Eeeeeewww - Are you Brushing your Teeth with Poo?
by Tony Isaacs
Many of us have heard that flushing toilets could result in airborne particles of "poo" making their way onto our toothbrushes. In recent years, the idea of traveling water droplets with "poo" in them has been cast as a sort of urban myth, thanks largely to a segment on the psuedo-science "Mythbusters" show. The yucky truth is that what Mythbusters found in no way disproved the idea of particles traveling from the toilet to toothbrushes and what they actually found was no reason for assurance that it is OK to leave toothbrushes out in the bathroom.
When you flush your toilet it does
indeed result in water droplets
traveling through the air. Have you
ever flushed the toilet while
sitting on it? Odds are you
sometimes feel droplets of water
hitting your bottom - and those
droplets contain parts of whatever
you are flushing. Similarly, a man
who urinates standing up can produce
similar droplets that travel outside
the toilet, some of which he can
feel if his legs and/or feet are
bare. Anyone who has had the
"pleasure" of cleaning on and around
a toilet bowl knows that what is
going in the toilet also goes
outside the toilet.
