This is an interesting topic for all of us to consider, since almost all of us are guilty of this habit. What is the habit? Well, we are all guilty of taking our mobile phones into the toilet when we have to go take a dump. The problem with this is we may just be spreading germs quicker, as these germs are transferred to our mobile phones when we touch them after wiping up once we are done. We can increase the spread of germs such as E Coli and salmonella.
Leading hygiene professionals has suggested that your mobile phone could be contaminated with fecal matter. This is seen as a quick way to transfer bacteria and viruses on to your phone and then you could infect yourself when you put your hands on the phone and use those hands to pick up food that you need to hold with your hand in order to consume, such as; a burger, hot dog or fruits.
Researchers believe that this problem is made even more serious when you make use of a public toilet and you carry your mobile phone in the toilet. The sheer volume of diseases that you can potentially put yourself at risk of contracting through your mobile phone can be alarming. The viruses that are on your phone can stay there for days without dying and giving it the opportunity of spreading like wildfire.
You should avoid taking your phone into the toilet and stay healthy by so doing, also remember to wash your hands with soap after using the toilet and have them properly dried with a clean towel before picking up your mobile phone. Stay healthy always and remember that your toilet is not your living room, never feel too relaxed in the toilet, finish up and leave as soon as you can, as the longer you stay there the more at risk you are of an infection.
