If you think breaking the wind is shameful and one ought to be kicked on the butt for doing that, then you are mistaken.

Researchers from the University of Exeter have determined that smelling your partner’s farts do indeed have health benefits though.

The researcher said inhaling this can reduce the risk of various life threatening illnesses like cancer, heart attacks and strokes, as well as preventing arthritis and dementia in old age.

Professor Matt Whiteman one of the medical scholars explained that when cells become stressed by disease, they draw in enzymes to generate minute quantities of hydrogen sulfide.

This keeps the mitochondria ticking over and allows cells to live. If this doesn’t happen, the cells die and lose the ability to regulate survival and control inflammation.

“We have exploited this natural process by making a compound, called AP39, which slowly delivers very small amounts of this gas specifically to the mitochondria, our results indicate that if stressed cells are treated with AP39, mitochondria are protected and cells stay alive” he was quoted.

“Anyone’s farts to who you happen to be in close proximity. Normally that’s more often than not going to be your partner so next time you feel the need to fart, just let it out and let them know it’s for their own good. The perfect plan” he advised
