Did You Know Smelling A Fart Can Help You Live Longer?

There are certain stages between all the humans that distinguish one’s closure and comfort level with the others. This includes lots of things like burping, farting, talking about poop and so on. We feel hesitated even at the time of the first burp in front of new people around us. And farting in front of others, especially in front of your loving partner seems something really embarrassing. But you will be amazed to know that smelling a fart might help you to live longer.

No, don’t judge me by my words. It is proven according to the recent study of the University of Exeter.

One of the researchers in this study, Dr. Mark Wood said that “Although hydrogen sulfide is well known as a pungent, foul-smelling gas in rotten eggs and flatulence, it is naturally produced in the body and could, in fact, be a healthcare hero with significant implications for future therapies for a variety of diseases.”

In this research, experts have found that the microbial byproduct can actually be very beneficial for the individuals. And this reduces the chances of some major disease like cancer, heart attacks, arthritis, and strokes, this also reduces the possibilities of dementia in the long run.


It is not the end, there are several more benefits of smelling a fart. There is a thing called Mitochondria. Mitochondria drive the energy production in human cells, and this can be preserved by smelling those compound in farts.

Also, Professor Matt Whiteman claimed that “When cells become stressed by disease, they draw in enzymes to generate minute quantities of hydrogen sulfide.”He also said, “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.”

Now it is cleared that farting is good for health for both, the person who farts and for the one who smells it. So, next time when someone farts around you doesn’t give any disgusting looks and let it rip after all this will help you to live longer.
