    There Are Now Pills Made From Poop To Cure Infections

    Yes, you read that correctly. Pills. Made. From. Poop.

    See, I'm not lying.

    For sufferers of Clostridium difficile, which causes "bloating and diarrhea, with abdominal pain," the pill is a godsend.

    A godsend made from other people's poop, usually a relative.

    The healthy stool "is processed in the lab to take out food and extract the bacteria and clean it."

    "It takes 24 to 34 capsules to fit the bacteria needed for a treatment, and patients down them in one sitting."

    I'm guessing the pills should be washed down with a steaming cup of Kopi Luwak coffee. You know, the one made from civet cat droppings.

    Have a good weekend. Okay, byeeeee!
