What's natural?

Proper Squatting Position for Defacation "The ideal posture for defecation is the squatting position, with the thighs flexed upon the abdomen. In this way the capacity of the abdominal cavity is greatly diminished and intra-abdominal pressure increased, thus encouraging the expulsion of the fecal mass. The modern toilet seat in many instances is too high even for some adults. The practice of having young children use adult toilet seats is to be deplored."

- Bockus, Gastro-Enterology, p. 511.

The following drawings provided courtesy Nature's Platform where they note, "The ancient Romans used the posture shown below. (Togas were easier to deal with than trousers, and provided some degree of privacy) The last picture shows a typical tourist. He might be surprised to learn that, except for royalty and the disabled, everyone used the squatting position until the second half of the 19th century..."
Unnatural Versus Natrual
Ancient Roman Posture

 

In 2001 I took a great trip throughout the Silk Road and China - it was there that I discovered "Squatty Potty" toilets, despite their lack of cleanliness, to be much more healthful than what we're accustomed to in the Western world. This is because a "squatting" position is required that places natural pressure on our intestines in addition to protecting our bottom's from having to sit on or touch anything! This bit of pressure, from squatting, is what helps move things along quickly and efficiently in addition to reducing clean-up and paperwork afterwards.

I don't think the term "Squatty Potty" is generally used to describe these toilets. Nevertheless, I use the term here because it's pretty darn descriptive. I first heard the term from Tina, our American friend in Western China, but can't say I've heard it used much since then...

Anyway, in addition to China I've been fortunate to visit various other places around the world, including Africa, where the squatty potty is the norm. And, it appears to me that most of the world has us beat when it comes to toilets in this regard. Clearly, the squatty is quicker, cleaner, and much more natural than sitting on a huge porcelain insulator. Squatties also use a lot less resources and are much easier to construct and maintain.

China Train Toilet During my trips through China and India I found the "squatty potty" to be in full use everywhere - including their trains!

Platforms?

Some folks have constructed a platform around their existing toilet. This flat surface, at the traditional level of the toilet seat, allows the user to squat over the existing porcelain structure. Also, if you look around the Internet a bit you'll see there are some suppliers and manufacturers selling "Nature," "Lillipad," "In-Lieu," and "Squat" platforms. Although I haven't tried any of these commercial ones I do have lots of personal experience everywhere else and can assure you that squatting is quick, easy, efficient and healthful - I hope you'll give it a try!

India Toilets

The toilets of India deserve a space of their own, not because they're so different, but because the country is so large (population-wise), and diverse - even when it comes to toilet matters! We visited India at the end of 2008 and really enjoyed it there. So, don't misunderstand, this section of photos is not poking fun at India, but, rather, reflects the diversity we found throughout their wonderful country!

Oh, throughout much of India, especially in tourist areas, it's common for attendants to receive a tip after you've used their restroom (actually, I've seen this practiced in other parts of the world, as well). Also, a very common sight throughout India is people (usually men) urinating alongside a road, sidewalk, or on a wall. In one of my photographs, below, you can see an open, outside urinal adjacent a busy street...

Bidet sprays ceiling!

Bidet at the Amerian Hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina - 02-04-2011 As Wikipedia describes it, "A bidet is a low-mounted plumbing fixture or type of sink intended for washing the genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus." It's believed that the bidet was invented by a French furniture maker, sometime during 17th century, and comes from their word for "Pony" - since the user sits on the device in a way similar to riding a horse...

I used this particular bidet at the Amerian hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This entry is not meant to be a slight against the Amerian - we found it to a very nice and comfortable hotel. It's just that this particular bidet was capable of spraying a solid and powerful stream of water straight into the ceiling! Click Here for the YouTube video proving my claim!

CNN.com/Technology (AP) Friday, November 23, 2007

"The World Toilet Association kicked off its inaugural conference Thursday, hoping to spark a sanitation revolution that will save lives through better hygiene and break taboos about what happens behind closed bathroom doors."

"2.6 billion people worldwide lack access to proper restroom facilities."

"Dr. Shigeru Omi, western Pacific director of the World Health Organization, said 1.8 million people die annually due to diseases related to inadequate sanitation, 90 percent of them children younger than 5."

"Providing healthy bathroom facilities worldwide would cost some $10 billion a year -- equal to 1 percent of world military spending or what Europeans annually spend on ice cream, he said. The new association aims to provide toilet facilities to impoverished countries, provide for urgent sanitation needs after natural disasters and spread information and technology for improving toilets."

Water Conservation Toilet Water Conservation
New toilets-- drive 'em to believe 'em
KOHLER, Wisconsin (AP), November 27, 2007

"With droughts parching the nation's Southeast and chronic water shortages drying out the West Coast, water utilities across the country say they're grateful for recent advances in the toilet industry, and a number of state governments are moving toward mandating the use of the water-saving commodes."

Toilets built 30 years ago guzzled 5 or more gallons of water per flush, but in the early 1980s manufacturers designed new models that needed only 31/2 gallons per flush. Congress emphasized further conservation in 1992 when it passed the Energy Policy Act, which mandated that regular toilets made starting in 1994 use 1.6 gallons."

"Consumers weren't pleased with those early low-flow models. The first flush didn't always clear the bowl, and subsequent flushes negated any water savings."

"But the newest generation of high-efficiency toilets -- developed in the last two to seven years -- does the job on the first try and uses only 1.3 gallons per flush, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency."

"'The technology is ready, it's been tested, and it's receiving rave reviews from customers,' EPA spokesman Benjamin Grumbles said. 'There's real enthusiasm for high-efficiency toilets. Water conservation is really the wave of the future.'"

"The future is now in thirsty California. Last month Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill mandating that 50 percent of toilets offered for sale in 2010 meet the high-efficiency standards, ramping up to 100 percent by 2014."

"Conservation groups hailed the law as an easy way for people to help the environment."

"'With these new toilets, it's not changing anyone's lifestyle to conserve water,' said Jim Metropulos, a legislative representative for Sierra Club California. 'It's an easy and cheap way to help.'"

"Other states, including Georgia, are considering similar measures."

"The EPA isn't specifically pushing for federal legislation, but Grumbles said his agency is providing Congress information linking water efficiency and energy efficiency. Less water flushed means less energy used by treatment plants."

"One high-efficiency model that's gaining in popularity is the dual-flush toilet, in which users press one button to flush liquid waste with 0.8 or 0.9 gallon of water, or an adjacent button to flush solid waste with 1.6 gallons."

"The flushes amount to an average of about 1.3 gallons, complying with the EPA's definition of a high-efficiency toilet."

"While a water-friendly toilet can be several times more expensive than a standard one, which typically costs less than $100, consumers can expect to recoup the cost within about two years after water savings and possible rebates from the local water company."

Charmin Toilet Paper Mr Whipple Fluffy Toilet Paper Said to Be Worse for Environment Than Hummers
FoxNews.com - Friday, February 27, 2009
"That super-soft toilet paper you're fond of using? It's an ecological disaster, environmentalists say.

"Millions of trees are harvested throughout the Americas - including rare old-growth forests in Canada - to sustain the United States' obsession with quilted, ultra-soft, multi-ply toilet paper, the New York Times reported.

"Although toilet paper manufacturers could produce products from recycled materials at a similar cost, the newspaper reported, the fiber taken from standing trees are necessary to help give the tissue its fluffy feel.

"'No forest of any kind should be used to make toilet paper,' said Dr. Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist and waste expert with the Natural Resource Defense Council told the Times.

"The United States is the largest market for toilet paper in the world, the newspaper reported, but tissue from 100 percent recycled fibers makes up less than 2 percent of sales for at-home use among conventional and premium brands. People from other countries throughout Europe and Latin America are far less picky about what they use to wipe.

"'This is a product that we use for less than three seconds and the ecological consequences of manufacturing it from trees is enormous,' Hershkowitz told the Guardian newspaper, which cited the chemicals used in pulp manufacturing and process of cutting down forests.

"'Future generations are going to look at the way we make toilet paper as one of the greatest excesses of our age,' Hershkowitz said. 'Making toilet paper from virgin wood is a lot worse than driving Hummers in terms of global warming pollution.'

 

Revolutionary corn-based toilet paper
Cleaning and Maintenance Management Online - Thursday, March 26, 2009

Ear of Corn "The winners of this year's Purdue Corn Innovation Contest successfully developed usable toilet paper from the cellulose of corn, according to HoosierAgToday.com."

"The winning team, Nature's Silk, consists of Dave Jaroch, Jessamine Osborne and Janie Stine, the story stated."

"Stine says: 'We actually use waste cellulose from the fields that's not being used for anything else. It's not going to be used for food product, or fabric or anything else."

"Osborne said: 'Right now, toilet paper is made from wood. You have to use virgin lumber and the world is becoming more environmentally friendly. The gasoline to carry the trees from the forest to the plants is becoming more of an issue. What we have here is 74 million tons of waste not used every year. We can take that waste and farmers can give it to factories that are already present and use it to make our product.'"

Every Human Being Spends Five Years of Life on a Toilet
November 23, 2009

Generally, an average person spends five years of their life on a toilet.

The World Toilet Organization (WTO) was founded in 2001 at a conference for toilet professionals held in Singapore. Currently the organization has 200 members, including Russia. At the same conference the World Toilet Organization declared its professional holiday, the World Toilet Day, which was celebrated on November 19.

The recently created international organization has plenty to do. Like any other industry, toilet industry is not without extremes. On the one hand, WTO compiles international ratings of public toilets marking them with stars, like hotels. For example, Singapore and China already boast 5-star toilets. On the other hand, some 42 percent of the world population does not have an opportunity to relieve themselves in specially designated areas and do it wherever they can. One of the most challenging issues in all countries is elimination of notorious lines in women's restrooms. World history of toilets proves that all peoples independently of each other came across the same issues and found similar solutions.

In the middle ages the achievements of ancient civilizations were forgotten. Residents of European cities were not bothered with sanitation and dumped the content of their toilet bowls right in the street. French nobility relieved themselves on palaces' staircases, balconies, or in the wall niches under perfectly trimmed bushes of luxurious parks that are now admired by tourists from all over the world. When the stench would become unbearable, a king with his people would move to another palace. By the way, these were the times when France first claimed itself as a leader in perfume production. Instead of creating designated toilets, the French were competing in creating perfumes that would cover the stench. In those times bathing was considered unhealthy, therefore strong perfume fragrances were to outshine the smell of a filthy body.

It is not surprising that under such anti-sanitary conditions epidemics of plague, cholera and other scary diseases spread instantaneously. Europeans realized it only by the 19th century and began to think about building sewage systems.

In Russia the first public toilet was built in Saint Petersburg in 1871. The toilet represented a hut heated with a Russian brick oven built above a waste pit. The novelty was successful, and soon the city officials ordered to build 42 more toilets.
