1. DON’T HOLD IN YOUR FART

Holding in farts can be bad for your health and causes things such as hemorrhoids and a distended bowel. So when next you feel like farting, don’t hold it in, let it out.

2. WE DON’T GET DISGUSTED BY OUR OWN FART

It has been scientifically proven that one becomes habituated to the stink and odors that one’s body generates. So, even if your farts smell way worse than those of the people around you, they will never disgust you as much as someone else’s farts.

3. FART ISN’T ALL THAT BAD

A recent study showed that the smell of small amounts of hydrogen sulfide can reverse mitochondrial damage and help avert strokes, dementia, cancer, and heart attacks.

Put in simpler words, sniffing your own farts isn’t all that bad afterall.

4. FEMALES FART MORE

Various studies have shown that when a male and a female have the exact same food, the female will most likely have more concentrated gas than the male. That also means her farts will have a stronger odour.

5. FART FETISHISM

Fart fetishism also known as eproctophiles, is the sexual arousal by farts. People with this fetish are said to spend an abnormal amount of time thinking about farting and have recurring intense sexual urges and fantasies involving the act. To them, there’s nothing more erotic than the smell of some freshly passed out fart.

6. FART PILL

In 2014, Christain Poincheval, a French inventor and the winner of the Gold Medal in 1999 at the prestigious Lépine Inventor’s Contest in France, developed a range of pills aimed at making people’s fart smell nice. The pleasant smells include those of chocolate and roses. He sells it directly on his website, pilulepet.com

7. PROFESSIONAL FART SNIFFER

Someone who can withstand the smell of a fart can make up to $50,000 a year in China as a professional fart smeller.

Apparently, Some Chinese who practice alternative medicine believe that each person’s flatulence has particular nuances – bitter, savory, sweet, fishy – and these undertones can be used to detect diseases by a trained expert with a sharp sense of smell.
