(((Poonurse: I thought about answering this question that it was due to bacteria in your stomach. And then I thought that when you are first born, you don't have that bacteria, which is why babies poop doesn't smell. And then I remembered that baby poop is just horrible. Do you have any insight?)))

Why does poop stink? "Poop stinks as a result of the products of bacterial action. Bacteria produce smelly, sulfur- or nitrogen-rich organic compounds such as indole, skatole, and mercaptans, and the inorganic gas hydrogen sulfide. These are the same compounds that give farts their odor." http://www.heptune.com/poop.html

But say, Doc Adams, as long as you're familiar with poop-stank, and being a real-live doctor and all, could you like give us the lowdown regarding hospital poop, doctor and nurse poop, and things like that? For example, does full-fledged surgeon poop smell worse than nurse practitioner shit? Does hospital food make shit smell more or less rank? Has a patient ever let a really smelly fart while you were examining him or her? Have you ever had to rush to the bathroom due to the New Delhi Trots right in the middle of an examination or procedure? Fill us in, Doc.
Peace in Particulars. TH
