Somehow I feel relieved.

Farting is good for your health... it controls blood pressure, specially if they're stinky.

It says so in a scientific paper.

The unpleasant aroma of the gas, called hydrogen sulfide (H2S), can be a little too familiar, as it is expelled by bacteria living in the human colon and eventually makes its way, well, out.

New research found that cells lining mice’s blood vessels naturally make the gas and this action can help keep the rodents’ blood pressure low by relaxing the blood vessels to prevent hypertension (high blood pressure). This gas is “no doubt” produced in cells lining human blood vessels too, the researchers said.

@dlowan,
You should know better, rodent.

How stressed would you be if you were held in a laboratory, and had to run through mazes all the time?

I'm not a rodent, she said icily.

@dlowan,
Any way, if a science student can make a mouse epileptic, why can't a scientist make a mouse with high blood pressure?

@fbaezer,
Maybe I should refrain from belching so I can engage in this healthy habit more frequently.

@farmerman,
That reminds me of a joke where little Fritzi was farting and stinking up the classroom. The teacher ordered Fritzi out of the room and while walking out, he was smiling big time. He was asked by the irritated teacher: "What's there to
laugh, Fritz?"
"I am laughing because I am getting into some fresh air and you have to sit in
this stinking classroom."

speaking about this subject here's what you do. stand in a crowded elevator, or church, or wedding, or on a double date, and let one rip, then immediately turn to the next guy and exclaim in disgust, "good god man, that's nasty!"

however the chances of NOT getting in a fight are about zero.

Yes, definitely! Proudly fart where no man has gone before.

The only possible drawback may be a collective human race fart may not be great for the ozone layer. Wink

Because it's just wrong.

@dlowan,
I thought we already had a mouse with high blood pressure.

@CalamityJane,
That also reminds me of a joke.

A boy goes to pick up his date but has a lot of gas on his stomach. The father meets the boy at the door, and offers the boy a chair where a dog is lying under then waits with him while the girl is getting ready. As he is sitting there, he slips out a little one, hoping no one will hear or smell it. The dog's name is Rastus, and in a disgusting voice, the father says "Rastus!". The boy thinks to himself, good he thinks it is the dog, so this time he lets out a bigger one. Again, the father in a louder and more disgusting voice says "Rastus!" Thinking he is safe, the boy let's it all go that has been building up.

The father yells "Rastus!, get the hell out from underneath him before he shits on you!"
