5Red Stool

Red colored poop could be because of foods like beetroot, red-colored drinks and too many tomatoes. But, when the cause is not food, then you will need to see a doctor because it could be a sign of bleeding. Sometimes it may be as harmless as an anal fissure or it may be hemorrhoids, or ulcerative colitis or a form of cancer.
