Gals, your office desk is more germy than your bathroom
It's good this is a post-Valentines Day story otherwise we might be accused of being prejudiced.
The corporate behemoth Clorox has sponsored new research which suggests that women have 3 to 4 times the number of bacteria around their desks than men do.
This is something many men have long suspected. The years - perhaps centuries - of conditioning that teaches little boys that they are squalid, pustule-swollen bags of filth - are now being rolled by by scientific research.
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Your office desk harbors far more bacteria than your workplace restroom, and if you're a woman, chances are your workspace has more germs than your male co-workers', a new research report shows.
Women have three to four times the number of bacteria in, on and around their desks, phones, computers, keyboards, drawers and personal items as men do, the study by University of Arizona professor Charles Gerba showed. Gerba, a professor of soil, water and environmental sciences, tested more than 100 offices on the UA campus and in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oregon and Washington, D.C. The $40,000 study was commissioned by the Clorox Co.
