All living things have to expel waste. It has been this way along as there have been living organisms, and yet nobody feels easy talking about it! Anthropologists have noted that even primitive peoples freely discuss their mythology, customs and sex practices, but they will not discuss their toilet habits. This talk will cover the history of toilets through the ages and the development of materials that proceeded toilet paper as we know it. Also covered will be the implications of health effects from toilet waste in the third world. This talk will ensure you never look at this commonly-used material the same way again.
