Swapping Germs to Beat C. diff?

Maryn McKenna has a great new post up on Scientific American, "Swapping Germs," about Clostridium difficile, or C. diff colitis. She talks about fecal transplants, effective but rarely used therapy, given the "ick" factor.

Often having a different perspective, I have added my own, slightly different take on fecal transplants.

Hope we'll have an interesting conversation and stimulate progress in finding treatments!
