Delaying defecation could be more dangerous than you think
When it comes to doing a number two, lots of people prefer to wait until they're in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of their own home.
Many are willing to spend hours stifling the urge to answer that call of nature.
But delaying defecation could be far more dangerous than you think.
In fact, some experts are warning that, as well as the obvious discomfort, in extreme cases holding a poo in for a lengthy period of time could even result in death.
Those who repeatedly put off going to the toilet to poo on time run the risk of developing a dysfunction in the muscle used for pooing.
