Study: Smelling farts is good for your health

http://theweek.com/article/index/264585/speedreads-study-smelling-farts-is-good-for-your-health
The next time someone at your office lets out a "silent but deadly" emission, maybe you should thank them. A new study at the University of Exeter suggests that exposure to hydrogen sulfide — a.k.a. what your body produces as bacteria breaks down food, causing gas — could prevent mitochondria damage. Yep, the implication is what you're thinking: People are taking the research to mean that smelling farts could prevent disease and even cancer.

The study, published in the Medicinal Chemistry Communications journal, found that hydrogen sulfide gas in rotten eggs and flatulence could be a key factor in treating diseases.


A few more paragraphs at the link. Worth the click.
My wife is not impressed. "Why am I not the healthiest woman in the world, then?"

Still. Now I know I am out there, doing my part and saving lives. Pull my finger and live another year!

1. Well, that explains why my college roommate is so healthy ...

Some 30+ Yrs L8tr.

In our Dorm Rm on a large midwest campus, he & his girlfriend would comment on the nature of 'his' farts. He actually
determined if u fart in a large museum, library or similar large arena ... & try 2 walk elsewhere 2 distract fr. the fart's origin ... your fart stay's w/ you.

I was raised too politely 2 fart w/ someone else in the room, even my dorm room.

He's now a petro geologist earn. 100K + living btwn Brazil, Alaska & Texas.

BTW, Have You Read Ben Frankln's "FART PROUDLY" ?
