So, you’re curious about your poop. It’s only natural to wonder about it. And, since it’s kind of weird and impolite to talk about poop at the dinner table or with family and friends, we’re flushing politeness down the toilet to help you out. You might be surprised how much poop says about you, your diet, and your overall health. It might say you’re living a healthy lifestyle or that you need to change a few things to get back on track. Whatever it says, it’s probably a good idea to listen up and take note. So, put the seat down and get ready. Here are 25 Impressive Things Your Poop Says About You.
If you suddenly have chronic and greasy diarrhea, and it smells abnormally bad, then you might have a Giardia infection. Caused by a microscopic parasite, this infection also causes nausea, bloating, and cramps.
If you haven't pooped in days, and you strain to get it out, then you're likely constipated. Make sure to eat more fiber and add more activity to your lifestyle. Straining to poop too hard can cause anal tears and even increased blood pressure in your brain from holding your breath and straining.
