I can just imagine going up to athletes and asking for a donation.
I think there'll be poop banks soon. Like sperm banks, you can read info about each pooper before you choose the perfect donor for you. People will be bidding for celebrity poop on eBay in the hope of receiving the bacteria responsible for talent!
Not for me.
The advent of the bathroom/loo/WC stalkers.
A Swedish researcher of the microbiome, Prof. Fredrik Backhed, tells that in a not too far future there will be cultured bacterias that you´ll be able to take according to your needs based on an evaluation of your microbiome.
I'd much rather take a pill!
I've read about this before. Here's what I don't understand - why don't they just use some super strains of pro-biotics? I've heard also that a lot of pro-biotics don't survive the stomach before they get to the small intestine, but if that's the case, couldn't they administer a pro-biotic cocktail uh, anally? Like via suppository or enema?
Either way, I'd certainly do it! I'm willing to try just about anything to improve ME. Except anything to do with cockroaches. Gotta draw the line somewhere, lol.
There is a great deal to learn about fecal bacteria, but its better to research and learn how things work before tinkering with it, the last thing we need is to make things worse.
A lot of human gut bacteria haven't even been discovered, and most of the good bacteria isn't available to take as a probiotic. We may know it's there, but unless someone is culturing it and putting it into pills, a poop transplant is your best bet!
Hmmm. If this becomes more widely known about, I wonder if people (omg, I just spelled out "poople" by accident, lol) will start asking each other for poop!
People might start stealing athlete's poop and selling it on the black market! Or should I say, brown market!
Bacteria that have been filtered and cleaned – and put into a pill – have been trialled in research but do not have the same effects as fecal transplants. There might be other organisms in fecal matter that are important, too.
How does it work?! Like artificial insemination except the other um entrance?
And do they have to remove your own poop first?
I'd say they're onto something
@veganmua hahahaha!!! that was awesome!!!
Or they might recruit dung beetles to do the dirty work for them...
