    Okay, this definitely falls into the category of TMI, but for a moment I was so worried I thought I ought to share, anyway.

    I've been consuming a pretty steady diet of the strawberry shakes, and the other day I had a bowel movement that had a decidedly reddish color. When I wiped, the toilet paper looked quite red, and I started to worry that was bleeding from my rectum.

    As I sat there, panicking, it slowly dawned on me that the strawberry shake contains plenty of pink artificial color, and what I was looking at was a combination of FD&C #40 dye and poo!

    You can imagine how much better I felt after I realized I wasn't bleeding to death!

    Well I'm okay now. (Deep breath!)

    I sure felt a lot better when I realized that I was looking at Red dye #40 and poo, not my insides coming out in a bad way!
