|Health Benefits Of Smelling Your Partner’s Farts|
Still wondering about this new research by scientists which states that Smelling The Farts of Your partner will Make You Live Longer. This sounds funny right?
A research team at the University of Exeter have discovered it’s good to inhale your partner’s stinky farts as the gases in them can combat diseases.
The study, published in the journal Medicinal Chemistry Communications, analysed the impact of the gas hydrogen sulfide which humans produce in small amounts.
Although it was found to be harmful to three body in large amounts, researchers discovered that cellular exposure to small amounts of the gas can prevent mitochondrial damage which has many health implications.
One of the researchers, Dr. Mark Wood, said:
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.
Surprisingly the gas can actually reduce the risk of several life threatening illnesses including cancer, stroke and heart attacks.
According to researchers, it has also been proven to prevent arthritis and dementia in old age.
Creating a new compound know as AP39,
The team at the University believe this can hold the key to 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:
According to the scientists 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.
Early results also show that AP39 can help to lower high blood pressure and also drastically improve the chances of survival of a patient after a heart attack by slowing the heartbeat.
The team are currently working towards testing the compound in humans.
This research is interesting but of course in its early stages with no real conclusions being made.
However, if you catch your partner eyeing you up weirdly tonight in bed, just sitting there waiting, you know why.
