Lol, this is a good one. Could your keyboard be 5 TIMES dirtier than your toilet seat? In a recent study done over at UK, that can happen to those who frequently eat and type. (which is me too btw)
I do agree with this, they need to come up with “UltraViolet” keyboards that kill germs while you type.
Anyone who eats a sandwich or piece of fruit having been tapping on such a keyboard can pick up bacteria that could lead to a stomach upset.
The scientist swabbed 33 keyboards for food poisoning bugs e.coli, coliforms, staphylococcus aureus and enterobacteria and compared the results to those found on a lavatory seat and lavatory door handle.
Four of the keyboards were considered a potential health hazard and one was “condemned”.
Two had “warning levels” of staphylococcus aureus and two others had “worryingly elevated” levels of coliforms and enterobacteria, “putting users at high risk of becoming ill from contact”.
