Doctors Say To Stop Using Toiler Paper


If you’re a movie buff than you may know the quote “When you got to go, you got to go.” If you’re not, it’s a scene from Jurassic Park where one of the characters runs to the washroom. Staying with this topic, when you go to the bathroom you’re not giving it much thought. You’re there to do your business, reach for the toilet paper and then leave.

But what if there was more to it? What if there was something you needed to know but were never aware of? Well it just so happens there are doctors who say that people should no longer be using toilet paper.

What could the reason be? Read on to find out why.

She points out that the use of toilet paper may not allow an individual to clean up properly. For women, those stool particles that are left behind can travel to a woman’s vaginal opening and into her urethra, causing an infection.

Aside from contracting an infection, have you ever wondered why your toilet paper is white? If it is made from wood, shouldn’t it be brown?
