Dementia And Diabetes Can Be Prevented By Farts According To Research

There's a certain social stigma about farting, which is seen as uncouth. Most people would rather hold in a fart until they can release it in private. New research shows that it may be better for everyone's health if you just let her rip.

Exeter University in England found that gases in your body (or, more accurately, that come out of your body) can help prevent a host of serious ailments, such as stroke, heart disease, dementia, diabetes and can even combat aging.

"When cells become stressed by disease, they draw in enzymes to generate minute quantities of hydrogen sulphide. 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."

Farts, according to the study, are a ripe source of hydrogen sulphide. In small doses, this gas helps the body prevent and reverse mitochondrial damage.

Don't worry, though. You don't have to go around sniffing farts in the wind to benefit from the hydrogen sulphide. "We have exploited this natural process by making a compound, called AP39, which slowly delivers very small amounts of this gas specifically to the disease," said Whiteman, reports 'The Mirror.’

Next time you toot one off and someone gives you a dirty look, tell them you're doing them a favor.
