We've heard all kinds of reports about who might be the germier sex. Of course, you know that women's restrooms tend to be dirtier than men's, according to studies, which is a fact that still surprises me. We also know that men's fingernails tend to be dirtier than women's. So, who is the germier sex, in total? Results are in!
Well, that's according to a recent Wall Street Journal article anyway. And, the article seems to point out that it's our offices that are the major offenders:
"After testing surfaces and objects in 113 offices in five cities, the Arizona researchers found that women's offices had more than twice the bacteria of their male counterparts. Makeup cases, phones and purses had the highest number of bacteria."
How about we all go clean and sanitize our offices and phones, right now--what do you say?
P.S. If you want my unscientific opinion, I still think that dudes are germier. Sorry guys! Just my hunch.
