You Can Sell Your Poop For $13K A Year To Help Science
In stead of flushing it, donate it. The name of the non-profit company buying your poop is called OPENBIOME. They want to use your poop to create lifesaving fecal transplant treatments for those infected with Clostridium difficile, a bacteria which is highly resistant to antibiotics.
Here comes the but, (no pun intended) in order to get paid according to OpenBiome,
Donors to be near their lab in Medford, Massachusetts to join the registry to donate. Candidates who meet the requirements for age, BMI, and health pre-screening questions are then invited to get blood and stool testing. Donations are then made at least four times per week for 60 days, when each donor is re-evaluated. Once the next round of blood and stool tests come back clear, the previous samples are then converted into capsules and sent to patients across the country.
If you meet those requirements then the going rate is $40 per donation, with a $50 kicker for those who come five days a week. This translates into $250 per week, or $13,000 per year.
