Are we going round the[U]-bend?

What's Going On Here?
What Does This Mean?
With less poo sticking to the bowls of our toilets (I can’t believe I’m writing this sentence either), less water will be wasted trying to flush away the leftovers from your pan.
After a series of tests which involved dropping poo-mimicking substances from a height of 40cm on to test plates angled at 45 degrees (I assume this is the height and angle most of us poo from…) and using fluorescent dye to track the amount of water it took to dislodge the poo - they found that the coating resulted in 90% less water use.
Why Should We Care?
Sticky poos and reduced water usage aside, I’d personally like to know about the chemicals we could be potentially flushing into our water systems...perhaps this is research already in Wong’s pipeline...?
