A recent test of men’s and women’s offices by a microbiology professor found that women’s offices had three to four time more bacteria, mold and yeast than men’s offices. According to professor Charles Gerba’s study, women had more germs on their telephones, keyboards, mice and pens, and had seven times more mold around their desk drawers. The lop-sided victory for the women is apparently due to two main reasons: women are more likely to keep food in their desk drawers; and women are more like to care fo sick family members and then carry the germs with them to work.
