Good article here about 5 dangerous and fraudulent health fads you should avoid. It’s written by a doctor who argues that coffee will do you more good if you drink it than if you spray it up your colon.
I couldn’t agree more. I was in a health food store once and a clerk was showing me scary pictures and explaining that a person’s intestines become clogged with waste, kind of like the drain in my bathroom sink, and must be periodically flushed. I disagreed.
I had recently observed a colonoscopy of an elderly person and watched their intestines on TV. This person had great-looking intestines, even though they’d had many decades to build up sludge.
I totally discount the whole myth about the normal digestive system not being able to take care of its business. And if you ever come to my house for coffee, you need not worry about where it’s been.
