Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Live Subscribe Log In Subscribe Log In Advertisement Supported by Altruism, and a little financial incentive, can be motivating factors. ByRoni Caryn Rabin June 5, 2018 Wanted Fecal transplants are being used increasingly to treat Clostridium difficile, an often intractable and debilitating bacterial infection. The potential for expanding the therapeutic applications of fecal transplants sent Canadian researchers on a quest to pinpoint what precisely motivates stool donors and how they might recruit more volunteers. For their study, 802 people in the United States, Canada and England completed an online survey that assessed their attitudes about becoming stool donors. Respondents were, not surprisingly, put off by the unpleasantness that would be involved in collecting stool samples. And most said the time commitment that would be required would be a deterrent — most centers … [Read more...] about Do You Have the Right Stuff to Be a Stool Donor?
Think colonoscopies are only for old men? I’m a nurse and I did, too—until I was diagnosed with colon cancer one month after the birth of my youngest son. I was 34 years old.The fact is, since the mid-1980s, rates of colorectal cancer have actually dropped among Baby Boomers but increased among people under 39, according to a 2017 report in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The American Cancer Society attributes the trend to rising rates of obesity, an unhealthy diet, and a lack of exercise, all of which have been linked to colon cancer.

Sure, I wasn’t particularly athletic and I ate a diet filled with plenty of of meat and potatoes.

But the bottom line … [Read more...] about ‘I Was Diagnosed With Colon Cancer At 34 And It Was Embarrassing’
It is terrible to feel as if you have to go to the washroom, and yet nothing comes out. If you’re having a problem with regular bowel movements, prune juice for constipation may be the solution. In a healthy body, waste travels through the digestive tract in six to 24 hours. When it passes through the large intestine too slowly, this is called constipation.AdvertisementConstipation among the elderly is especially prevalent. In fact, constipation affects 50% of community-dwelling older adults, and 74% of those living in a nursing home. A healthy person has one to three bowel movements each day, but when the bowels are constipated, you likely haven’t passed a stool in two to three days. Also, when the bowels are constipated, it is not just difficult to pass stools; the urge to pass waste may disappear altogether. Sometimes constipation has no signs, but at other times you may pass painfully hard stools, experience a general feeling of malaise, or have a distended … [Read more...] about Prune Juice for Constipation: How Much & How Long Does it Take to Work?
Hemorrhoids—the veins in your anal canal—are completely normal. It’s when they become swollen and inflamed when they become a problem. That’s what people generally mean when they say they have hemorrhoids.And when hemorrhoids are acting up, they can certainly be uncomfortable. But how exactly they affect you depends on what type of hemorrhoid we’re talking about.There are two types of hemorrhoids: External hemorrhoids are located under the skin around your anus, and can form a small, hard bulge there. They can also cause bleeding, painful swelling, and itching (While rare, bleeding in your poop can be serious—it's just one of the 7 signs of colon cancer in young men).Internal hemorrhoids are found in your rectum—the lowest part of your large intestines—and usually aren’t painful. But they may cause bleeding that shows up in your stool, when you wipe, or in the toilet after you poop. You can also experience a prolapse, or when a … [Read more...] about How to Prevent Hemorrhoids From Ever Popping Up Again
