    I wouldn't recommend it, you can catch all sorts including anthrax, botulisum, tetanus, legionnaires disease and all kinds of worms.

    I think the phrase is, "Eat s*** and die".
    Very often, a small amount of dirt won't kill you. Elephants and some other animals eat dirt in certain places for certain minerals. Still, we are used to much better diets and wouldn't eat much dirt before getting some bad reactions. I think your roommate is displeased with you.

    Ask your doctor or pay a visit to your local citizens advice bureau.

    Doctors say we get sick because we are too clean.
    If we eat a little dirt frequently then our immune system knows how to remove the germs then is not bothered by them.

    Like Mark says,it a dumb move to eat dirt,to many chemicals and germs around.

    When I get a colonoscopy I must completely wash out my insides. Then does the doctor transplant some "flora" back with some fecal stuff from a donor?
    Articles about colonoscopy in Google don't say anything about it.

    Just like tshuck suggested in the wiki.

    Can't be done that way, it's thru your nose down a tube and into your small intestine.

    It's available in Canada and Europe but, not in the U.S.

    It's easy nobody wants to talk about it.

    My Father worked at a Sewer Wast Disposal Plant.

    With that I didn't ever wanted to talk about it.

    Sooooo.... what does your Dad do? Do, what?

    Do,do? Don't know what your talking about:cool:

    Edit: It's all dirt anyway.......eventually.

    Edit:Edit: Energy is neither created or destroyed, simply transformed.

    Edit:Edit:Edit: Before I leave this Thread, my father who I am proud of.....Invented a defuser that increased the removal of 90% of solids in the first stages of treatment.

    He was never recognized nor given any financial remuneration for saving the lives of thousands of people.

    He didn't understand patients nor the fact that other's can and will rob your idea right out from under you. Instead of sharing in the idea and money.

    He's a simple man among many that have contributed to the welfare and lives of many who will never know the truth.

    His defuser was implemented on all major waste facilities in the U.S. and around the world.

    Information can be divided into nice to know and need to know categories. I think your last post definitely is in the nice know category rather than the need to know category:eek:
