New research by the Royal Society of Chemistry has said that your computer may pose a massive health hazard.
The report says that mice are leaving droppings in computer keyboards during the night when they hunt for food crumbs on keyboards. RSC spokesman Paul Gallagher said, "We are asking office workers to take photos of offensive keyboards and workstations and to email them to us at the RSC. We will give Ģ300 to the sender of the most awful image. We won't entertain photos that are contrived and will need witnesses."

In 2008, a study by Which? found that computers are a health hazard and harbor more bacteria than a toilet seat.
