    Flushing the toilet can propel small drops of aerosolised fecal matter through the air as far as twenty feet, potentially landing on every surface in your bathroom. Studies have found faeces on taps, sinks, counters, combs, brushes and toothbrushes.

    In 1994 electromagnetic interference (EMI) from a nearby mobile phone activated an electric wheelchair at a scenic vista in Colorado, sending the passenger over a cliff. EMI from computers, radios, and TVs, as well as mobile phones, has also caused ventilators, defibrillators, electrocardiogram monitors, baby incubators, infusion pumps, and blood warmers to malfunction without warning.

    Some intestinal viruses can remain in the air after you defecate and flush the toilet, and can cause infection if inhaled or swallowed.

    You are four times more likely to get food poisoning from eating at a restaurant than eating at home.
