Asparagus is Amazing!

When I was in High School I had a teach who had an unusual saying. He would say “that is like sausage through a duck!” I didn’t know what he was talking about at first so one day I asked what that saying meant. He explained that sausage passes right through a duck, they can not digest it and apparently their little bodies kick it right out the back-end, so to speak. He then explained that as a youth he took a piece of sausage and attached it to a string then fed it to several ducks in a row stringing them together like a pearl necklace. This got me thinking, Is there anything like that with humans? While I have not done any research I believe there has to be! Take Asparagus for example? Every time I eat it I am amazed how quickly you know that you have eaten it. You know what I’m talking about? It goes right to the exit, without a stop! That is amazing how all the organs in your body made to filter and breakdown food and drinks and none of them stand a chance against those little green stocks! While it doesn’t reach the level of sausage through a duck, I wonder if there is some practical use in medicine for this capability? Could you imagine medicines that could pass through you that quick. Maybe I can get a government grant to study it. It is far more practical than studying snail sex!
