Radical Travel – Staying Healthy on the Road: A Guide to Travelers’ Diarrhea and Difficult Toilets.
From the world’s worst toilets to the truth about traveler’s diarrhea, this week on Radical Travel, we take an in-depth look at how to stay healthy while traveling in developing nations. Traveler’s Diarrhea or Montezuma’s Revenge or whatever you want to call it is a real health issue, but one that not many people don’t like to talk about. We chat with Dr. Jane Wilson Howarth, author of the book, How to Shit Around the World and she shares the informative and entertaining truths of bacteria, water quality, food safety, and yes, diarrhea. We also talk about squat toilets, long drops, and how to clean your backside in a country that uses buckets of water instead of toilet paper. We’re also joined by Robert Kao, president of Purificup, a portable water filtration unit that will help to keep you healthy when traveling. All this and much more on this edition of Radical Travel!
