Smart Phones are the seats for the contaminated bacteria or virus. It is dangerous to pass on the mobile phones for some vague reasons among your friends because a study shows they are seven times dirtier than toilet seats. They can even spread flu because the harmful bacteria would be resting and waiting for an opportunity to catch a person for its breed.
Using the desired stick which highlights the bacteria, the researchers found that they were only about 250 hotspots on the toilet seats but on mobile phones it was more than 1500 hot spots of bacteria. Professor Hugh Pennington, professor of bacteriology at the University of Aberdeen found the numbers of germs on smartphone and frequently used handkerchief remains the same.
Dr. Anchita Kamakar says that water and the air particles that get lodged in the narrow creases of the phone and the mobiles with phone covers are worst. There would be norovirus or flu causing virus, and contaminated bacteria that will spread even on the first touch of the mobile.
Those who use toilets fail to disinfectant their hand with proper soaps but immediately attend the phone calls or continue with their twitter, facebook or whatapp messages, without even realizing they are passing the germs to their mobile phone. After a few hours, when they feel hungry, they eat their snacks or biscuits using the same hand and the infection spreads to the stomach or to the infants if she is a caretaker of a baby.
A mere cough or sneezes would infect the smartphones and it carries the infection whoever touches it. Parents for caretakers should wash their hands properly with antiseptic hand wash each time they use the mobile phones to prevent the spread of flu or any bacterial infections to the baby or children.
