Do you use your smartphone in the toilet? Here’s why you must stop
A study found that 61.6% of people take their smartphones to the toilet, which can have serious health consequences. Smartphones carry more germs than toilet seats and can cause infections. Germs can survive on phone screens for up to 28 days.
