Quote of the day

"Transplanting feces from a healthy person into the gut of one who is sick can quickly cure severe intestinal infections caused by a dangerous type of bacteria that antibiotics often cannot control."

Apologies if you were eating when you read that, but apparently it's scientific fact, as reported by the New York Times. All the same, the treatment does smack of something that might have featured in the Day Today report on alternative medicine...
