Doctors have found a way to put healthy people's fecal matter into pills that can cure serious gut infections which is a less disgusting way of doing "fecal transplants."
Canadian researchers tried this on 27 patients and cured them all after strong antibiotics failed to help.
It's gross, but half a million Americans get C-diff, infections each year, and about 14,000 die.
Expensive antibiotics can kill C-diff and everything else in your gut, so you need to replace the good bacteria and the normal way to do that is with a transplant.
This new pill makes that transplant unnecessary.
Donor stool, usually from a relative, is processed into a custom pill in the lab to make the treatment possible.
