    Interesting and funny article. I won't be "whipping up an enema of my freinds stool" for sure. Lol.

    "Brown cross" ☺

    Just out of curiousity. I wonder these are gluten free. ☺

    OpenBiome are now producing/supplying their poop-pills. Only for C-diff so far and mostly just for research, but it's a big step forward in my view. With ME/CFS being linked with the gut I do wonder if it would be possible for someone to setup a trial of these pills to see if they help people with ME/CFS.

    I'd definitely like to get my hands on some poop pills. How long before you can get this stuff on ebay?

    May never happen. Poop classed as drug by FDA...

    Who knew a few years ago that healthy person crap would soon become a highly prized commodity.

    Yes indeed. A colleague and I, who always had to rush to the loo before blood-doning, joked about being able to donate what we had just excreted, viz. 'shit-doning', never dreaming that it would actually come to pass (excuse the pun). :lol:
