【獨家‧你篤屎值幾錢?】捐屎月賺四千八 點先可以用屎賺錢?

Published by Next Digital June 2, 2017

三個月前,一則「你好屎」的廣告在網上瘋傳,當中提到只要市民願意捐出自己的「好屎」,每月便可賺取四千八百元的酬勞。計劃由一間叫名為亞洲益菌中心(Asia Microbiota Bank,AMB)的公司推行,專門收集市民的便便,再提煉健康人士糞便中的腸道益菌,用於人類菌群移植治療,幫助患有嚴重腸胃病的病人。

過去五年中,人類菌群移植已廣泛應用於全球各地,以應對廣泛的腸道疾病,而AMB就負責向醫生提供腸道益菌,作為艱難梭菌感染(CDI)、克隆氏症、炎性腸病(Crohn’s Disease,Ulcerative Colitis),腸易激綜合症和其他慢性消化系統疾病的治療方法。

中心創辦人之一Jon透過,短短數月,已接獲上萬名港人申請。可是,想要成為捐糞者,其實毫不容易,萬多位申請人之中,只有十五位能「脫穎而出」。當中篩選的過程十分嚴謹,有意捐便便的人,首先要在網上填寫個人基本資料及包括五十條問題的健康問卷,其後AMB會抽出數百人進行面試,以全面了解捐贈人選的身體狀況、生活習慣、家族病歷等,再進行血液、尿液及糞便檢驗。經過重重關卡後,只有少於5%的人能成為合資格捐糞者。

即使進行這樣複雜的篩選,需要極高成本,Jon也表示,他們必須確保捐糞者必須完全健康,其便便才可用於糞便益菌移植術:「要確保所有捐糞者沒有任何傳染病,也沒有其他具傳染性的健康問題,不會把病帶給病人。」

會把病帶給病人。Jon透露,十五名合資格的捐糞者,年齡介乎二十多歲至四十多歲,有不同國藉的人,也有家庭主婦、有侍應、專業人士等。這些人都有共同特質,就是全部人都生活規律、作息定時、注意均衡飲食、經常運動。合資格者要承諾於三個月內,每周捐糞至少三次,每次捐糞可得二百元。
