Report: Most-Googled health problem in Wisconsin: "color of poop"

MILWAUKEE – Even though cold and flu season is quickly approaching, people in the Dairy State seem to be more concerned about something “more stinky” when it comes to their health. 

Residents in Wisconsin are googling "light colored poop" more than any other symptom over the past year, according to a new report from MedicareHealthPlans.com.

Over the past year, MedicareHealthPlans.com started reviewing the most frequently searched symptoms of the past year on Google Trends.  Next, they listed each symptom, along with similar symptoms, together. Finally, they ran them back through Google Trends to see which states had the highest search volume for each symptom. 

Wisconsin wasn’t the only state concerned with the color of their poop. Residents in South Carolina are googling “dark colored poop” more than any other symptom over the past year.
