There are two types of people: those who love to talk about poop, and those who don’t (in case you’re wondering, the author falls into the latter category). Although each and every one of us does the dirty deed, sometimes even numerous times a day, many find discussing the specifics of our bodily functions just downright icky.
But what if actually talking about this taboo topic had some health benefits?
Well, it does. In fact, you can tell a lot about your digestive health just by taking a closer look at what you’ve left behind. Granted you don’t have to talk about it with your friends, your co-workers or your kids. But if you were, say, talking to a gastroenterologist, (that’s a doctor who specializes in the digestive system), they would be able to tell you a lot about your health by just hearing what your poop looks like.
