Given the choice, what would you be most likely to press your face against: a cellphone, a steering wheel or a toilet seat?

Research from London suggests that a steering wheel has 700 different bacteria per square inch compared with a public toilet seat with 80 different bacteria per square inch.

Touch screens were not mentioned in the report, but another British study last year found that mobile phones harbor 18 times more bacteria than a flush handle in a typical men's restroom.

Call us crazy, but we're going to have to put our cellphone and steering wheel ahead of any part of a toilet on our list of things to press our face against.
