Is openbare toiletsitplekk regtig so gevaarlik
Soos die meeste vrouens hang ek ook soos 'n vink bo die toilet van openbare badkamers en elke wonder ek of dit regtig nodig is. Is daar regtig allerhande siektes wat d.m.v. 'n openbare toilet oorgedra kan word?

STDs and HIV cannot be caught from toilets. However, if there are bacteria on the toilet seat from faeces which has not been properly wiped away or urine which is infected, then you could pick these up. The best thing is to wipe the seat and use the disposable cover if there is one available.
