(KGTV) - Did a toilet company really make an uncomfortable slanted toilet so companies can discourage employees from taking long bathroom breaks?

Yes.

Standard Toilet has created a new sloped toilet that is angled on a 13 degree gradient.

But there is no evidence that any company has actually installed it as a way to reduce the time of employee bathroom breaks.

On its website, Standard Toilet says the sloped design also has health benefits including preventing swollen hemorrhoids and weak pelvic muscles.
