    Garbage "science." Autism is NOT a disease! And this quickly turned into an ad for "gut health." Run, people!

    I wonder what kind of microbes the Chinese have? Maybe further test will reveal they have microbes that crave Dogs, Cats and Bats.

    I was ok until the poop part and then I saw Bill and Melinda Gates name. Not fond of those two AT ALL. Other than that it was very interesting.

    I cannot have poop transplanted into me, for I have had my appendix removed. What should I do to erase depression and start eating healthy? I CANT HAVE HEALTHY POOP TRANSPLANTED

    This explains why I'm thin as f*ck and still don't feel like eating or even felt like eating something. An empty stomach and feeling empty, sure. But no appetite.I actually recently noticed this before I saw this video. Having remembered hearing something about the many bacteria and stuff in your guts are coexist with us, and which are part of the reason why a balanced diet is important. I wonder how long it takes to regrow these bacteria..Need this to happen fast before I need a sh!t transplant. Anything but that.
