HYGIENIC TISSUE MISUSE AND ITS SEWER AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT, IN LATIN AMERICA
Bodily sanitary habits have evolved in the last centuries in many countries. Several manners and fashions now used in Latinamerica came from Europe. Some were well adapted to local conditions, while others had some adjustment flaw and may not lead to the proper result. This paper's topic may seem trifle and bizarre to western and modern minds, but is a kind of taboo not much spoken about in Latinamerican forums or publications. This cultural practice represents problems and risks, besides a vain waste of resources, time, comfort and aesthetics.
