how squatting in public toilets and covering the seat in tissue ‘increases your risk of injury and infections’
That\'s why many of us refuse to plant bare garbage in the toilet seat.

See the Moon Freestone, a clinical microbiology at the University of Leicester, said that our immune system is \"very good\" in protecting us from infection, and \"there is no need to squat on the toilet \".
