People Are Giving Themselves Fecal Transplants — And Blenders Are Involved

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it one-thousand times, stop putting weird stuff in your butt.

Why today? Apparently, some people think it’s a good idea to give themselves DIY fecal transplants to try to cure a plethora of different diseases. Basically, the instructions say to blend a healthy donor’s poop and then inject it into yourself where the sun doesn’t shine.

Fecal transplants, take feces from a healthy person and implant them into a sick person’s intestinal tract to get some good bacteria in their gut. The procedure can help treat some diseases but it’s still risky enough that the FDA still hasn’t approved it, so that should tell you something.

But who needs to listen to the FDA or doctors when we have access to the Internet? Is it safe? Definitely not. Should you do it? Definitely not. Are some people still going to try it? Definitely.
