ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (WIAT) — Beards are big, in size and popularity. Now we’re finding out some are also as dirty as a toilet.
One TV news crew in New Mexico, swabbed the beards of a handful of men. They wanted to see what, if anything, is growing in them. They took the swabs to a lab, where a microbiologist was blown away by what he found.
“These are enterics, these are the times of things you find in feces,” said John Golobic, Microbiologist.
The microbiologist says you can keep your beard clean and sanitary by thoroughly scrubbing it, washing your hands a lot and keeping your hands away from your face as much as possible.
