Can eating crap improve our health?

A follow up on my previous post from a Slate.com article arguing why toilets have led to the demise of our health.

"The triumph of Western civilization is, first and foremost, a triumph of pipes and valves and the fact that water runs downhill. Aqueducts bring fresh water in, cobblestoned underground tunnels move used water out, and, presto, our world is clean. But here is the problem: We have become victims of our own success. Ever wonder why your dog can gobble, lick, and gnaw all he wants along the glorious buffet of a city street and (almost) never get sick? Your dog is used to eating shit."

Don't worry, the rest of the article doesn't poo-poo the advent of toilets.

More toilets in the news.... introducing the world's smallest "toilet"!

(two days of being sick and all I can think about is toilets... I wish I could flush my cold away already!)

Ok, last video clip. A helpful video clip on potty training a little one.
