Constipation is a standard sickness that's usually outlined in a different way by way of sufferers and physicians. Clinically, constipation happens whilst bowel movement­ ments are tricky or painful. The "normality" of bowel pursuits, when it comes to frequency, varies between members; frequency that's notion by means of one individual to be constipation will be suggested by way of one other to be ordinary and therefore basic.

Un shaded areas are those where surface waters have little or no susceptibility to acidification. The classification is mainly based on bedrock geology. , (1983) using data from EMEP and from Donald & Stoner (in press). Values for the annual mean pH of precipitation vary from year to year. In 1986, for example, values in Scotland were up to O' 2 pH units higher than shown here. The main acidified areas are those on sensitive geology within the pH 4·5 contour but local variations in geology, soils, land-use and altitude limit the accuracy of this generalisation.
