Smelling Farts is Good For Your Health
Looks like they’re not silent but — they’re silent but healthy! A new study from the University of Exeter that was published in your favorite publication — Medicinal Chemistry Communications — claims that sniffing hydrogen sulfide (aka what you let out when you rip ass) can actually help prevent mitochondria damage.
This doesn’t mean you should break into a lab and start huffing hydrogen sulfide; in large doses it’s not healthy for you. But according to researchers, catching a nose full every now an then does have the power to reduce the risk of diseases like cancer, stroke, or heart attacks.
