"There is no way you could do an accurate study to find out how many people wash their hands after using the restroom."
Why not? Have a bunch of college students (or bathroom attendants) stand in the corner of a bunch of bathrooms and count. No biggie. Definitely can't take people's word for it.

I travel a lot for my business and I purposely block myself from thinking about the thousands of bathrooms I've rolled my computer bag through and all the nasty tv remotes I've used.
BTW- I recently read an article about fecal transplants. Some people have a condition where they don't have the proper bacteria in their colon. So the doctor gets donor feces, checks it for diseases, blends it in a blender to make it more liquid and injects it into the sick person's colon to jumpstart the good bacteria growing. Usually the donor is a family member ;) Yum!

I hate faux statistics videos like this. Any percentage that you report is completely untenable. There is no way you could do an accurate study to find out how many people wash their hands after using the restroom. That being said, I'm certain 10% is an extensive underestimate.

The term 'fecal bacteria' is misleading.(They're just going for the EWW!! factor) Saying something has fecal bacteria isn't the same as saying something has poo on it.
There's a number of bacteria species found in fecal matter that also exist in other places.

"Okay, I need a shower now."
Shower heads can contains large bacterial concentrations as well as the bath mats and soap trays.
Now its times for wine cheese and yoghourt! Happy bacteria day all.

Just goes to show that poop is everywhere.
And the some of the facts about bacteria (like #2), shouldn't be in a list about REVOLTING facts, those little buggers keep us alive.
Hell, bread and beer technically made up of yeast piss and farts, fruit comes from ovaries and
fecal transplants, are probably going replace anti-bacterial therapies in the near future.
Best get used to it now.
