A long time ago I remember seeing an episode on the TV show, Bones about fecal matter being sprayed onto your toothbrush when you flushed your toilet. It was called the Aerosol Effect. This is a link to a site that explains it. And here's another link from a site called Serendip.
We always want our husbands to put the toilet seat down after they use it. Now we want them to put the cover down also before they flush. Art says he ALWAYS does. I'm glad because it's MY bath towel that hangs right next to it.
Then again, if we protect ourselves from every germ floating around everywhere, could we be causing more of a problem in the long run? Maybe a little dirt or fecal matter isn't entirely bad.
Heck if I know.
