Ever wonder what our bodies do when we aren't looking?


Found this interesting for some reason. Surprising and a little gross as well.
www.medicaldaily.com...


Individual cells have a finite lifespan, which means when they die the body replaces their absence with new cells. With 50 to 75 trillion cells in every body, a constant cycle of death and renewal are taking place throughout your hair, nails, and skin.

The Body Produces The Following Quantities In One Year:

Hair: 6 in.

Nails: 1.5 in.

Skin: 8.8 lbs.

Tears: 22 gal.

Sweat: 60 gal.

Saliva: 96 gal.

Urine: 133 gal.

Poop: 360 lbs.

Now I know many here have said that I was full of crap on many occasions and now I can honestly reply with "Yup!"

After stepping away for a coffee and coming back to the thread I took another look at the numbers and something doesn't make sense. An average of 1lb of poop per day? This has to be wrong.

Not trying to be gross and having never actually crapped on a scale I can honestly say that 1lb seems on the low side to me. Just the regular morning 3 coiler is definitely well over a pound. It has to be. We eat more than a pound of food a day (some of us) so what happens with that?

My wife says that I can't defecate on the bathroom scale tomorow so I guess I'll never be able to prove it. But I know.

Now did someone weigh all their excrement to find this out?

Poop on a scale for 24 hours x 365 =

How else would you do it?

Hospitals do it all the time for patient health records.

But at home? Check my OP edit.

You can do that if you doubt the numbers. I will just take their word for it.
A pound a day,,,,,,sounds reasonable...

Not too sure. 1lb is just not that much for the consistency, thickness...Oh hell, how did I get here?


I'm gonna quit while I'm behind...Damn, there I go again...


I have to end this!

Damn...I can't stop!

I don't typically poop everyday and when I do it's not THAT much so I think it's a case of averages. While some like you apparently poop like crazy others like me do not, thus it evens out to that. I was thinking that average was a bit much myself basing it off myself.

If you use Restasis it can significantly improve your natural tear making.

If you use ATS without adblock chances are you've seen a Restasis commercial

Cool picture of a dust mite. It's a lowly job, but someone has to eat it.

You aren't considering the water we expel, much of our food is water. We loose most of this through breathing, sweating, respiration of skin, peeing, and some through poop.

Now, if we also make a lot of byproducts that need to be expelled. A lot of organs, including our skin, is involved in excreting these byproducts. Even our sinuses secrete stuff that needs to go. Our bodies are extremely complex, they make thousands of enzymes and hormones that are necessary to digest the nutrients. When you mix up the food chemistry too much we secrete enzymes inappropriately which increases our byproducts and causes waste.

We need to simplify our foods, not make them more complex. A roast does not need a bunch of chemistry added to it, salt, pepper, and a little garlic salt and some onions. The onions and garlic added are to help keep the blood from sticking together from possible antigens to the beef. This happens in some of the A, B, and AB type bloods. O's don't need the extra sulfur compounds so much. You could also use salicates I suppose, some foods contain these or you could just take an aspirin once in a while. Otherwise you can get a headache if you can't keep the blood from sticking
