Yes, Virginia, Cell Phones Have Bacteria on Them ... And this means????

A new report is out with a discussion of microbes on cell phones: Study: Cellphones can be more germ-infested than toilet handle | News - Home. Not sure what was done in the study but regardless it seems to be focused on culture based work. And as is usually, the finding of some microbes related to ones known to cause disease leads to the inevitable conclusion that we must kill everything on the phones.

It seems to me that we need a bit more detail on what microbes are found on cell phones before bringing out the cleaners and the irradiation and such.

  1. Well if you're worried about germs growing on your cell, Motorola has come up with a clever tactic. Some of its phones have an anti-microbial coating, which prevents bacteria from growing.
