How bathroom posture affects your health.

"Besides tipping over, there’s little danger in squatting over a modern sit toilet. Both American Standard and Kohler say that floor-mounted toilets are designed to hold at least 1,000 pounds."

"Americans, now fatter than ever, are having trouble standing up from a sit, never mind a squat."

"since Jimmy Carter’s bout of hemorrhoids sit toilets have actually grown in height, pushing the anorectal angle in the wrong direction. Standard models, 14 inches from floor to rim, now compete with "comfort height" toilets that tower more than 17 inches of the floor."
