Thanks Associated Press for this gem! I had to read this over and over to let it sink in.

For years, doctors have known that taking antibiotics sometimes kills off the good bacteria in your body (especially your stomach and digestive tract). That good bacteria is there to protect you, but when it is gone you are vulnerable to all kinds of problems.

Leave it to a doctor at the University of Calgary to find a fix. The stool pill contains poop from a healthy donor and it has a hefty amount of good bacteria. Yes, you are taking a poop pill, but it's better than having a tube stuck down your throat so poop can be injected into your stomach! Seriously, that was the old procedure.

Luckily, the pill is triple walled so it cannot break until it hits your stomach acid. They thought of everything.
