I'm still Shock that the problem with the instruments not being suited to women's colons is well known yet the report continues to be "incomplete" rather than using the data to insist on researching a better solution.

Women's colons are different - it's one of the reasons stool length is different and constipation varies between the sexes.

Wonder why we are surprised? Even tools made specifically for the female body are not always modified when found to be wanting. How many GPS are still using those metal contraptions to examine women?
