Scientific Research Claims Your Life Can Be Prolonged By Smelling Your Partner’s Fart


Scientists reveal smelling your partner’s farts will amazingly make you live longer whether you like it or not.

According to a research team at the University of Exeter, it is good for you to inhale your partner’s stinky farts as the gases in them can combat diseases.

So don’t be surprised if you catch your partner eyeing you up weirdly tonight in bed, just sitting there waiting. The impact of the gas hydrogen sulfide which humans produce in small amounts was analysed by the study published in the journal Medicinal Chemistry Communications.

Although it was found to be noxious in large doses, researchers discovered that cellular exposure to small amounts of the gas can prevent mitochondrial damage which has many health implications.

According to one of the researchers, Dr. Mark Wood:

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. Amazingly the gas in farts can actually reduce the risk of several life threatening illnesses including cancer, stroke and heart attacks.

Gas in farts has also been proven to prevent arthritis and dementia in old age. Creating a new compound know as AP39, the University team believe this can open doors for future therapies as it ensures that the body retains and produces the right amount of hydrogen sulfide.

Researchers claim that this compound can be delivered to targeted cells in the body and placed inside. Professor Matt Whiteman, from the university’s medical school, added: 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. The scientists disclosed the research has shown that if AP39 is administered, in models of cardiovascular disease 80 percent of the heart’s mitochondria cells survive under highly destructive conditions.

According to early results, AP39 can help to reduce high blood pressure and also dramatically improve the chances of survival after a heart attack. It slows the heartbeat making it more efficient.

The team are presently working towards testing the compound in humans. This research is interesting but of course in its early stage without any real conclusions.
