Re: How I am going to pay for circumnavigation...

Actually I heard of this treatment though my medical journals. I eat a shake with yogurt and kale every morning- which could lift my offerings to twice a day. 100 dollars a day for eating well. Only I am too old now. Why don't they accept geriatric poop- I think its healthier...filled with fiber.
BTW- no it is not sterilized in any way. They need the microbes, that is why the people get better. I can tell I am getting old- it really sounds disgusting.

It does sound gross. Especially the part about feeding it through a nose hose. I guess if you need it, you need it! At least its not toxic like 99% of the other "cures" we have come up with.

'Watch this space' you may be seeing the start of the next major medical revolution. We are finding problems with gut microflora linked to all sorts of diseases including cancers and autism. Analysis gut flora may become as routine as taking blood samples in the future. It is also why 'real food' is so good for you.

I have worked with individuals who always thought that when they defecated the world ought to pay attention. I guess they probably feel vindicated.

I dont see a quantity bonus? Met a few people who could take over their required production on their own.

Re: How I am going to pay for circumnavigation...

I bet I can pass the poop test. I may be 47 but I poop like a 21 year old By the way how do you catch it or do they sit and wait for it with a baggy or catchers mit?
