If you knew me personally, you’d see that I’m not one to be afraid to talk about poop. Specifically, having healthy eliminations. Like urine, your poo says a lot about what you’ve been consuming; it’s pretty significant to know how things are processing.
The word “poop” comes from the Middle English word poupen or popen which originally meant “fart.” The word evolved into “poop” (with its current meaning) around 1900.
Not surprisingly, vegans have the best poop in the land according to a recent study done by the University of Bristol. I’m going to let Dr. Greger from Nutrition Facts give you the scoop on poop though; he does it with more grace and composition than I’d ever have using the term, “smooth vegan snakes.”
