My fellow blogger ScienceLens tells us that today is World Toilet Day. You might like to check out that post, including the animation and the link about ‘stop making fun of World Toilet Day!’
As you know, infectious disease is close to my scientific heart. Infant mortality is falling in sub-Saharan Africa but there’s a long way still to go. Millions of kids are still dying for lack of a decent toilet. For adults too, proper sanitation would make a huge difference. So yes, I give a shit. Do you?
