Your Beard Has Poop In It According to New Study

According to a new study performed by Action 7 News in New Mexico, your beard has poop in it. For real.

Quest Diagnostics microbiologist John Golobic found out the sad and disgusting truth after the news team swabbed a handful of men’s beards. According to KOAT,

“I’m usually not surprised and I was surprised by this,” Golobic said.

Several of the beards that were tested contained a lot of normal bacteria, but some were comparable to toilets.

“Those are the types of things you’d find in (fecal matter),” Golobic said, referring to the tests.

Even though some of the bacteria won’t lead to illness, Golobic said it’s still a little concerning.

“There would be a degree of uncleanliness that would be somewhat disturbing,” Golobic said.

Golobic recommends a thorough beard scrubbing and lots of hand-washing.

How the hell does poop get into your beard? That’s all we want to know. Looks like these folks are going to need way more than a thorough scrub-down.
