Everyone is aware that public restrooms are the perfect surrounding for bacteria that cause diseases. Although most people tend to avoid public toilets, sometimes, when nature calls, there is no other option. Usually, people get shocked when they open the toilet door and many actually put toilet paper on the seat in order to avoid contact between the buttocks and the toilet seat.
Well, it turns out that these liners may have more to do with providing comfort and reassurance to the user than actually doing anything to prevent disease. The experts say that is because toilet seats are not a vehicle for the transmission of any infectious agents so, you will not catch anything. Toilet seats were once thought to be a way of transmitting gastrointestinal or sexually transmitted infections, but that idea has since been refuted in research.
Toilet seats are designed in a very smart way. Their particular shape and the smooth surface are constructed in a way to prevent bacteria from spreading. This means that bacteria cannot multiply on bare skin, therefore, any contact with the toilet seat is not so bad after all. On the other hand, sitting on a toilet paper is an entirely different story.
By covering the toilet seat with a toilet paper we do more harmful than good.Then we are not protecting ourselves at all because the bacteria and viruses are going on the toilet paper.Latest studies have shown that these splashes can go up to 2 m in height.So the next time when you try to cover the toilet seat we should think about this.Please Share
