Our love for junk food has probably taken its toll on us all to a certain degree. This is more apparent the older you get. After all, junk foods are by no means a natural diet intended for human beings. Even worse, it’s not just junk foods themselves that are harmful, but the act of ordering them as well, as a recent study has found that McDonald’s touchscreen kiosks are full of shit. Literally.

Well, at least, that was the case in McDonald’s touchscreen kiosks in the UK. Microbiologists were the ones to conduct the said research where they swabbed eight restaurants’ touchscreen order kiosks. They were surprised that every McDonald’s touchscreen kiosk had traces of poop bacteria on them. Junk food indeed.

“We were all surprised how much gut and faecal bacteria there was on the touchscreen machines. These cause the kind of infections that people pick up in hospitals. For instance, Enterococcus faecalis is part of the flora of gastrointestinal tracts of healthy humans and other mammals. It is notorious in hospitals for causing hospital-acquired infections,” according to a senior microbiologist of London Metropolitan University.

One kiosk was even found to have Staphylococcus which is a contagious toxic bacteria that can cause blood poisoning and the fatal septic shock. Even more disgusting is the fact that most people who use these kiosks are in a hurry and often do not wash their hands before eating their McDonald’s food.

Unfortunately, the same bacterias can be found on our very own touchscreen phone or tablet devices, but at least we do not eat food after being in contact with those… right?
