You're Pooping All Wrong

Why you need a Squatty Potty.
Hey, guys. Guess what. Bohemians poop.
I'm throwing that out there just in case you guys get all like, "what does this have to do with bohemianism?" Bohemians poop too. That is all.
Humans have been squatting to poo since the beginning of time. Even with the invention of the modern toilet, it is still quite common in many countries for people to deuce in a squatting position. And I'm not talking third-world countries either. Developed countries like Japan, China, Greece, Russia, and France use squat toilets. Even though I've never had the privilege of travelling overseas, I've heard the hilarious stories of Americans staring down into one of these low-lying toilets, scratching their heads, wondering what the heck to do next. It may look and feel odd, but those folks are on to something.
Yes, the modern day toilet is very convenient, but it has one major fault; it requires us to sit.
Um, ok. What's wrong with sitting? You ask.
While sitting to do the do may be considered more “civilized”, studies show the natural squat position improves our ability to eliminate. Better elimination may decrease many ailments like bloating, straining, hemorrhoids, and constipation.
