The toilet seat has acquired an unfair reputation as the dirtiest item in the average household. But scientists say there are far filthier places in our house, some of them where we least expect. Would you chop your vegetables on your toilet seat? I think pretty much all of us would say No. But maybe we should think again.
Dr Chuck Gerba, professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona, studies how diseases are transferred through the environment. He says the toilet seat is one of the cleanest things you'll run across in terms of micro-organisms. There are not many things cleaner than a toilet seat when it comes to germs. We should be more worried about other household items.
