The rise of technology has changed a lot of things in our world. We now rarely go a moment without suing some form of technology, even if it is simply for entertainment purposes.

Many folks even choose to use their cell phones while in the restroom. Now, a scary new study has come out that just might make you think twice about pulling your phone out in the bathroom.

"MetroUK asked three researchers to weigh in on the dangers of taking a phone into the bathroom, and they concluded that you could be exposing yourself and others to germs like salmonella, E. coli, and C. difficile. This could happen when you wipe yourself, touch the flush handle or door lock and then touch the phone prior to washing your hands. Or, of course, without washing your hands at all," reported Fox News.

For many people, this information makes perfect sense. However, using a phone in a restroom has become a habit for others. We hope this information makes you think twice and keeps you a but healthier in the coming winter months.

"Still a bit perturbed on the matter? Dr. Ron Cutler, director of biomedical science degrees at Queen Mary’s University London, is with you. 'Basically, you just shouldn’t (take your phone into the toilet) if you are at all concerned about the transfer of viruses and fecal contamination,'" according to Fox News.
