Is there a day in the US that more sweets are consumed by kids than Halloween? Imagine all the resulting microbiome effects...the sugar loving microbes LIVE for this day. They are having a big party, while all the other bacteria are sitting around rolling their eyes
The first fecal transplantation case that I reviewed involved a gentleman who was very ill with a common antibiotic-induced colon condition called C. difficile colitis. Despite multiple trials of treatment with the usual medications, his condition worsened. He was advised to undergo a fecal transplant, whereby stool from a healthy donor is "transplanted" into the recipient's intestines. He refused. This was an educated man, an attorney, but he just couldn't get past the idea of someone else's poop inside him. Only after his condition substantially deteriorated to the point of being admitted to the ICU did he agree to the simple procedure. He was discharged home, asymptomatic, within 3 days.
