Mad Scientist: Fecal transplant is frequently done at the university hospital where I work. It's amazingly effective against c. diff when all high powered antibiotics have failed.The study of the "microbiome" (genetics of all the microbes in and on our bodies) is a very hot field in science research right now.
fasahd: I read an article about a year ago. They were doing fecal transplants with enemas. That seems more practical. Still gross but hey, if you had c. diff. why not? On another note, I guess those two girls with a cup are pretty healthy huh?
Fear the Clam: I'm betting that there's going to be a lot of findings in the next couple of decades about the role of intestinal fauna in health issues./That being said, you're still fat because of too many calories going in and not enough of them burning off.
Jaicu: I thought cranberries cured everything.
