Patient : What could be causing my family of four to have unusual smelling bowel movements? It is the same smell for all 4 of us regardless of what we eat. The only thing that we all have in common diet wise is our water. We recently moved to a new house, and our water is from a private well. I am assuming it is the water that is causing our bowel issues, but am curious about what specifically could be responsible. Bacteria? Algae?
