A survey conducted by the Korea Consumer Protection Board, test conducted on six items that commonly handle by public and run the test for the Bacteria content, and they have identified shopping cart handles are the most infected item.
Shopping cart handles led the way with 1,100 colony forming units of Bacteria pre 1.55 sg inches followed by a mouse used on computers internet cafes, which had an average of 690 colony forming units. The reason that shopping cart handles had so much bacteria is because the area is larger than the others and people have more space to place their hands.
And an other area is on hand straps on buses were next with 380 units, followed by Bathroom door knobs at 340.Rounding up the list were the elevator buttons at 130 colony forming units, and the hand straps on subway 86.
