Here’s How To Spot If Your Poo Is Healthy Or Not

A full half of adults in the UK don’t know how to tell if their poop is healthy or not. That’s according to Bupa’s new Wellbeing Index, which surveyed 8,000 people about their health and well-being – including what’s going on in their toilet.

This lack of awareness is worrying because abnormalities in your feces can be an early sign of colon cancer. However, the survey found that many adults aren’t sure what to look for in terms of the color or consistency of their stool.

Over a third of colorectal cancer patients are first diagnosed in a hospital emergency room, and while the risk of developing colorectal cancer increases with age, 24% of people over the age of 55 never check the appearance of their bowel movements. More than a million people invited to colorectal cancer screening in the past two and a half years have not accepted the invitation within six months.

Bupa’s results come as presenter and author Dame Deborah James, aka Bowelbabe on social media, has stepped up her colon cancer awareness campaign.
