Next time you pick up a bearded hipster from the lovely northern burbs of melbourne, you may want to disinfect the seat they sat on and the door handle they touched.

"The jury has long been out on whether men look better with or without beards, but a new study has found one thing regarding facial hair to be true — beards harbour more germs than dog fur.

Swiss scientists made the alarming discovery after taking swabs from the beards of 18 men and found every single sample was crawling with bacteria. Nearly half of the beards tested in the study carried germs that posed serious risk to human health.

“On the basis of these findings, dogs can be considered as clean compared with bearded men,” Professor Andreas Gutzeit from the Hirslanden Clinic told the Mail on Sunday. "

I have a bottle of Febreze in the boot which promises to kill 99.9% of known germs! That should help... I hope ?
