    There was something I was listening to last year that mentioned there's an uptick in dangerous fungal infections because the fungi responsible are becoming more heat tolerant due to global warming. Normal body temperature was enough to kill the bad ones, now they are getting better at surviving because they're evolving to match the climate heating up.

    I had it with tonsilitis, it's one of the worst things I've ever experienced. Not only do you have all the joy of tonsilitis, your entire mouth tastes like someone shat in it every time you try to eat or drink. I lost almost stone in a couple of weeks.

    But you're right to ask questions... WTF is he doing becoming a QS?

    Agreed - what a poor life choice (I am a QS)

    Whilst effective, this does carry significant risk.

    Once heard a radio discussion about fecal transplants. Apparently itís a thing

    From what I've read lactobacilli, the bacteria in fermented foods, do survive the stomach and are fairly acid tolerant. I'd imagine they get some protection from being contained in fibre (as in kraut) or protein and fat (as in yoghurt). I suspect Yakult and things like that are a waste of money. There's a lot of bollocks peddled by the crooks of the "wellness" industry but there seems to be reasonably solid and fairly well accepted evidence of a benefit to consuming fermented foods.

    I had cholera donkeys years ago (absolutely not recommended - I was living in a hospital in the middle of an epidemic, 3 patients to each bed, so it was probably more or less inevitable even though we were very cautious) - it took well over 20 years to recover my internal equilibrium which is absolutely fine now thanks for asking

    I asked a doc once what was the traditional treatment for cholera and he said "put them in a hammock with a bucket underneath, keep the hydrated and see how long they can last".

    Mind you, the same doc told me when I had dysentry that the body needed to purge the microbes causing the "gastric distress". When there was as much blood as shit coming out he finally agreed it was time to make it stop. That's what I get for eating peanuts from a field in the arsehole of Africa
    If my post doesnt have a typo, then I have probably been hacked!

    Sterile IV Fluids and canulae and drip sets are a god send sadly cholera usually occurs where these are in short supply. And are quickly used up. Moral if you must get cholera get it at the beginning of an epidemic, or the end when relief has arrived.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.
