While many would cringe at the mere mention of the word poop, it is interesting to know that the appearance of our waste material says a lot about our health. In fact, by carefully observing our poop, we could actually save our lives.

Before flushing the toilet, take a good look at your stool particularly its shade and texture as it can indicate if you’re in good health or not.

While a smooth, soft and sausage-shaped poop indicates that you’re totally fine, a soft and sticky one could mean that you’re suffering from diseases like pancreatitis.

If you see even a hint of blood in our poop, you need to see a doctor immediately as it can possibly be a symptom of cancer, while a greasy and foul-smelling yellow stool means you excreted excess fat as a result of a malabsorption disorder like celiac disease.
