Men with beards carry more germs in their facial hair than dogs.  

Researchers took swabs from the beards of 18 men and the necks of 30 dogs.

They found all of the bearded men showed high bacteria counts, while only 23 out of 30 dogs had high counts.

And seven men even had bacteria that posed a threat to human health.
