    There's an article in The Telegraph that mentions this death after FMT. It's mostly an infomercial I think. Plenty of plugs for testing and clinics.

    Kinda shows that, despite advances, we are still barely one step away from the dark ages in our medical knowledge, that we still have to rely on such barbaric sources to try to fix common problems.

    I get it, bacteria are hard to handle and we barely know much about the microbiome so it's hard to determine how to go about differently, but this is still as primitive as it gets.

    The next few years will be fascinating, overturning much of what we think we know and revealing all new truths about ourselves and nature.
