What about meat building up in John Wayne's colon
Have you heard the John Wayne story?
Apparently when John Wayne died, they found 60-80 lbs of undigested material causing a massive intestinal blockage.
Over the course my vegetarian experiment, many folks have asked me whether or not meat builds up in the colon. The answer, yes and no. Meals high in meat do take between 24-48h to digest and work their way through the GI tract. However, this is a pretty normal transit time. Most meals take this long to get through the GI tract. So thereís nothing all that unusual about meat in this regard.
However, 60-80 lbs of undigested, impacted fecal matter building up in our body over years? Impossible. Have you heard the John Wayne story? This is whatís being used to support that absurd claim.
Apparently when he died, they found 60-80 lbs of undigested material causing a massive intestinal blockage. And apparently this was found during his autopsy. All according to many vegetarian and colon cleansing web sites.
Well, for starters, John Wayne never even had an autopsy. Now, he did have surgery for a cancer-related intestinal blockage about a month before his death. But that had nothing to do with impacted feces or his diet.
Of course, this doesnít prove that no one gets a build up of undigested fecal matter. Indeed, itís possible to get some fecal build up in the colon. Definitely not in multiple pound quantities, accumulation above a small amount would be quite painful. Also, only those in unique circumstances in which genetically susceptible people eat no fiber and take drugs that decrease digestion and GI motility.
So itís not the meat thatís responsible for any small build ups that might occur. Itís whatís missing from the diet. And what drugs folks are taking.
>>> The debate rages on
As I said above, itís quite possible for intelligent people to see the same information and come to different conclusions. So I anticipate that there will be some disagreement even with the general recommendations I make in this article. And thatís ok with me.
Iím not here to convince anyone of anything. Nor am I here to push my way of life onto your dinner table. Rather, Iím simply here to present the information as I see it. And as Iíve experienced it as both an omnivore and a plant-based eater.
In the end, itís up to you to decide how youíll use this info. I just hope you use it wisely.
>>>> So what do you think? Will you give up meat after reading this or will you try to buy hormone-free meats?
Take care of your COLON

It's a little late to be worrying about the Duke's colon. The original poster said she was a vegetarian, so I suspect there is a message in there somewhere.
