otted inside of you. This is why vegetarians have poop that smells much less pungent than that of meat-eaters.Generally, you shouldn be too perturbed about the smell of your poop as this is, after all, a waste product containing eliminated toxins and bacteria. However, if the odor becomes particularly foul this could be a sign that something serious is happening in your gut and consulting a physician might be necessary.
