Mobile Disease

The typical mobile phone can harbour up to 18 times more bacteria than the average toilet handle, it has been found, after hygiene experts working for consumer guide Which? tested a selection of 30 mobile phones to see how dirty they were.

They found seven were covered in high levels of environmental bacteria which could act as a breeding ground for other bugs.  1 in 7 even harboured faecal coliforms and could have given any user a serious stomach upset.

There are approximately 15 million mobiles in the UK currently.
