Research done by the Manufacturers of the household disinfectant De-tox the very famous Lever Brothers, has discovered that there are a hundred times more bacteria on your kitchen worktop than there are on a toilet seat!
The advice by the company is "never prepare food on the kitchen worktop" as it can lead to food poisoning giving you the shits and possibly spewing your guts all over the place.
The advice for safe food preparation is to cook and make sandwiches on the top of the shithouse seat. By actually spreading butter and meat fillings on bread just after someone has had a clearout you can protect yourself from dangerous bacteria.
If the toilet has not been cleaned for several weeks that will protect you even more. The new recommendations state that if you really want to clean your shithouse "AND" stay healthy-wipe the bowl with a large slice of wholewheat and make a salad sandwich not forgetting the cucumber.
Lever Brothers are always at the cutting edge of hygiene and will keep you updated on the latest techniques such as: never wash your hands after having a crap because you will destroy "good" bacteria that can protect you from the dangerous stuff in your kitchen.
