Jaco asks:

Is it true that floating poop means that I am a methane producer???

Dr. Adams responds:

I really am not sure about how methane and floating poop correlate. However, what I can tell you is that we ALL produce methane to varying degrees. One of the components of our flatulence (farts) is methane. Other components are oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, etc..... The methane is mostly produced by bacteria in our colons that break down food products and sugars than enter the colon.

So you are a methane producer, and anyone with a colon also is a methane producer. The floating poop has more to do with the fat/fiber you eat than the methane that you produce.


Dr. Adams is a resident in the Department of Internal Medicine at North Shore University Hopsital in Manhasset, NY. Got a question for him?

I suppose if you were stranded at sea the best type of poop to have is the floating kind. You could shit yourself a life raft.

Is anybody here a member of "The Royal Order of the Blue Flame"?

BTW, I sure hope TSV gets back from her vacation soon. This place is less lively without her.

I have floating poop when I have taken too much laxative.

Jammin' lo'flo's since 1977.

What about sharting, is there any relation to methanane? I mean if the shart smells something terrible, it's got to have loads of meth in it right?

After having read several of these posts from Dr. Adams, I have a hard time believing he graduated from high school, much less made it through his internship. I hope I never get sick in Manhasset, New York.
