I, can't even believe ther was a study on this.


Researchers say baby poop may be the key to making sausage healthier. Bacteria from the baby waste could potentially transform cured meats like pepperoni and salami into foods that have health benefits similar to probiotic yogurts. The two kinds of bacteria used most often in probiotics are much more abundant in infant feces than adult excrement, so scientists gathered samples from healthy infants and made sausages with it. They found that not only were the sausages better for you, they also tasted just like regular, non-poop sausages. Not sure if they’ll be able to market that to normal consumers, though!
