You mentioned criticism some people had about wearing safety belts in their autos. It is reported that safety belts are harmful to abdominal stomas. You have asked my opinion; it is simple and straightforward.
I would rather treat an injured stoma in a live patient than look at a healthy stoma in a dead one. There is no question in my mind about the value of safety belts in autos. Anyone arguing that such a belt should not be worn is making an excuse, not giving a reason. Inevitably, the failure to wear a safety belt is sheer laziness and stupidity. Any further discussion of the matter is irrelevant.
