Comment: I NEED to know whether or not the following statement is true:
"The typical American male, aged fifty, has five pounds of undigested red
meat in his colon." I've done a fair amount of Googling and I keep coming
up with different amounts, but every site I've found that purports this
claim is either trying to sell me a colonoscopy or trying to get me to
financially back PETA, so that's why I'm curious. I read your article
about the forty pounds in Elvis' colon and how that didn't seem likely,
but I would really appreciate a definitive answer, preferrably from a
reputable medical source.
