In a time when there's such a strong disconnect between medical science and the field, human fecal matter has managed to generate an unprecedented excitement progressing with remarkable speed.
"Patient 1 developed right side weakness from the recurrence of the brain tumor. Patient 1 consented to an untried and unproven treatment (surgical removal of the tumor with implantation of live bowel bacteria into the brain) to be preformed by MD 1 and MD 2"
Sounds as though these doctors were lured by the glamour associated with crap and the patients were desperate enough to oblige. Unfortunately, the experiment resulted in the death of at least two of the three patients.
At the same time, others are feverishly working on an oral implentation of this new wonder drug:
"The technology to encapsulate live bacteria in a pill has already been developed by the probiotics industry, and Allen-Vercoe says early-stage efforts to convert the Robogut’s repoopulate mix into a pill by freeze-drying are promising. She has “no doubt” they will eventually be able to package these targeted microbial ecosystem therapeutics in an oral form."
"More than simply a new probiotic treatment, this emerging paradigm in medicine may lead to novel strategies in treating and managing a wide variety of human diseases."
Many questions remain. However, all indications point to a turd in our future. It will not be called a turd. It may not look or smell like a turd. Nonetheless, it will be a turd. Preparing for a shit tsunami may become necessary and perhaps sooner rather than later?
