Body Waste

Your body has a great way to get rid of the things it doesn't need: poop, urine, vomit, farts, tears, snot, sweat, even the carbon dioxide you exhale. Why does your body get rid of all this stuff? What can you tell about your health based on your body waste?

The guest scientists for "Body Waste" are:

  • Dr. Naya Antink, Pediatrician, Saint Alphonsus Medical Group
  • Dr. Heather Owens, Pediatrician, Saint Alphonsus Medical Group
