, they do not pick up after the dog with their cell phones, their cell phones mostly just come in contact with their own hands.
Most people wash their hands a few times a day, and shower at least several times a week. You would think their hands would be relatively bacteria free. And yet this study by EXPERTS has determined that your cell phone is 17 times dirtier than a public restaurant. Not just twice as dirty, mind you, not 12 times dirtier, but 17 TIMES MORE BACTERIA ON YOU CELL PHONE THAN IN A PUBLIC RESTROOM!!
Since I am not anti-science, I can only reach one shocking conclusion. A realization that I would have never thought in a million years.
Public restrooms must be really feckin clean!
Thank you experts, now I will not worry as much as I used to when in a public restroom. Wash my hands after using the restroom?
The damn place is 17 times cleaner than my cell phone!
