    There’s a body of research out there that holds forth that after two and half to three million years plus of squatting to pass waste out of our bodies the relatively recent invention of the “sit-down” toilet – whither it be the outhouse of my youth or a fully equipped bidet – may not have been such a good idea afterall.

      I read somewhere that cultures where they squat have a more lower incidence of colon cancer and problems.
