I think we can blame part of those stats on meat eaters who like to sling around salmonella and E. coli. But then again, I know my kitchen isn't exactly sanitized eitherOriginally Posted by OregonAmy
yep, the kitchen's usually the least-sanitary room in the house.
Yeah Mondays can be rough. But you can't just let the germs win you over.. resist the dark sideOriginally Posted by Jessica Alana
I'm not a meat eater, but I sling around salmonella and e.coli. Sometimes. Usually only on Mondays or whatever. Nothing's ever good on TV on Mondays.

That was gross.
I'd say none of these things have happened because it is more of a 'yuck' factor than a serious health risk.Originally Posted by Joe
I must say that I am more than a bit skeptical about many of these claims and about the idea that this "research" has been published for over 30 years and yet has had no impact on medical advice, bathroom design, etc.
I'd certainly be willing to place some sort of cover over my toothbrushes to protect them from the "aerosol" of bacteria, and I'd certainly be willing to put the lid down every time before flushing, but many of the other things seem far-fetched.
It would seem that if what was in the article were true, then people would simply behave differently in their bathrooms. For example, it would be fairly easy to place some sort of cover over the toilet before flushing (with the lid down), like a thick towel, to contain the "spray." So, why does no one do this? Why have I never heard of anyone doing this? Not even very health conscious people, sick people, immune-compromised people, etc.?
It seems also that since we have sinks in hospitals and medical facilities that have handles that doctors do not have to touch with their hands when scrubbing before surgery, that we could have the same sort of sinks installed in our homes. But no one does this, not even doctors, AFAIK.
I am just skeptical of the whole thing.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: I don't use seat covers, I don't squat. I put my butt right on the seat. I think my butt germs can take their butt germs in a battle.
