Study finds that Uber's have have 35,000 times more germs than your toilet...

The study involved taking swabs of the most commonly touched areas in ride-sharing vehicles such as doors handles, seat belts, and window buttons. 

Ok bear with us, this is where things get a little technical...

The study found that 'ride-sharing cars' such as Uber had an average of six million ‘colony-forming units’ (CFUs) of bacteria per square inch on swabbed surfaces.

For some perspective (because who the hell knows what a CFU is), there are 171 CFUs on an average square inch of a toilet seat. A toothbrush holder can carry up to two million CFUs and a coffee maker carries an average of 32,000 CFUs...

The filthiest part of the-ride sharing vehicles? The window switches, which carried an average of five million CFUs.
