“In order to understand the science of passing gas, you have to understand the sheer scale of microbes that are housed in the human body,” explains AJ Troiano, PhD, a biomedical scientist and consultant. “It’s not the microbes that have protective properties, but the byproducts they produce during normal metabolic processes.” The important byproducts in this case are the copious amounts of hydrogen sulfide that are heartily expelled with each passing toot.

The study found that the stinky microbial byproduct most wives hate could actually reduce the risk of cancer, heart attack, strokes, arthritis, and dementia. According to other research, marriage is an important factor affecting the survival of heart attack patients, too, which means even if you’ve already suffered health issues, his finest farts could actually keep you alive, kicking, and sharp.

If you’re concerned about safe doses of inhaled hydrogen sulfide, you’re justified and should discourage your guy from loading up on delicious bean burritos—and the more surprising foods that cause gas—if you live in close quarters. A little whiff here or there may have health benefits, but you actually can overdose on fart gas.
