Possibly the weirdest study ever published in the journal Medicinal Chemistry Communications, has revealed that getting a waft of your partner's farts actually make you live longer.
The study analysed the impact of the gas hydrogen sulfide - which humans produce in small amounts whenever they let one rip.
Hydorgen sulfide is noxious in large doses, however researchers discovered cellular exposure to small amounts of the gas can prevent mitochondrial damage which has many health implications.
Dr. Mark Wood, who was involved in the study, 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.”
Farts could 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.
So sounds like it is best to let your loved one let a few toots off when you are together, it could help you out a lot in the long run!
