When shit from someone else really help

My initial thoughts was that I must have misread fecal into foetal..

But upon reading the entire article, I was quite surprised that severe diarrhea can actually be cured by putting in someone else's faeces into your rectum!

Good bacteria found in the donor's faeces was transferred into the colon of the patient suffering from severe diarrhea.

Weird but true..

Kudos to the doctor that came up with the solution when he ran out of all options.
