Toilet Paper Could Hide a Cancer Warning Sign, Doc Says Published: January 20, 2014

Toilet paper containing red ink could disguise a dangerous medical condition, one doctor believes. reports paper that is decorated with pictures or designs that include red ink could look bloody when wet, and traces of red blood in the toilet are one of the most common signs of colon cancer, colorectal surgeon Dr. Guy Nash of Poole Hospital, in England, wrote in a letter published Jan. 15 in the journal BMJ Case Reports.

"Those patients bleeding will miss real blood, and those not bleeding will report 'blood' in the toilet mistakenly," Nash said.
