No matter whether you like it or not, according to scientists, smelling your partner’s farts will amazingly make you live longer.
Yes you read that right, a research team at the University of Exeter have discovered it is good for you to inhale your partner’s stinky farts as the gases in them can combat diseases.
Yes, farts those funny sounding and smelly things that emit from your glorious behind are good for your health.
First of all, before we get into the specifics – can we just ask a question: what the hell sort of university gave the green light for this study to be conducted? Because we want to give them a high five, cause that’s fucking awesome.
According to Dr. Mark Wood, one of the researchers at the University of Exeter:
“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.”

That’s science talk for saying the smell your stinky ass farts produce gives your body various health benefits.More nerd talk from another researcher, Professor Matt Whiteman:
“When cells become stressed by disease, they draw in enzymes to generate minute quantities of hydrogen sulfide (aka ass gas).”
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.
So next time you’re in bed letting off a stinker, make sure you lift the covers and let your partner really take in what you have produced.
