They Gave You WHAT for a Cure?

Think about the most disgusting thing you can.  That's right. Doctors are using fecal transplants from healthy people into the guts of those suffering from certain gastrointestinal illnesses like C. difficile, frequently found in hospitals and nursing homes, which causes severe diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.  Doctors have found that it works 90% of the time on this difficult-to-cure illness. Before you start turning up your nose (though an article in the NYT did note that doctors say it looks like "chocolate milk"), pharmaceutical companies are working around the clock to find synthetic drugs and chemicals that mimic it.

Sorry about the chocolate milk.  But you wanted to lose weight in the new year, anyway, right?
