Men Do Care For Cleanliness



I was surprised to read this. Women's hands are dirtier than men's. A study conducted by researchers with the University of Colorado claimed this. Women have a huge range of bacteria on the palms of their hands than men, the study found.



According to scientists at the University, a hand has 150 forms of bacteria but women generally had a greater number. The study found over 4,700 various kinds of bacteria on 102 hands. However only five species were shared among the participants. The recent study also killed the eternal notion that men don’t care about cleanliness.

If men did the things that women normally do during a day they'd have the same results, it's not about cleanliness it's about what you touch.

Studies like this make me cringe since they are not as objective as they claim.

No supriese that men's hands are cleaner than womens, that's coming from a personal point of experience. But then I'm a very hygienic male.

I don't agree with this study- men are more dirtier than women with offcourse some exceptions.
