Interesting research going on here...with H2S combat and treat other diseases such as diabetes and helping with the cardiovascular system...draw your own conclusion on the "controlled and regulated manner" sounds like the key is put the gas where it's needed...BD 

Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is a gas most commonly associated with the smell of stink bombs, sewage and rotten eggs, but a team of researchers from the Peninsula Medical School in the South West of England and King’s College London have now identified a role for this gas in regulating blood pressure, according to research published today in the leading science journal Circulation.

The research team has previously shown that H2S is produced naturally within our bodies, along with other gaseous molecules such as nitric oxide and that a balance between these gases relates to good health, whereas an imbalance could indicate disease. In the case of high blood pressure, a reduction in nitric oxide results in increased blood pressure, while H2S may counteract this.

However, the research team from the Peninsula Medical School and King’s College have synthesized a new molecule which would allow H2S to be released into the body in a more controllable and regulated manner.Dr. Matt Whiteman from the Peninsula Medical School added: “These are exciting times. We are only just starting to unravel the surprising role H2S has in the body not only in the cardiovascular system but also its role in inflammation, neurodegeneration and diabetes, as well as its role in health”.
