    I don't like them but as George Carlin once said "Have you ever noticed that your own farts...smell okay?"

    Smelling farts could be the best thing you do today
    Hydrogen sulfide, commonly found in rotten eggs and human flatulence, could have significant health benefits in small doses, researchers at the University of Exeter say.

    It's Friday, and what better way to spend the day that starts with F than talking about Flatulence?

    Anyone who has accidentally let one rip in a social situation understands the immediate horror associated with getting caught passing gas. But instead of being ashamed when you fart in public, you should embrace your dirty deed with pride, as you may have just helped saved someone's life. Well, that's what a study currently getting some attention might suggest, but it's more complicated than that.

    The study out of the University of Exeter in the UK found that the hydrogen sulfide gas found in rotten eggs and flatulence could reduce the risk of cancer, heart attack, strokes, arthritis, and dementia.

    The Exeter scientists created a compound called AP39 that slowly delivers small, concentrated amounts of the gas to mitochondria, the "powerhouses" of cells that take in nutrients, break them down, and create energy. Preventing or reversing mitochondrial damage is considered key to treating a variety of ailments.

    "Our results indicate that if stressed cells are treated with AP39, mitochondria are protected and cells stay alive," Professor Matt Whiteman, of the University of Exeter Medical School, said in a statement. The researchers have published their findings in the journal MedChemComm and presented them at the June International Conference on Hydrogen Sulfide in Biology and Medicine in Kyoto, Japan.

    They farted instead of having bubble bath.
