I have had IBS essentially all my life. At least as far back as I can remember. This is a very interesting experiement. Hopefully scientists can use this as a springboard for either further research, or ideally, to find a solution. IBS negatively impacts quality of life for many sufferers.
Isn't the flipped experiment a clear indication that FTT (fecal transplant therapy) can help alleviating IBS? If the reverse is true, there might be great value in getting your microbiome fixed/infused by healthy microbiota from donors.
