📰 Beards🎅🏻 Are More Hygienic✨
Research claims that clean-shaven👱🏻 men are actually more likely to h
arbour antibiotic-resistant bacteria👾, while beards may contain bacteria with the potential to develop into new antibiotics💊. Swabs from the faces of 408 hospital🏥 staff with and without facial hair were tested and the results showed that clean-shaven👱🏻 men are more than three times as likely to be carrying antibiotic-resistant bacteria👾 on their cheeks as their bearded counterparts🎅🏻. Clean shaven men were also over 🔟% more likely to have colonies of Staphylococcus aureus👾 on their faces, a bacterium that causes skin and respiratory infections, and food poisoning☣ possibly due to micro-abrasians caused by shaving in the skin, “which may support bacterial colonisation and proliferation”. However, from the beard🎅🏻 swab samples, the presence of a microbe that appeared to be killing the other bacteria was also found, which when tested against E-coli, killed the disease spreading bacteria.
So, now that we know, we’re even more pleased that PM Modi sports a beard👍
