Submission + - 1 in 6 UK mobile phones found to be "poopy"->

alphadogg writes: New research out of England finds that 1 in 6 mobile phones there are contaminated with fecal matter, most likely due to poor hand washing habits. The research, from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Queen Mary, University of London, was released over the weekend to call attention to Global Handwashing Day, which was Oct. 15 in case you missed it. Val Curtis, from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, said in a statement: “This study provides more evidence that some people still don’t wash their hands properly, especially after going to the toilet. I hope the thought of having E. coli on their hands and phones encourages them to take more care in the bathroom – washing your hands with soap is such a simple thing to do but there is no doubt it saves lives."
