There is something that many men do on a daily basis, regardless of whether they enjoy doing it or not. I’m talking about shaving, and many men enjoy being clean-shaven but not all of them. As a matter of fact, there are many men who enjoy having a beard and regardless of whether it is well trimmed or if it is growing out of control, it is something that they are able to do naturally.

Most men try to take care of their beards but a new study is now changing the mind of people who are on the fence about whether to sport some facial hair or not. It was made by a New Mexico microbiologist and he did a study of various beards, making the shocking discovery in the process.

As it turns out, there is a lot of bacteria in beards and it seems to be encapsulated along with about as much fecal matter as you would find in a standard toilet. Some of the beards that were tested only contain normal levels of bacteria but in some others, it was enough to cause a person to get seriously ill.
