The Shocking Truth about the nasty bacteria and other infections spreading on your PC’s and other office equipment!
A recent article published by the National Research Center states:
… research from Dr. Peter Wilson of University College London Hospital has shown that our keyboards have very high levels of bacteria on them all the time. His study involved taking samples from 33 office keyboards in London to see how many bacteria were on each one. Four of these keyboards were considered potential health hazards, and one had more bacteria on it than a toilet seat in the office bathroom.
Previous research by University of Arizona researchers also found that the average desktop has 400 times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. That study took samples from offices across the United States, and also showed that women's desks tended to harbor more bacteria than men's.
A study at Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital found that two deadly drug-resistant types of bacteria (vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)) could survive for up to 24 hours on a keyboard, while another common but less deadly bug (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) could survive for an hour…
