All about Poop (Feces)
FACTS: We all do it, but few talk about it. After traveling a long path through your digestive tract, food transforms into solid waste. Nutrients are absorbed by your intestine and the wastes are pushed further down at about an inch per minute. The final waste product, or poop, is about ¾ water and ¼ solids packed with dead gut bacteria. The trillions of bacteria that live in your gut are vital for digestion, and also give poop that remarkable smell!
If the trip does not go well and there is a mishandling of water absorption in the gut, then diarrhea may occur. E.coli, norovirus and rotavirus are common infectious causes of such runny poop. Whatever its texture, size, or stinkiness, poop is a great thing since the process rids your body of stuff it doesn’t need. And whether you call it excrement, stool or feces – scat, guano or dung for animals – when you feel like it’s time for a perfect #2 just shout “Poophoria!”
