A Handy Guide To Your Poo

// May 9th, 2008 // Science

In the course of my day I came across this useful chart called the Bristol Stool Guide. It is an attempt to classify poos into 7 categories, as below:

Bristol Stool Chart

Types 1 and 2 indicate constipation. Types 3 and 4 are the “ideal poos” especially the latter, as I call it, a “teflon coated poo”. Types 5 and 6 indicate diarrhea and 7 – well Type 7 means you are really messed up!

I hope we’ve all learned something today.
