Sitting to Squatting Toilet Converter - A Great Invention
by Trent Landers
(Reno, NV. U.S.A.)
I have been a squatter on my toilet rim (not seat) since I was came home from Vietnam in the late 60's.
When I got home, I realized how different it was to relieve yourself and kind of missed the feeling of complete evacuation. But sitting is so much more comfortable for all ages of people usually.
However, if you still have a sense of balance then this toilet converter is very functional. I am thinking about buying one for my dad who suffers from several gastro-intestinal problems.
I have two comments:
1) Your research is based on non-scientific studies. Study protocols could be done intra-continentally using populations in major cities both western and eastern.
But your number of people would have to be around 5 THOUSAND participants in each country, you would have to follow them for a 5-year period.
And you would have do periodic check-ups with a medical staff using barium enemas or some sort of imaging protocol and have those protocols examined by certified Enterologists and written up in an accepted Medical Journal.
It is not enough to say that it seems that Asian people do not have the problems that western people have in gastroenterology areas.
You also did not account for the HUGE difference in what the different cultures "ate". Red meat could be a huge part of the problems and diseases you mention in your explanation.
In addition, stress, genetics, environmental aspects and cultural norms were not adequately described. Example: it is common for Americans to "hold it" until their busy schedules dictate they can relieve themselves.
Lastly, 2) Your shipping charges for this invention is ridiculous. You need to find a cheaper way to ship your product or modify your product so that it can be shipped more reasonably.
I would not buy it just for that reason. But good work, you did well.
