Doctors warn toilet paper does little to remove feces

Experts warn that toilet paper does little to remove feces and the United States is one country that hasn’t improved its sanitation when wiping.

While countries such as Japan, Italy and Greece use bidets in the toilets as a way to keep the anus clean, the US has mostly relied on toilet paper as the norm to keep that area clean.

But doctors say excessive wiping could cause health problems such as anal fissures and urinary tract infections.

Though the suggestion may sound absurd, celebrities such as will.i.am, Will Smith and Terrence Howard have been vouching for baby wipes instead of tissue for years – with Smith even hailing the habit as ‘special and incredible’.
