A Decline In Constipation?

The use of savage here is not perjorative. . .a common earlier meaning of savage was "undomesticated," although we use the word now almost exclusively as "brutal" or "barbaric."

It seems, in the early 21st century that we no longer have the same national obsession with our bowels as we did earlier, in the 20th century. Are we all now, as the saying goes, "regular?"
