Come join Persephone Biome in the fight against cancer by donating your poop sample to Poop For The Cure

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.
  • How can we know what is in a person’s gut? Poop! By examining stool samples, we can develop ways to fight cancer.
