Acne Bacteria Found on Dollar Bills

Acne Bacteria Found on Dollar Bills

Posted in Acne News by Melissa Schweiger Kleinman. | Leave a Comment
Got acne? Your money could be to blame. Researchers recently discovered over 3,000 types of bacteria living on dollar bills--and the most prevalent bacteria was the one that leads to acne breakouts. According to the Wall Street Journal, New York University researchers studied DNA on dollar bills and found that our currency is actually host to species that cause acne as well as those linked to food poisoning, pneumonia and staph infections. Dirty money indeed! Dollar Bills Contain Acne Bacteria | Clear Clinic Money frequently changes hands and with that comes real health concerns. If there was ever a reason to wash your hands after handling money, now is the time to begin! The U.S. one-dollar bill, which is printed on a blend of cotton and linen, is an ideal host for bacteria and organisms. The article says that the body-temperature wallet is a virtual petri dish for bacteria. If you have acne, take great measures to wash your hands before touching your face--especially after going to an ATM or paying for a cup of coffee.
