Cellphones Test Positive For Harmful Bacteria AKA Hold Something Against Your Face A Lot And You'll Get Germs On It

Inside Edition swabbed 15 people’s cellphones and found they tested positive for harmless bacteria, yeasts and fungus, as well as bacteria that can cause acne, gastrointestinal infection, boils, pneumonia, meningitis, and “thrush,” a mouth infection.

The report from January 2006 neglected to say whether the amount found was enough to cause infection, or whether they had tested the cellphone owners for occurrences of the bacteria found on their own phones.
