As if no one thought this was possible: your phone has 18 times more germs than a toilet handle after you’ve been using it, washing your hands, but not disinfecting your phone. The study, studied by Stanford University students found that:
“If you put virus on a surface, like an iPhone, about 30 percent of it will get on your fingertips,” Julian said. In turn, “a fair amount of it may go from your fingers to your eyes, mouth or nose,” the most likely routes of infection.
So rule number one: beware of the phone at display at your local Apple Store or friendly Radioshack. And don’t touch other people’s phones. And for crying out loud, don’t be a filthy pig, because the Angry Birds will get you.
