Microbiologist: Beards are filthy - some literally 'as dirty as toilets'

Are you a fan of beards?

Stop reading now.

Are you trying to get someone close to you to shave off their winter warmer?

We might have just the ammunition you need for your argument (especially if you're kissing a bearded fella).

According to one Albuquerque, N.M., news station, beards can be as dirty as a toilet.

The station went to visit microbiologist John Golobic at Quest diagnostics, where they gave some volunteers a good ole fashioned swabbing.

However, your body is covered in bacteria, so to some (like at the Washington Post), this isn't really a big deal.

The solution seems to be an easy one, though.

Wash your beards guys! A good scubbing will go a long way.

What do you think? Does this change your beard opinions?
