CAR SEATS GERMIER THAN TOILETS
The booster seats in which we transport our precious children can contain twice as many dangerous germs as the average toilet, according to a new UK study.
Scientists at the University of Birmingham took swabs from baby and toddler seats and discovered an average of 100 potentially dangerous bacteria and fungi lurking in each square centimetre. In comparison, a toilet was found to contain about half that number.
The germs included bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella, which can lead to serious food poisoning and other illnesses.
