Have you ever wondered what kind of critters are living in your gut? Me, neither.

These people want to know, though, and for a nominal fee they will analyze your stool sample.

Microbes live in, on and around us all the time, contributing approximately 2 kilograms to our body masses. Most of them are essential for our health and live in equilibrium with our bodies. The vast majority of these microbes live in our guts and breaking this balance may have various consequences such as obesity or inflammatory bowel diseases. Knowing which microbes live in us can lead to better, personalized diets, early diagnosis, and treatment of diseases.

From what I gather, they want to develop a cross sectional profile of who has what microbes and where those people live.

This can be done anonymously aside from basic information like age, height, weight and gender. Or you can give them more information and proudly share your sample results with other participants.

There's a pdf available with more information, if you're interested.

I've never thought about taking a dump and mailing it to someone other than my congressman.

It doesn't say whether they want it with or without the corn...
