Faecal transplants, which work by taking escrement out of a healthy person and inserting in the intestines of someone ill, work better than antibiotics. Despite the published case reports, the "Food and Drug Administration, however, is clearly concerned about potential risks."
Research on the trillions of bacteria that live on and in our bodies is flourishing. Our skin, mouths, colons, lungs, and many other sites play host to these bugs, which in turn contribute to our health. These findings have supported a view of the body as an ecosystem, in which human and bacterial cells continually interact. Various diseases, from inflammatory bowel disease to type 2 diabetes, have been linked to reduced diversity in the ecosystem or other anomalies in the balance of bugs. There has been a wealth of association, a fascination with pattern-finding, and an exuberance toward new data not unusual for a fast-emerging field.
