Is it healthier to urinate sitting down?
« on: 16/03/2009 21:07:53 »
I have been told, notably mostly by German friends, that it is much healthier to pee in a sitting position for men rather than the usual standing up position.
Even further that this reduces the risk of prostate cancer.
I am very skeptical and think it is feminist propaganda  ;)to have equality everywhere even in the toilets, appart from the fact that I concede that it reduces the risk of spill overs...
Has anyone any hard facts on this ?

I think German friends might have something to do with it. :)

Have the German sewer authorities complained about the problem caused by the "spuks" getting "accidentally" flushed?
