Infographic: Your dirty habits making you sick

This infographic by Ion Swipes takes a look at some disturbing stats concerning germs at home and the workplace.

Ion Swipes recently published an infographic that provided some disturbing statistics concerning germs at your home and workplace. One of the grossest stats is that 16% of cell phones have fecal matter on them. My guess is that these folks are leisurely or multitasking poopers, who either turn to Angry Birds or answer text messages during their toilet time.

Do you use technology in the bathroom? If so, I highly suggest that you stock up on some ionSwipes anti-microbial wipes and keep them right next to your anti-bacterial hand soap. For goodness sake, keep your hands and your technology clean!
