For all you bearded men out there...I know you love you're beard but maybe shave it? According to a new study from Swiss researchers, they compared men's beard hair to various dog breeds fur. In the report it showed that a significantly higher bacterial load was shown in the men's beards compared with the dogs' fur. Kind of gross if you ask me.
Not only that, but the study showed that some of the men's beards even included microbes that actually posed a threat to human health. Needless to say, if you can't stand the thought of shaving the beard...maybe wash it more often?
