Going to the bathroom is a natural part of our lives. And though poop is considered waste matter, it's much more than just parts of food that our bodies don't use. Poop has many marvelous uses such as powering our cars, heating our homes, and growing our crops. Read on to learn more about this misunderstood substance. About 75% of poop is water. The rest is made up of living and dead bacteria, undigested bits of food, and other bodily substances like mucus. It's important to dispose of dog waste correctly because it may contain Toxocara cams (roundworm), which can cause blindness in humans. At $54,000 per pound, panda poop tea is the world's most expensive tea. Fertilize your garden by spreading manure and compost on your plants.
