Men's beards are full of POO particles, study finds


Do you have a thing for beards? I don't blame you, a lot of ladies do.

However, your penchant for a furry man might not be a good thing... well, if you believe in science anyway.

Recently a study was conducted by Manchester Metropolitan University and Fragrance Direct that involved swabbing men's beards all over the UK.

The swabs were subsequently analysed, in a bid to find out what goes on amongst the fuzz.

I'm gonna tell you now - the results were NOT cute.

The results found that almost 50 percent of the beards contained the micro-organism 'Enterococcus spp.'

This micro-organism is also found in the human bowel and in faecel matter.

Yes, I mean shit.

But, why do men have shit in their beards?

Well, another recent study revealed that over 60 percent of fellas don't wash their hands after using the toilet.

You can do the math from there...
