How do you flush your toilet?
I have often heard clergymen say that the toilet is one of the best place to hear God. A clergyman, in his sermon, once said that in the morning, it is usually like a contest between himself and his wife to enter the toilet, because he hears God better in the toilet, hence, would recline.
But whilst God speaks, remember to always flush the toilet with the seat lid closed, else you might be circulating polluted water particles in the bathroom, which would take hours to settle down, and some could land on your toothbrush, Dr. Charles Gerba, a microbiologist warns.
Dr Gerba says: “It doesn’t happen all the time, but E.coli and other faecal-based bacteria really can make you ill.
Escherichia coli (abbreviated as E. coli) are bacteria found in the environment, foods, and intestines of people and animals. E. coli are a large and diverse group of bacteria. Although most strains of E. coli are harmless, others can make you sick.
Some kinds of E. coli can cause diarrhea, while others cause urinary tract infections, respiratory illness and pneumonia, and other illnesses, “so unless you want to brush your teeth with what was in the toilet, close the lid.”
