A study conducted by Professor Michael Schmidt of the Medical University of Southern California showed that touch-screen smartphone contains a lot of bacteria. Bacteria that can cause flu, diarrhea, and even inflammation of the ear, reported by Genius Beauty.
This research was carried out on a number of employee-owned smartphones in the Chicago office. The results showed that more than half of the employee-owned mobile office contains E. coli. This is a proof that the office workers often ignore to wash their hands after using the toilet. In addition to E. coli, found 56 pathogenic bacteria that breed on the smartphone screen.
Not Enough just water for Cleaning
With these results, it is certainly important for us all to keep the phone. This study is also looking for the best way to clean a touch screen smartphone, but having problems. The water is not enough to clean up the oil especially the bacteria on the screen. Liquid cleaners only clean the phone without screen scraping, but bacteria can still live.
