Garbage In, Garbage Out:
Abstract The impact of the insecticide chlorpyrifos (CPF) on the mammalian digestive system has been poorly described. The present study aimed at evaluating the effect of chronic, low-dose exposure to CPF on the composition of the gut microbiota in a Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbial Ecosystem: the SHIME® and in rats. The SHIME® comprises six reactor vessels (stomach to colon). The colonic segments were inoculated with feces from healthy humans. Then, the simulator was exposed to a daily dose of 1 mg of CPF for 30 days.
Cloaca machines were a joke, people.
But perhaps the human race is not yet completely obsolete, for the accuracy of this nutrient-to-poop simulation remains to be properly tested. I for one would like to know how it reacts to 5 pints of Fullers ESB and a hot Lamb Vindaloo.
