Farts help you live longer!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

KEEN-NOSED boffins have found that smelly farts are GOOD for you!

And sci­en­tists at Ex­eter Univer­sity dis­cov­ered the health-giv­ing prop­er­ties of bum gas in­ten­sify, the smellier the guff is.

Ex­perts claim heart at­tacks, strokes and even can­cer can be staved off by trumps.

Re­searcher Dr. Mark Wood said: “Al­though hy­dro­gen sul­fide is well known as a pun­gent, foul-smelling gas in rot­ten eggs and flat­u­lence it could be a health­care hero with sig­nif­i­cant im­pli­ca­tions for fu­ture ther­a­pies for a va­ri­ety of dis­eases.”

Pro­fes­sor Matt White­man from Univer­sity of Ex­eter’s med­i­cal school added: “When cells be­come stressed by dis­ease, they draw in enzymes to gen­er­ate minute quan­ti­ties of hy­dro­gen sul­fide.”
