Did you know that your poop could be profitable? $13,000 profitable? Well, according to a recent article, one Medford-based company is willing to pay people $250.00 each week for their stool samples. The company’s name is OpenBiome and they are focused on helping more than 500,000 individuals each year who suffer from C. difficile infections which cause symptoms such as severe diarrhea, nausea, loss of appetite, and in a large number of cases even death. Since antibiotics do not work for 1 in 5 of the infected individuals another type of treatment was developed, fecal transplantation.
OpenBiome’s campaign: Give a Sh!t is reaching out to residents in the Medford area asking for help to build up their Stool Donor Registry. Here are 4 reasons you should consider:
1. Helping Save Lives: your donation is helping treat thousands of patients
2. Make up to $250 per week: $40 per sample plus added bonuses
3. Earn prizes: win various competitions for largest donations
4. Free drinks: when you drop off your stool you get to help yourself to a beverage
