The periodic table was a classification. The different blood types, I can understand somebody being interested in. But, seriously, there was a person who decided to categorize different types of poop? I used to joke that my humor is scatalogical. But, I can't anymore; those scatalogists will sue the, ahem, crap out of me! ;)
poops come in all shapes and sizes — as shown in the Bristol stool scale, created by the University of Bristol's Ken Heaton, at right — but Chutkan says the ideal poop is a three or four on the scale.So ... which type are you? Pay attention from now on. hehehe!
So, is there any good, clean kind?
A very fiber-heavy diet — the type eaten by many people in developing countries, and by some vegetarians in the US — leads to much denser and bulkier poops. "They're bigger movements that come out more easily," she says. "And there's very little need to wipe — it's a much cleaner evacuation.""Evacuation" is the best possible euphemism here. "Honey, I will be back after I evacuate" sounds much more confident and purposeful in life than, "Hey, I am going to take a shit."
The piece ends with what, you, and I are familiar with: fecal transplant. Remember the post from two months ago? Care to revisit that shitty post? I dare you! Oh, this includes a warning that fecal transplant should not be tried at home. Gee, thanks for that!
May you be regular with Bristol #4! ;)
