I actually read somewhere that because of the toilet bowl in porcelain, toilet water actually is much cleaner than one would think. Here:

Plus, I don't think anybody actually got sick from that mess. Pretty sure it was 100% precautionnary.

ya it was just sediment from one of the reservoirs. it wasn't like bacteria or anything like that but I did learn that apparently boiling water for one minute kills all bacteria known to man. almost makes me want to start boiling tap water instead of buying bottled water lol.

I read articles similar articles like the one above, but still...people won't drink from or wash their hands in toilet bowl water...knowing what's been there! but there are still dogs and cats that drink from the toilet bowl! and then they lick their owners in the face and mouth!!
