"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." I think he missed the point: If you can succeed using what is probably the worst source of genetic information, you have a better chance of success anywhere else.

Had a think about this one. I seem to remember making urea-formaldehyde in a chemistry lesson at school. Each of us in the class had to provide our own urine sample for use in the experiment. Add to formaldehyde with something I can't remember, and hey presto you have the basic building block chemical for melamine, Formica, and a load of other hard wearing resins in every day use. So making teeth from urine could be possible, but I don`t know about the growing them bit.
