Studies: Easy for Bacteria, Viruses to Get onto Them, Then Spread to People Who Use Them; Dr. Jennifer Ashton, CBS news correspondent on Cutting Risk.
(CBS) Your electronic devices, according to two new studies, have the potential to make you very sick.
A recent study from the Journal of Applied Microbiology says viruses can easily be transferred from nonporous glass surfaces, such as the touch screen of an iPhone -- up to 30 percent of a virus can be transferred from the screen of your device to your fingers.
A separate British study says mobile phones are covered with up to 18 times more bacteria than a toilet handle.
