Lego is probably one of the world's favorite toys.
Originally in Denmark in 1934, these pieces of square-shaped building block toys won popularity among adults and children. You can actually build castles, robots, cars and even animal figures by coinciding with plastic bricks.
Although many of us are fascinating by how Lego works, some parents are scared that their children could swallow the small blocks accidentally. Children's Hospital St. Louis that children between six months and four years have the highest potential to swallow non-food items.
The common issue among parents motivated a group of six researchers to maintain a study to see how long it would take when someone throws the Lego item accidentally. And yes, the scientific method used in the study could be scandalous and dangerous.
To do this, scientists are deliberately swallowing Lego's purpose. They also developed their own metrics of the name Stool Hardness and Transit (Shat) and the Score Found and Time Completed (Fart).
The Shat score assessed the consistency or changes in the stool while the Fart score recorded the number of days. Based on the Fart score, only an average of 1.7 days before the Lego can pass through the intestines; while the Shat score did not show any changes in the consistency of their stool.
Surprisingly, one out of five physicians failed to find the toy in his stool.
They also compared the results in the Shat and Fart scores to see if bright sewage was causing faster recovery but they did not have a relationship.
Although none of the researchers felt any complications during the experiment or after the experiment, Grace Leo, one of the authors of the report reminded parents that they should not repeat this at home.
