According to data from the University of Arizona, shopping carts contain much, much more bacteria than a toilet seat in public restroom.
What collects more bacteria: a supermarket shopping cart or a toilet seat in a public restroom?
Not even close.
According to data by the University of Arizona's Dr. Charles Gerba, the toilet seat contains 1,180 particles of bacteria while the shopping cart comes in at a mind-boggling, whopping 860,000 particles.
