Your morning activities will definitely go to the toilet, unless you wake up at 12 noon. The toilet in your place is a squat toilet or toilet seat??? Then what’s the difference between a squat toilet and a toilet seat??? Here are some differences between squat toilets and toilet seats:
Squat toilets are more hygienic than toilet seats, because those of you who use squat toilets have no direct contact with your thighs or buttocks. The toilet seat is rather less hygienic because of direct contact with the skin, especially if it is rarely clean, the fungus and bacteria will gather. Moreover, the toilet is a public toilet that is not maintained properly, usually if the public toilet manager who cares for the health of the toilet seat provides disposable paper pads.
- Fast, easy and complete
Squat toilets will be easier, faster and more complete in the event of sewage in your body. If the dirt that is to be thrown away is still left, it will cause a disease that is more dangerous to your intestines, such as colon cancer, appendicitis and other intestinal problems.
Those of you who use the toilet seat when removing dirt please pay attention to how long it takes, usually longer than using a squat toilet.
Even those of you who use the toilet seat can while reading the newspaper, playing cell phones, reading books because the time needed is longer. Longer time will not be good for your health and other people waiting for the queue.
- Muscle relaxation
Using a squat toilet will relax your Puborektalis muscles which will make it easier for your rectum to open. Using the toilet seat causes your final intestine to turn slightly so that it is somewhat difficult in the process of disposal of waste, while using the squat toilet for your final part will be straight and make it easier to remove dirt.
Using a squat toilet will reduce the strain because your large intestine is aided by the thigh muscle, while using your toilet seat will be longer. Straining too long can cause health problems such as hernias and other intestinal disorders.
Using a toilet seat is effective for treating those of you who suffer from hemorrhoids so they don’t need surgery.
- Pregnant women
Pregnant women using toilet squat will reduce pressure on the uterus while using the toilet sits the uterus will experience pressure.
Some cases such as parents, people who are too fat if squatting for a long time will have difficulty getting up. This can be helped by attaching the handrails on the left or right side of the squat toilet to make it easier.
Those of you who have knee problems so they can’t squat can use the toilet seat, but still want to feel like a squat toilet can use a small chair placed right in front of the toilet seat as a footrest so that its position is almost like squatting. But still the natural squat position is better.
