ooking to make some easy money? Well, look no further than your own toilet.
Hospitals in the city of Guangzhou are now offering topay people 500 yuan ($74) for donations of their stool in order to help out with clinical research for an important treatment method where bacteria from healthy individuals is transplanted into patients, helping to reconstruct their “intestinal flora.”
The process is begun with patients swallowing capsules filled with the donated feces.
Unfortunately, this offer is not for everyone. The hospitals are only accepting poo from those who are 25 years old or younger, have not taken any antibiotics in the past three months, and do not have a history of high-risk sexual behavior.
