But there is a surprising way your husband ’ s worst habit may actually be increasing your lifespan: His farts are boosting your immune system. At least for now, the next time you find yourself in a stinky situation, knowing that you ’re protecting your health will help take the edge off the anger.

“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. They are an odiferous love letter about how much he cares. Really.

This teacher’s disgusting experiment proves why you should always wash your hands

  This teacher’s disgusting experiment proves why you should always wash your hands <p>Donna Gill Allen's students handled pieces of bread with clean hands and dirty hands, and you can probably guess how that turned out.</p>Donna Gill Allen teaches Health Occupation at Cape Fear High School in Fayetteville, so she knows a thing or two about the potency of germs. To show said potency, she and her class removed three slices of bread from the bag from which they came — one slice they removed while wearing gloves (the “control”), the second they removed with freshly washed hands, and the third they removed and passed around to all the students in the class.

Share. Tweet. Share. Share. Email. Comments. That one particularly awful thing he does? Turns out it could actually be helping your health. Here’ s the scientific research he’ s been waiting his whole life for. Just about everyone has heard by now that being married is good for your health and longevity

But there is a surprising way your husband ’ s worst habit may actually be increasing your lifespan: His farts are boosting your immune system. At least for now, the next time you find yourself in a stinky situation, knowing that you ’re protecting your health will help take the edge off the anger.

“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 says. 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.

At least for now, the next time you find yourself in a stinky situation, knowing that you’re protecting your health will help take the edge off the anger.

How Facebook Is Helping People Struggling With Mental Health Issues .
Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook is now using artificial intelligence to spot and report suicidal behavior on the platform. Instagram rolled out similar suicide-prevention features a few months ago.In the past, a somewhat alarming number of suicidal Facebook content went unreported, so the platform is upping its game to catch the posts and videos that aren't reported by users. Presumably people either didn't realize how serious their friend's problem was or didn't see the post in time, but either way, this is your reminder to keep your eyes peeled for things that look concerning in your feed—it never hurts to be extra cautious.
