Daily Reads: Everybody Poops

Ok, so maybe an article about poop isn’t the most important or thought-provoking thing in the world, but I thought it was pretty interesting. I definitely learned some things about the process of elimination, so to speak! Joseph Stromberg of Vox talks about 9 different things you may not know about poop. I knew most of these things already, but the list filled in some gaps in my knowledge – for example, although it makes sense in hindsight, I did not realize there were some fairly significant differences in male vs. female colorectal anatomy. So if you are looking for some bathroom reading, this article is the one to read the next time nature calls.

Everybody poops. But here are 9 surprising facts about feces you may not know.

    Another fantastic nugget: “If you’re interested in tracking how long it takes food to transit through your body — whether to gauge the health of your digestive system, or just to satisfy your curiosity — you can use corn kernels as a tracker.”

    I’m so on this. Corn once a week for the next year! 😀
