Farting Can Help Prevent Dementia And Make People Around You Healthier, Study Finds

Farting Can Help Prevent Dementia And Make People Around You Healthier, Study Finds

Believe it or not, your farts are prolonging your life.

England may have found a new way to remain healthy. According to a study done by Exeter University, farting, the process of releasing gas from the body, is actually healthy. All the times you were worried that people might laugh if you audibly farted? Well, believe it or not, they should be thanking you — not laughing at the sound or cringing at the smell.

    Everybody farts. Whether in private, outside in nature, or surrounded by friends (or complete strangers), the pressure that is built inside from the quivering stomach muscle is released into the world. Depending on what is being held in the intestines or stomach acid, these farts can carry an incredibly raunch stench or be rather odorless. They can be silent, or if angled off the right chair, echo throughout an entire room. People will either own their farts with pride or stay quiet about the ordeal, even throwing someone else under the bus of stinky gases. The process of releasing gas is a natural function of the body, much like burping, and relieves pressure from deep within you. Have you ever thought to ask if it had any more functionality to the body?

    Imagine you are in a high-end restaurant (or just finishing up at Taco Bell). The food is extremely rich in content and your stomach starts quivering. A sensation deep within the intestines is signalling to your body that you have to fart. According to scientists, farting is another bodily function meant to prolong life. This is due to the chemical makeup of the gas that exits your body. Like Flouride (found in the average toothpaste), Hydrogen Sulfide can be deadly in high doses. However, a fart contains a small dosage of H2S that is small enough to be consumed by humans. The specific amount that leaves the body in a fart is extremely healthy. Imagine, all the times you farted in class, you were helping those around you lead a healthier life.

    But how is a fart healthy? Understanding the chemistry is the next step. Hydrogen Sulfide is produced via bacteria breaking down the food in the gut of any human. Apparently, a small dosage of Hydrogen Sulfide can help combat Dementia. This is because the disease changes the way enzymes work in the human body. While suffering with an illness, enzymes are hired to generate the gas anyway.

      A new compound, AP39, is being made out of the gas in order to pump straight to the disease in people. While still in the early testing phase, the compound has been effective in helping 80% more mitochondria survive with cardiovascular disease running rampant. But that is not all, the fart gas has the ability to keep people safe from heart attacks, strokes, arthritis, and cancer, according to The Mirror.

      Hydrogen Sulfide is not only found within your body, but is also the culprit behind the foul smell of rotten eggs. That’s right — the awful and grotesque smell of past-due-date eggs is comprised of the same gas that is now being used to treat vicious diseases in the human body.

      Maybe it is time for people with smelly farts to start bottling them up. Will jars of Hydrogen Sulfide start being the key to ridding the body of Dementia? Regardless, the next time you find yourself needing to release a fart, just go ahead and do it. Now you can be proud and even smile as the stench rises up to your nostrils. Not only are you helping yourself, but the others surrounding you will have to thank you as well. Stand up for your farts.

        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

        We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

        On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

        Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

        1. Smart Door Locks

        A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

        2. Smart Kitchen Tools

        Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

        3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

        If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

        4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

        5. Nest Thermostat

        This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.
