22 pounds of WHAT?

Following our conversation of last evening, as I was flipping the channels today my attention was detained by a program highlighting the values of elimination. As the roundtable of estemed people discussed the importance of cleaning the gi tract, the quote was "at John Wayne's autopsy he was noted to have 22# of feces in his colon and if only he had been subjected to high colonic irrigation he would have lived another 2-3 yrs-"--not counting his terminal lung cancer.

So if the above IS true then maybe it is possible to overeat and not spent an inordinate amount of time in the airport toilet.

I delivered a lady the other day that had about 5lbs of feces delivered before the baby was---total birth weight was reaching 13-14 lbs!
