Japanese scientists have recently discovered that hydrogen sulfide (H2S) — the chemical responsible for such malodorous phenomena as human flatulence, bad breath and rotten eggs — can be used to efficiently convert stem cells from human teeth into liver cells. While the fetid chemical compound is produced in small quantities by the human body for use in a variety of biological signaling mechanisms, at high concentrations it is highly poisonous and extremely flammable. A team...
