Sell Your Poop For $13,000 A Year…And Help The Unwell!

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

 

I won’t go into too much detail with all of this (for obvious reasons), but it turns out that a non- profit company called OpenBiome is offering people money for their stools (poop). The reason for this is that one or two unlucky (but highly valued) scientists are able to take lifesaving fecal transplants for those infected with Clostridium Difficile, a bacteria that is very difficult to kill with antibiotics.

The going rate is $40 per donation, as well as an extra $50 dollars if people come 5 days a week. The only downside, you have to live in Medford, Massachusetts to redeem this…bit of an anti- climax hey, sorry!
