Cancer and Poop, what is the connection?

Cancer drugs can work better or worse depending on the bacteria in a person’s gut.

Helpful bacteria can help the immune system destroy cancer cells.

Harmful bacteria can cause inflammation that lowers the immune system’s ability to fight cancer.

“I felt privileged to participate in your study. I have appendix cancer that is not very common and felt if they were able to use these donations to crack some of the codes needed to find what may cause certain cancers or lead cures for cancer. The design of your kit, the delivery and follow up deserve a lot of credit for the great job you did. I was impressed with the care you all showed. I am not a scientist or smart researcher, but you all made me feel appreciated for being a part of this research.“
