Some days you might find yourself in and out of the toilet, and some days might go by without a single visit for a Number Two. Should this be a cause for concern? We asked five experts if we have to poop every day. Five out of five experts said no.
The so-called New York City "poop train" - a trainload of human waste - finally left the small Alabama town it was stranded in, but the smell of excretion was so strong that Febreze stepped in to freshen up the area.

Scientists often hope to break ground with their research. But a group of Australian researchers would likely be happy with breaking wind.

We live in the dark ages of post-shit cleanup. In a wide world that has long embraced the effectiveness of anus-washing after doing number two, America hangs back, clutching our rolls of Charmin, despite plenty of evidence that it would serve us better to wash instead of wipe. We may be obsessed with sanitation, yet we insist, against reason, on the least-sanitary, least-healthy option for managing our poop.
Commuter newspaper MetroXpress conducted a survey to see how many Danes make grunting noises while taking care of business on the toilet.
