No shit, Sherlock! (AKA: Scat got your tongue?)


Once in a great while we discover something so unusual, so undeniably logical, that we must spread the word. Say hello to the squat toilet, brand-named Nature's Platform.

Apparently, the way we poo is bad for our bodies. A western-style toilet is not ergonomic. It bends the colon in a way that increases the risk of many diseases and conditions, including cancer, sexual issues, and incontinence. Good grief! Check out the site for evidence of actual scientific studies on the subject, many, many shitty studies.

These folks in North Carolina have designed a platform from which one might, shall we say, do our duty for Gods, Goddesses, and Country, in a squatting position (only feet touch the floor). What's more, it folds up for people who'd rather risk a kinky colon than squat.

Many other counries have similar notions. Like Japan.

In any case, it could improve muscle tone. Check it out!

I am not going to say that I think you are full of shit, but...

Actually I knew a colonics giver (what does one call one?) who said that this was 100% true.
