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.
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" ?
