Well of course not as a snack or food or something pleasant to see. The whole discourse about poop is always disgusting for some people, i don't understand why. It's a normal thing. When someone says he/she is having a hard time pooping, why should it be disgusting? Aren't you supposed to be worried for them and probably present them with things that could relieve their pooping problem? It's just that when people hear the word poop, the initial reaction is always "ew. you're so disgusting" without even listening to what the person would have to say.
I don't know. I'm a microbiologist. We test for bacteria present in poop, like E.coli, Salmonella, parasites. I mean, there is more to poop that just being disgusting.
