Feces in, feces out

We have all heard about donating inner organs, blood or semen. Now for something I never heard about before, donating feces. New research shows that rectal injection of feces from a healthy person cures 75% of patients experiencing intestinal trouble caused by certain, often resistant, bacteria. These troubles often occur after antibiotics treatment has knocked out the naturally occuring intestinal bacteria, thus leaving room for harmful bacteria to grow. By injecting feces the naturally occuring intestinal bacteria are reintroduced to the system and can often drastically decrease the number of harmful bacteria.The treatment seems a little disturbing, but effective.
