How many pounds of feces are in the human body?
The average person can have between 4-25 pounds of "built-up" intestinal matter in their colon- factors effecting this number are your metabolism, diet, genetics and rate of bowel movements. The general term for feces stuck in the human body is mucoid crap.
A doctor can remove some of this build-up with a colon cleansing.

What gives feces a dark color is bile salts that are excreted into the small intestine from the gallbladder, and when there is an obstruction in the pathway of these salts com…ing out of the gallbladder - like a gall stone for example- feces lose the dark color and become colorless or grayish.
Ant feces are no more toxic to humans than any other fecal matter. Rarely, individuals may be sensitive to proteins in ant droppings, but the volume is so small that few peopl…e will encounter any large amount.
It is mostly eliminated waste that is deprived of most nutrients and energy (e.g., protein, fat, vitamins and carbohydrates) that your body has absorbed and used during the di…gestive process. It is made up of digested and also undigested food with 67% solid material. The other 33-34% is comprised of liquids that have not been absorbed. Some of the solids are also unused fats, undigested food particles, roughage, and fiber. It has an odor because of the breakdown of the contents (by the natural "good" bacteria in your digestive system which are also present in the feces) which creates organic compounds rich in nitrogen and sulfur and gasses such as hydrogen sulfide, all of which are odorous. It is usually colored brown because of the bilirubin it contains which is a yellow liquid produced by the body and used in digestion of fats which, when mixed with the iron from foods, other waste materials and the broken down food particles, creates the mostly brown color. It comes out of your digestive tract after the useful parts have been extracted and it has been moved completely through the bowels with peristaltic action to the rectal area where it can then be evacuated from the anus. Other terms for feces are poop, excrement, turds, caca, stool, BM, or poo but most of these are crude and some are even considered vulgar. There can also be "bad" bacteria in feces which is why you are always told to wash your hands after using the restroom. food.

There can be a number of causes of having blood in the faeces, and most of them are not serious. It can just mean that there are cuts or lesions in the rectum, which are re-op…ened whenever faeces is passed and which can easily be treated with ointment. Other causes can be just small cysts or ulcers in the large intestine, which can usually be dealt with by medication, or if it's just a one-off occurrance, that the faeces contained something sharp like a bit of nutshell that grazed the bowel wall, causing a cut. But it CAN in some cases be a sign of bowel cancer, or also in men of prostate cancer. Bowel cancer is by no means necessarily terminal- it's a very slow-developing form of cancer and responds readily to treatment. If caught early enough, it can be completely cured by surgery, although in some more advanced cases follow-up chemotherapy may be necessary too. It is only life-threatening if allowed to develop up until a late stage, but long before this the patient may experience other symptoms such as weight loss, diahorrea, and a bloated feeling in the abdomen. if you are getting blood in your faeces regularly, it's best to get it checked out (for peace of mind if for nothing else), but whatever you do don't worry about it- it's probably nothing serious, and in the unlikely event of it being a cancer of some sort, the chances are it'll be curable.
Yes, human fecal matter is toxic. That does not mean that if you ate a spoonful it would kill you immediately. However our fecal matter is full of chemicals such that our bodi…es chose not to absorb. If it were suitable for promoting growth, cellular reproduction or repair, your body would use it.
Consistency of feces depends on: a. Nature of diet 1. rancid food (diarrhea) - very soft and watery stool 2.
