Yes, farting, this might be surprising to you but science has its justification and it says that smelling your partner’s fart can help improve your health and may actually help you live a long healthy life.

It’s very easy to determine a couple’s level of closure and comfort by this. Letting out your first fart in front of your beloved makes you grow in confidence and strengthens your relationship ever more. Or so we’ve heard.

It doesn’t end there. It’s also one of the oldest and classical pranks in a relationship. Commonly done by letting it rip in the bed and hot-boxing your significant other with the rotten egg odor. It may cause one to chuckle and the other to temporarily burst in anger, but still.

However, there is some good news and it’s not for the victims here. A recent study from the University of Exeter is raising suspicion that farts can actually be good for your health. They have undertaken several experiments and to everyone’s surprise, the results were not what they were expecting initially.

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.”

The main ingredient in question, Hydrogen Sulfide, causes the horrendous smells that follow your silent demon. I’m sure we all are well familiar with the smell in question and this might also bring back some unpleasant memories back to you but today it’s all about the positive effects this have on our health so let’s bear with it for a while after all we all want to have a healthy long life.

These researchers have found that the microbial byproduct can actually have benefits for the individuals and can be very helpful to protect you against some very serious diseases.Main implications of smelling your partner’s fart include reduced chances of heart attacks, strokes, and cancer, including arthritis and dementia in the long run.So after all the smell turns out to be a blessing in disguise.

It does not end there. Mitochondria, which drives the energy production in cells, can be preserved by smelling the compound included in the farts. So it doesn’t only help fence your body against diseases but also helps your body to improve by assisting it or rather providing it with an extra source of energy. So, guys, it’s not bad to get a free push by just putting your nose in agony for a while or I would rather say controlling your nerves for a little longer and enjoy the mental suffering rather than lashing at it, after all, it is benefitting both of you.

Professor Matt Whiteman went on to claim 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.”

In order to test out their theory, they created a compound called AP39. This process delivers very small amounts of gas to the mitochondria. It was after this test that they concluded that if stressed cells are treated with AP39, they stay alive without harming the mitochondria.

Apart from these scientific reasons farting can also be helpful to balance your diet and can also be taken as an early health warning. Therefore either it’s you or your partner farting rather than reacting negatively to it we must take it seriously and use it to our benefit as they say mother nature always works to your advantage. So now is the time we break the myth that farting is a bad thing and start taking it in a more constructive way. Therefore let’s put the farting on the list of good things we have in our relationships.

After this, it’s safe to say that the culprit has a solid argument as to why they farted in bed. Let it rip!
