Stalin Had A Secret Lab That Analysed World Leader’s Poop

Jeff Glennon | March 30th, 2019

Mao Zedong once famously shouted at Josef Stalin at his only meeting in Moscow that he was here for more than just eating and shitting. Stalin had kept him waiting for days in a bid to show him who the real boss was. However, it appears that records have come out that Stalin was indeed more interested in the leader’s inner workings than he let on. In fact, Stalin had a secret lab that was dedicated to analyzing a world leader’s poop.

A Soviet agent by the name of Ivor Atamanenko has told the world how he was ordered by Stalin to follow Mao around and keep him well fed, collecting his excrement on a daily basis to be studied. The Russian scientists decided to analyze his poop to determine Mao’s state of mind. They were searching for chemicals that at the time it was believed told a person type of behavior or traits. It sounds completely crazy but there had been researching done into looking the chemicals found in someone’s poo and linking it to their mental state.

And this was not something Stalin reserved for Mao, any world leader who visited Russia at the time would have been subject to the infamous poop test. The researchers believed that a high level of brain chemicals such as amino acid tryptophan was a sign that someone would be calm and easy to deal with. Whereas if the levels were low then that would mean the opposite – there was also the level of potassium. If your potassium levels were low then it was thought you would be more nervous and could even be suffering from insomnia.

Nobody really knows the results of all these tests Stalin ordered on world leader’s poop and it is doubtful that any of the true documentation will ever surface. During the era of the soviet union and Stalin, there were many different fields of science that were followed which look strange now that we look back. It just goes to show how much of the science field was controlled by the political struggles of the time.
