Can you die from pooing?
Someone told me that you can die from a clot int he brain brought on from constipation. Then again they also say Elvis committed suicide and that's why he was on the toilet when he died. (To make less of a mess).

Yes. You can also die from a rectal prolapse. You literally shit your guts out. Seen it happen, or rather the aftermath.

Re: Can you die from pooing?
yes. don't strain so hard that you feel the blood vessels in your head straining. be careful.

if you find that process is difficult, then eat more fresh fruits and vegetables with lots of fiber. some good foods are apples, grapefruit. one of the best is green or red peppers.

Re: Can you die from pooing?
Some instances of toilet-related deaths are attributed to the drop in blood pressure due to the parasympathetic nervous system during bowel movements. This effect may be magnified by existing circulatory issues. It is further possible that people succumb on the toilet to chronic constipation, because the Valsalva maneuver is often dangerously used to aid in the expulsion of feces from the rectum during a bowel movement. According to Sharon Mantik Lewis, Margaret McLean Heitkemper and Shannon Ruff Dirksen, the “Valsalva maneuver … occurs during straining to pass a hardened stool.” “If defecation is suppressed over long periods, problems can occur, such as constipation or stool impaction. Defecation can be facilitated by the Valsalva maneuver. This maneuver involves contraction of the chest muscles on a closed glottis with simultaneous contraction of the abdominal muscles.”[5] This means that people can die while "straining at stool." In chapter 8 of their Abdominal Emergencies, David Cline and Latha Stead write that "autopsy studies continue to reveal missed bowel obstruction as an unexpected cause of death".[6]

[edit] Historical deaths

King Wenceslaus III of Bohemia was murdered by spear while sitting in the garderobe on August 4, 1306 .[7]

George II of Great Britain died on the toilet on October 25, 1760 from an aortic dissection. According to Horace Walpole's memoirs, King George "rose as usual at six, and drank his chocolate; for all his actions were invariably methodic. A quarter after seven he went into a little closet. His German valet de chambre in waiting heard a noise, and running in, found the King dead on the floor." In falling he had cut his face.[8]

[edit] Possible occurrences
Edmund II of England died of natural causes on November 30, 1016, though some report that he was stabbed in the bowels while attending the outhouse. Similarly, Uesugi Kenshin, a warlord in Japan, died on April 19, 1578 with some reports stating that he was assassinated on the toilet.[9]
Lupe Vélez committed suicide on December 13, 1944, taking an overdose of sleeping pills. She had been dating Harald Maresch, whose child she was carrying. Urban legend has it that she was found dead in her bathroom, becoming sick after taking the pills. This urban legend was popularized by Andy Warhol's 1965 film Lupe and Kenneth Anger's error-riddled book Hollywood Babylon as well as Hollywood Babylon 2. However no contemporary reports mention her dying in this fashion. At the time of her death it was reported by both media and the coroner's report that she was found in her bedroom, as if she were asleep, by her secretary Beulah Kinder.[10]
Lenny Bruce died of a heroin overdose on August 3, 1966 while sitting on the toilet, with his arm tied off.[11]
Elvis Presley was found dead on his bathroom floor on August 16, 1977. According to the medical investigator, Presley had "stumbled or crawled several feet before he died"; he had apparently been using the toilet at the time. Elvis biographer Peter Guralnick writes, "It was certainly possible that he had been taken while 'straining at stool.' "[12]

Re: Can you die from pooing?
Heavy straining may trigger heart attack or stroke. Holding breath and exerting raises the pressure in the chest cavity, preventing the blood from the veins to enter the heart. When the breath is released, the pressure within the chest drops and the blood having being trapped within the veins is quickly propelled through the heart, resulting in increased heart rate and blood pressure. Shortly thereafter, the heart rate reflexively slows down, what may trigger a heart attack in vulnerable persons. By the same mechanism, suddenly increased and then decreased blood flow in the brain may result in stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Additionally, a blood clot may be dislodged from atherosclerotic brain arteries resulting in stroke. These are two causes of not so rare “toilet deaths” mostly occurring in old people with severe atherosclerosis. Squatting position during the bowel movement greatly reduces a need for straining.

Just take it easy.

A male friend of the family almost died from a rectal hemorrhage years ago - it was pretty serious and life threatening at the time it happened. He had a hemorrhoid problem and one of the internal ones was on a large vein or artery, and when it burst - wow, the blood was pouring. They did safe him, tho.
