Just like your hair, fingernails and skin, poop gives you valuable information about your diet and health. Don’t be scared of this super appetizing topic. Your body is trying to tell you something — read below to find out what.

Interesting infographic, informative.

It isn't always a case of 'the same poop, different pile,' since obviously our poop can certainly tell us what is going on in our bodies given the different colours, textures and shapes.
