The Large Intestine Official:  The Cleaning Crew

Or simply “the cleaner.”  The Large Intestine has one of the simpler jobs yet it’s an incredibly important one.  Have you ever seen the house of a hoarder either in person or on tv?  It’s shocking.  Understanding when to throw something away and when to keep it is a delicate line that you want to ride carefully.
