snopes page on john wayne

According to this page, even a pound (or less, maybe) would cause extreme pain and rectal bleeding. I've watched those informercials and seen these claims in other places...I think it's a lot of hooey to sell products. Some of them clain 10, 20, 40 pounds is stuck in there. Ha! I wonder if this claim wasn't started with the whole John Wayne and Elvis Presley rumors - an anti-fat, anti-beef slur, maybe, that someone turned into profit. Just another lose weight quick scheme, that's my vote. My friend runs a health food store - he sells colon cleanse products but he has never heard of it being a problem, and says that much impacted matter would have killed you long ago. His dad's a holistic dr. I know, FOAF. Still, I say hooey.
