Why is there no warning about blueberry poop?

Iím changing what I eat and with this change comes fruits and vegetables. My body had no idea most of these things existed or could be consumed in current quantities. My latest discovery is what blueberries do to the color of poop.

Iím at the age where any changes to any functionality make me think the end is near. My heart canít take it. They put dumb warnings on everything we buy, like hair dryers, ďDonít plug the dryer in and jump in a tub full of water and splash around waiting for the tingle.Ē Blueberries need a warning, like ďEating in large quantities will make your poop look like deathís trying to come out your butt. Chill, take a photo and share on Twitter. #everyoneiknowistravelingwhilei sitandpoop.Ē

Yes, my body is a wonderland.

Ohh, Hifi! Just so you know, pepto bismol will turn it black, and beets will make it look like you’re bleeding. I don’t want you to get scared! And asparagus will make your pee stink really bad. . .

When I taught elementary, I had kids research the weird and embarrassing things our bodies do- like fart, belch, stinky sweat, and the asparagus effect.

And green jello that you eat when foods are limited because you're preping for THAT procedure will surprise you.

Thank you. I really needed a good laugh.

went full on panic mode after I made him eat beets. Yup, he thought the end was near. I managed to calm him down before he checked himself into hospice.

Exactly how many blueberries did you eat?

I eat blueberries regularly and have never had "blueberry poop."

Picking season is here in Little Rhody! We picked 2 huge buckets. Yum. One for our B and B on the cape and one for us. Froze a whole big bag. Love bringing those out in February...

I teach middle school, you better believe I'm going to laugh about that.

Also, Fruit Loops will turn your poop green, but that's probably not on the diet menu.

I have never had that many blueberries- I've eaten my "crap load" of other things, but not blueberries. Good to know!

I remember after my first kid had a lot of cake/frosting for the first time and his poop was some crazy color and I was freaking out.

I had this happen except the first kid was maybe a month old and started pooping bright blue poop. She was nursing and wasnít on real food yet, I hadnít eaten anything blue. We had an emergency drís appointment....they had no clue. I went to my parents house and was telling my mom about it when my dad pulled out a birthday cake with blue frosting and asked if the color was similar. Turns out my dad thought I was depriving the baby by limiting her diet to breastmilk and had decided to give her some frosting for dessert.

The good thing about it is I can always blame my dad when she does stupid stuff. Iím sure she would have turned out even better if it wasnít for all the sugar my dad fed her as a baby behind my back

omgosh, Ima! I would have been freaking! You can definitely blame him for years to come on whatever she does! My kid was a year old at least! (It was his first birthday cake)

I guess I've never eaten a 'crapload' of blueberries before! I didn't know that they had any effect on poop! You learn something new every day!

I had been eating them for snacks with strawberries for several days. I had to look it up online to verify.

As others mentioned, you should eat some beets for a super fun poo experience. Good on you for incorporating more produce into your diet.
