Urine can Grow another Set of Teeth in Your Mouth

teeth from urine

Those toothless individuals especially the old ones don’t need to worry anymore for losing your teeth forever because it will replace with new set of teeth that grown back in your gum.

Yes, a scientist discovered that human urine can make your toothless gum regrow a new set of teeth replacing those falling old teeth. It is not about putting your urine in a cup and draw a drink or bathing your gum with those salty liquid excreted from your body.

The real score is a team of scientists at the Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health decided to take inspiration from Duanqing Pei, a professor of stem cell biology at the research institute, took epithelial cells found in urine and converted them into teeth.

“We have a long-running interest in tooth formation,” Pei told ABC News. “We want to use somebody’s own cells to generate a tooth.” Pei added that if the cells came from somewhere else, they could be rejected by the host’s body.

Don’t expect your urine to just crystallize into a new set of dentures though. Pei and his colleagues needed to first convert the epithelial cells into induced pluripotent stem cells, iPS cells for short. iPS cells can be grown into many different types of tissues, and it’s those iPS cells that eventually turn into new teeth.

But stem cell technology became the center of controversy years before because it was involved with moral value by allowing cell generation with a touch from human hand instead of nature’s way of finding solution to physical change.

Cremation in South Korea – From Ashes to Beads

South Koreans are now changing the culture of the dead. Instead of burying the dead in a cemetery, they are now accepting cremation: turning the dead body into ashes. Much more, making it a difference, turning the ashes into gem-like beads. Making it bizarre transformation of culture that used to be a natural form of disposing the dead.

The gem-like beads from the remains of your love ones relates emotional attachment seeing them in your hands like precious stones. This how Kim II-nam of South Korea deeply attached to his father who died 27 years ago. Maintaining treasure moments with his father to fight from grief and keeping his father close to him the moments seeing those crystal beads in his hands.

Not only Kim II-nam started embracing the new trend of keeping the death of love ones but the whole Korean communities started leaving the Confucian way. A law was passed in 2000 to remove the grave after 60 years buried in land. Additional campaign from the government is pushing their citizens to accept cremations to save space in a densely populated small country. The campaign was successful that cremation rate increase putting only 3 out of 10 dead humans were buried.

The rise of cremation in South Korea gives way to the sharp increase of beads maker companies that involves technologies in making gem-like beads from human ashes. It will take 90-minute for the whole process with ultra-high temperature forming into solid crystal. The resulting colors attracted one’s eye mostly blue-green, while others are turning into pink, purple, and black.

Bonhyang is one of the companies successful in this field founded by Bae Jae-yul. According to Bae Jae-yul the beads allow people to keep their relatives close to them, wherever they go.

Kim II-nam paid as much as $870 to the company who transforms the ashes into crystal beads after digging up the bones of his father from the grave. He put it in his urn the blue-green color like gem stones. Some of the beads put it in his car while some give it to his five daughters. Whenever he saw them it feels his father is in them.

The other side of moral issue is profit-taking venture when companies dramatic rise find it lucrative for business the rising demands of cremation and beads making.

But some conservative against it. For them the highest level of respect for the dearly departed is to let them go back to nature.

Fisherman Enrique Lucero León from Mexico able to discovered the unborn baby shark in the womb of its mother after getting out the fetus from the stomach. The 22-inch white shark with clearly one eye at the middle is rare phenomenon. No one could say the how it affects the development when the sea they are living is pollution free, or possibly, not the effects of climate change.

Maybe the ancestors came from something that live beyond our environment that cyclops has its own world under the sea. But the discovery makes science has its own explanation. Fetus with one-eye functioning result from congenital condition called cyclopia, which happens to several animal species which includes humans.
