Yep. Or Dr. Metchnikoff, who actually won the Nobel for discovering
what white cells do, and who is the founder of the idea that something
in the bowel causes toxicity, disease, and aging in the average person.
To be Devil's Advocate for a moment, there have actually HISTORICALLY
been a few bright people who believed this, but that was a century ago
when biology was considerably less sophisticated. These days, we
realize the enema people have some kind of Freudian development
problem, or perhaps a cleanliness fetish akin to the people who can't
stop washing their hands. If the bowel produced all those toxins, I
think that the average rabbit, which is required to eat its own feces
to get enough B12, would be in real trouble.
