So, "The Human Centipede" was actually part of a groundbreaking study?

It’s bad enough to have a stubborn intestinal infection that might kill you. But it’s way worse to find out the best treatment is essentially swallowing someone else’s shit. Right now, some doctor is probably hopping on a cross-country flight with a turd in a cooler, desperate to save the life of the man at the top of the national feces transplant list. Which is kind of sad because if we were getting a stool transplant, we’d at least want it to be from someone we know. Researchers hope this same treatment will someday be used to treat obesity, which means thin people also apparently poop better than the rest of us.
