Urine for Some Piss-Poor Dentistry


A team of scientists from China have determined that urine could be a source of stem cells from which to grow new teeth.

A professor at University College London, England, has very politely responded that “It is probably one of the worst sources, there are very few cells in the first place and the efficiency of turning them into stem cells is very low. You just wouldn’t do it in this way.”

[I am politely responding here and now that for a professor at an English college, his knowledge of comma splices is surprisingly lacking.]

Nine out of ten dentists are reportedly quite pissed off by the suggestion. Though we’re sure Steve-O from Jackass is delighted to hear that he can kill two birds with one [kidney?] stone, metaphorically speaking.
