Straws only take in more air if you're sucking in air after you've sucked up all the liquid. Gulping takes in more air than straws.
Regarding Fleet...it comes in enema form (which would only clean out the lower part of the colon) and oral purgative.
The oral Fleet isn't even a good clean out product from my perspective...the process as well of eating lightly for a few days before and then liquids the ALL DAY of the purge which also takes a whole day is a total waste of time.
As you can see, I have noting good to say about
it...I'd rather be able to eat the day of the purge, start it at 4 or 5 in the afternoon and have it all over by 10:00. At least if one is working it doesn't interfere.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
