根據美國睡眠科學專家的研究顯示，使用5年的床褥的含菌量竟高達1,300萬CFU（菌落形成單位），含菌量比廁板172 CFU多出75,000倍！研究亦發現床具中含有多種細菌類別，包括革蘭氏陽性菌和桿菌(金黃色葡萄球菌、肺炎鏈球菌， 李斯特菌等)，而革蘭氏陰性桿菌(大腸桿菌、淋球菌， 腦膜炎雙球菌等)含量最高達41%，可引致肺炎、過敏或各類型的皮膚感染，危害我們的健康。
Bactoria & virus in a 5-years-old mattress is 75,000 times more than the toilet board
According to American sleep science experts research shows the bacteria and virus in a 5-years-old mattress is as high as 13M CFU (Colony Forming Units), which is 75,000 times more than the 172 CFU of the toilet board! The study also found that the bed contains multiple types of bacteria, including Gram-positive bacteria and bacilli (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Listeria, etc.), and Gram-negative bacilli (E. coli, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, meningitis) The content of diplococcus, etc.) is up to 41%, which can cause pneumonia, allergies or various types of skin infections, and endanger our health.
