Those particles can even end up in your the medicine cabinet. I don't want that stuff on my tooth brush. Second, it's bad enough when the cat puts dry paws on my face because I onow those things have been in the litter-box. Wet paws after having played in the toilet... So yeah, forget the whole I don't want to fall in bit. Put the lid down and keep the toilet contents where they belong.
The study I read (Several years ago and I don't remember where) said that flushing with the lid down didn't really help. It means that the person who lifts the lid gets a face full of that aerosol.

Try working at a nursing home. I hold my breath as often as I can since I know the particles are floating through the air. (Not really but it has crossed my mind)
