The Power Of Poo
Monday, sbs, 9.40pm
You might rather do anything other than watch a TV show about poo, but you’ll be rewarded if you embrace the brown stuff with this compelling Canadian documentary. Microbiologist Dr Jennifer Gardy will make you think twice about pressing the flush button after you discover her scientific research, as she busts myths and gets to the bottom of it all. Worldwide, we produce 9 billion kgs of poop, but we rarely talk about it. Is poo scientific gold? Do colon cleanses really improve your health? Do toilets spray fecal bacteria all over the bathroom? You might be surprised by the answers Gardy finds in this thoughtful, humorous and not at all smelly special.
