Dr Oz: Are Your Husband’s Bad Habits Making You Sick?

By on September 16, 2010

Doctor Oz did a segment on if your spouse’s bad habits could make you sick.  This is a very interesting question, and I cannot wait to tell my husband that Dr Oz is on my side… toilet seats must be put down! List of Husband's Bad Habits

Dr Oz’s List of Husband’s Bad Habits That Make You Sick

1.  He leaves the toilet seat up… my husband is so guilty of this!  Dr Oz said that when you flush the toilet with the toilet seat up, a plume of feces, urine and toilet water can shoot up to 20′ across the room.  This means, your toilet water could be getting on your toothbrush, your comb, your towels… yuck!  So before you flush the toilet, put the toilet seat down AND put the lid down as well.

2.  He wears underwear from the laundry basket… so dirty underwear.  Luckily, my husband is very clean and does not do this.  Dr Oz said that dirty underwear can hold bacteria, like e. coli which is naturally found in many parts of your body, but when your husband transfers the e coli to you and give you a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), which is absolutely no fun.

3.  He uses your bath towel.  Fungal infections can get transferred to your towel.  So for example, if your husband has athletes foot, it can get on the towel and then when you dry your groin area with the same part of the towel, you can get a terrible rash similar to jock itch.  So color code towels (have one color for men and one for women).

4.  An added bonus tip – Do not share toothbrushes with anyone either!
