Poop bank

I've heard of blood banks, sperm banks, eye banks... but poop banks?

A small article in a small newspaper caught my attention. After reading it, I thought it might be a hoax. [Kind of like a load of bullshit]

But I googled it and found enough information to believe it's true.

The newspaper article stated poop banks were begun in the Netherlands to combat the serious and hard to fight infection c.difficile, usually contracted when the patient has undergone strong doses of antibiotics. [The antibiotics muck up the intestinal flora, resulting in severe diarrhea.]

A cure is a direct transplant of healthy feces. Hence the need for a poop bank.

Yeah, this is a crappy subject, and it raises all kinds of interesting questions. Which I won't go into right now.

Other countries, including Canada, have begun their own poop banks. Of course, in America donors get paid.[No comment except I bet their poop banks are flourishing.] And there they are called stool banks.

It won't be long before poop, stool, and feces are no longer associated with the name of these banks. I mean, where is the dignity?

And then we can reserve the words poop, crap, and shit to the banks that store [and steal] our money.
