Japanese Scientist Creates Vanilla From Poop!

Mayu Yamamoto received the 2007 Ig Nobel Prize at Harvard University for her work with cow dung.

Yamamoto found a way to extract vanilla odor and flavoring from cow poop!

I wonder if this will be bottled in the future?

The Ig Nobel Prize was developed by the Annals of Improbable Research humor magazine. The awards are for genuine achievements- but ones that often have a humorous, outrageous and/or unexpected result.
