HARFOLD, Vt. - Harfold State College released a study this week that maintains that injecting the feces of a healthy person into another person suffering from a rare intestinal ailment may actually help the person kick the bug.
Clostridium difficile bacteria knocks off about 14,000 every year, as if we needed yet another whacky-ass ailment to scare us into never leaving the house.
Of 16 patients suffering from this ailment, 15 were cured after having healthy (healthy?) feces pumped into their gut.
The med students at Harfold are not, however, as creative as their Harfold peers in meteorology and food science had originally thought. The 4th-century Chinese were said to injest feces in order to combat food poisoning.
Like that was a good idea.
