Quote:Hydrogen sulphide — a toxic gas generated by bacteria living in the human gut — has been shown to control blood pressure in mice.

Now researchers at China's Southeast University in Nanjing are trying to work out whether this could be used to create a treatment for people suffering high blood pressure.

Professor Yao Yuyu from the uni's Zhongda Hospital said: "Despite the treatment's potential, using gas to treat high blood pressure has yet to be tested on humans.

"The effective dosage could prove difficult to establish due to the difference in size between humans and mice."
