Even the microbes are so fond of women!

Women, they are not only the favorites of poets, but also of many microbes. A recent survey conducted on 102 individuals revealed 150 different bacterial species. The number of species in the hands of female individuals was 50 % more than that of the male candidates.

This does not implicate that women are less clean. It might be because of the pH level of the female hands or might be due to the sweat gland secretion that is very different from the males. This may also be a result of the way women wash their hands.

There are in fact more microbes in the palm of women than in her small intestine or elbow. Normal hand wash does not help in getting rid of bacterial flora of our hands. Antibacterial/antimicrobial hand wash soaps and solutions would come ‘handy’. All the bacterial species are not harmful to us and if we were able to find out the harmful and harmless bacterial species, it would create a medical revolution.

Beware gentlemen!!! ha ha ha
