Re: Marine Toilet (good, bad, and ugly)

OK, Brent. You tell me, which of the following diseases can get passed from sea lions to humans, or to primates of any kind?
Extra points if you can list the health problems that CAN be transmitted in fecal matter from sea lions to humans.
There's a reason why *human* waste is considered particularly dangerous to *humans*. Many health problems can't be transmitted across very different species.
And then there are reasons why it is illegal to spit on a public street. Yes, epidemics are real, and that easy to start, within one species.
