All the people from around the world used to perform their physiological needs in a natural way, meaning in the common squatting position for thousands of years. Constipation, hemorrhoids, intestinal cancer or Crohn’s disease were unfamiliar to them. However, modern technology introduced new way of emptying your intestines, the sitting toilet bowls.
Unfortunately, latest studies have shown evidence that this position is associated with a number of health issues.
1. Modern toilets bring a line of disease
According to a study published in an Israeli magazine called “Journal of Medical Sciences” , the squatting position while emptying your intestines is the principal cause of diseases such as:
- Intestinal inflammations
- Colon cancer
- Pelvic diseases
- Crohn’s disease
- Scientists state
“The frequency of intestinal diseases (hemorrhoids, constipation, appendix inflammation, polyps, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome) is similar in South African white males and in the populations of rich Western countries. In the rural areas with traditional lifestyle, these diseases are very rare or almost unfamiliar”.
2. Modern toilets contribute towards the development of hemorrhoids
Generally, hemorrhoids occur due to an inflamed vein located in the lower part of the colon and the anus. But also, they commonly appear as a result of straining during defecation particularly in people who have a harder stool. The sitting position leads to a weaker and slower defecation. That kind of position also requires a greater straining. On the other hand, emptying the intestines while squatting is much faster and simpler and you almost don’t need any straining.
3. They worsen the intestinal inflammation
Furthermore, this position allows tightening of the Tuborectalis muscle which prevents a total defecation. The content that remains in the intestines can be a good foundation for infection development and can cause inflammation and even cancer. Crohn’s syndrome belongs to the group of IBD – inflammatory disease. Actually, it is an nflammatory autoimmune disease of the intestines, in which the immunological composition of the organism attacks the person’s digestive system.
