Scientists tell Gawker, "It's probably okay to eat your own poop"
They aren't saying you should
do it. There's really no reason to. (Even fecal transplants are done in a much less disgusting manner.) But if, for whatever reason, you were to ingest your own poop, you probably won't get sick and die from it
. Somebody else's poop, on the other hand, is more risky. So, glad we got that cleared up.
