The Verdict Is In: Beards Are Cleaner Than Shaved Faces

Not so long ago the media was circulating stories about how beards had fecal matter in them. But today they’re singing a different tune. We recently reported on a story about new research from the Journal of Hospital Infections that claims bearded faces actually contain less bacteria than the faces of our completely-shaven brothers.

What’s more, scientists have found that there is actually potential to utilize beards in the creation of antibiotics.

Check out the video above to see a very pleased Eric Bandholz talk more about the study and the medicinal properties beards could potentially hold!
