Here at Merjeo, I try to post interesting things that are funny, entertaining, and head scratching, not necessarily in this order.
I try to keep things as clean as possible. I’m getting ready to talk about a topic that’s a little gross, and distasteful. I’ll try to make it as clean as I can.
Colon Cancer – No. 1 Cancer for men
While breast cancer is the leading cancer among women, colon cancer is the leading among men. I’m not saying that women don’t get colon cancer. They do. But breast cancer occurs more, and men don’t have to worry about breast cancer.
So don’t worry, Caitlyn Jenner. You’re safe. You may think you’re a woman, but I’d be very surprised if you get breast cancer.
But let’s get serious. A routine visit to a Proctologist every other year is a very smart thing to do, for both men and women. In case familiar with a Proctologist, it’s a butt doctor. He or she will perform routine tests and ask you to provide specimen, which is no fun. Then, the doctor will tell you to look at your stool every time you have a bowel movement.
Enough of this. I assume you know that your stool is your poop. So now, I can get on with my story.
Why my stool was green
Two weeks ago, I went to that private room in my house to take care of business, and noticed that my stool was green.
Experts will tell you this is caused from bile. It takes some time for the bile to degrade and turn brown in the intestine. If the time it takes is short, the stool remains green colored. This is why diarrhea is often green. Green stools may be a normal.
It can also be caused by eating green vegetables, especially spinach, collard greens and turnip greens.
I didn’t worry about it, and just forgot about it. A few days later, I had a windfall. I received a large amount of money at one time.
