Also, Lyme disease is a tick born disease? I am not sure if you can get it from the actual animals that a tick infects, you get it from the tick biting you?

    This thread wasn't about the difference in dog poo or human poo anyway.

    Yes bubhub brings up issues that you may have never encounted, but that is because it brings you outside of the square you live in so to speak. I like being educated on different issues that I wouldn't have thought about myself. I am not sure why every one likes to think it is a personal attack?

    I try to flush as many poos as possible.. but can be a bit lazy, so after this thread I am going to try harder! The fact that so many people are saying that they didn't know you were supposed to is a good thing to me... maybe they will try from now on now that they know about it!
    Yep that's right! I always learn so much from BH! This wasn't meant to be an attack, but I was simply interested in what others do and know about this subject!

    No it wasn't, but the legality of disposing of faeces was brought up very early on. Implying that something is illegal is a rather strong way of making a point, and if that implication is incorrect it should be addressed.

    oh and also... in 2006 spinach was banned from being sold in the USA and Canada because of people becoming violently ill and some people died after becoming so ill from it.

    WHY?

    Human feces had somehow contamined the soil it was being grown in!

    So yeah, it is not unfathomable that your babies poo could become an issue one day. If poo was not an issue, we wouldn't spend billions treating our waste, we would just save money and throw out every ones poo with the trash.

    I meant that as a change in direction for what I was about to talk about, not an attack on the discussion, as I was going to keep talking about human poo vs. dog poo and was changing the topic for myself lol.

    One of the major dangers of chucking poo in the rubbish is diseases that live on in the ground long after the rest of waste has bio-degraded..for example, the bubonic plague can live on in the soil for hundreds of years, and the last major break-out of the plague was 15 years ago, so it is worthwhile considering what you are throwing into the rubbish. All of those post-immunisation poos could be carrying nasties that will re-activate an epidemic in the population long when we thought such diseases were eradicated.

    All of this talk of landfill makes me think of my favoutire piece of trivia...What is the largest man-made structure in the world?.. Fresh Kils. Yay, a rubbish dump is the winner of that one.

    Whatever rolls off gets flushed, whatever is smeared on gets binned.

    This is the one I found.
    I bin or flush. It depends on circumstances. The other day I was taking off his overnight nappy in the toilet and it was a hard one, so I popped it in the toilet. But usually it's quickly bagged and binned before I gag.
