Scientists Say This Popular Bathroom Accessory Really Does Help You Poop Better
Using a bathroom stool could help your stool, according to a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology. Products like the Squatty Potty (which are known scientifically as “defecation postural modification devices,” or DPMDs) have in recent years gained a cult following for purportedly helping people relieve themselves in the most natural position: squatting. People can mimic a squat by simply placing their feet on a stool while using the toilet, raising their knees above their hips.

Bowel movement: the push to change the way you poo
Are you sitting comfortably? Many people are not – and they insist that the way we’ve been going to the toilet is all wrong.
