This one just takes the cake...Who would have known.
This is a very stinky thread!




It has been a weird week in health news. First doctors said that Justin Bieber might save young boys’ lives (the “hip” bowl cut is actually a form of sun protection — skin cancer be gone!), and now scientists out of the University of Exeter are implying that smelling farts could actually prevent cancer, among other diseases.

What about those who like to sniff their own farts? Because I know a few...

I have also heard that there is some research going on about smelling farts; it turns out some of the test subjects that smelled farts had an increase in their IQ, making them smart fellers.

“Although hydrogen sulfide gas”—produced when bacteria breaks down food—”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,” Dr. Mark Wood said in a university release.


They could have just said hydrogen sulfide gas...I wonder what made them decide to look for "health benefits" in this gas.

I...I can't believe it. I read the title correctly!
I had to get in here to make sure.

The other poster is right! The Dutch oven is for science now! Your husbands are not torturing you....they're saving your life.
Also let's not confuse this with Sulfa drugs vs sulphur OK.

Gives a whole new meaning to "Grams Law" the heavier the gas ....you get the point. That's why I always remembered it as " Gramma has the walking farts law ". She was saving her offspring every Sunday family dinner!

All I can think is perhaps smelling it might release hormones in the brain to block harmful toxins.

Ironic considering I had colon cancer.....well let the jokes commence..

Remember more meat you eat, nastier is the scent ! Stay away from the veggies those neutralizes... the effect.

Next study what do you need to eat to make it most benefical.

Well that means the elevator was a very healthy place, It was not me honestly, now seriously though I think they are talking utter bilge and several years ago there was a study that suggested breathing in other people's flatulent expulsions reduces your immune system response for some time after (though maybe that has to do with holding your breath and suffering mild oxygen deprivation.

I searched...no mention on pay.
Perhaps magic beans....

Seriously though...still not enough. Even in the name of health.
