Depends: You will not know if there is a slow, mild bleed. A persistent slow bleed may cause anemia. A large bleed will produce bloody stool, fainting, weakness and pallor. If you have any doubt do a fecal occult blood test, better yet, see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
