The Loo, the Poo, and You: A Journey in Life Saving

We take much for granted. Maybe too much. 
I thought you might find this tidbit interesting enough to start you on a new path to appreciation of those things we usually overlook in our daily lives.
From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, January/February 2012:
Flush Toilets
More even than the miracle of antibiotics, the flush toilet has done most to rid us of infectious disease. Without plumbed sanitation within the home to dispose of human waste, we would still be living in a brutal age of cholera, dysentery, typhus and typhoid fever—to say nothing of bubonic plague. 
A new study in Environmental Science & Technology estimates six out of 10 people on planet Earth don’t have access to flush toilets or adequate water-related sanitation. In other words, 4.2 billion human beings desperately need a technology you use every day and couldn’t give less of a [hoot] about.
The common commode, it turns out, is one of your best--and life saving---friends. 
Remember to say Thank You next time you flush.
