The study has kept by the microbiologist James Francis who's analyzed about 33 keyboards in a London office, a toilet seat and a door handle of a toilet, by searching that germs which normally are present in common use tools.

With astonishment: 3 keyboards has been resulted as potentially harmful to health and one of them has been needed to a replacement, beacause bacteria concentration has excedeed over 150 the upper of bacteria, that is 5 times dirtier than a WC seat!

It should therefore not only maintain good personal hygiene, such as washing your hands after going to the bathroom, but regularly clean the computer keyboard, mouse included.
