A recent medical study has warned that bad bacteria that carry lung infection may be loaded in your shower.

Most people know how to clean bathrooms, especially toilets and washing machines, but researchers have discovered that showerheads in the US and Europe could be an important and responsible source of lung disease due to the "mutation" bacteria that grow in this shower part . Becoming a pneumonia infection is common.

"We live in a world of bacteria," said Dr. Matthew J. Gebert, researcher at the Institute of Environmental Science at Colorado University. "We are constantly exposed to germs in our daily lives, which are some useful and some harmful. Shower heads and water distribution systems are developing because the bacteria causing it can cause pneumonia."

In the study, Geberts and his colleagues analyzed showers from home across the Union and in Europe and found a high level of bacteria, where the type of bacteria varies according to the place of cultivation.
