How dirty is toilet water?

Most modern toilets in today’s homes are cleaned on a regular basis, flushed right after use, and filled with fresh water (free of most contaminants). The water in your toilet bowl may not have as much harmful bacteria as you thought it did, but water isn’t all that’s in the bowl.
