Since then I have spent most of my life in Pennsylvania and Colorado. My biggest weakness: I have no weaknesses. I’m a smooth operator, operating correctly, and a master of journalism according to the University of Colorado.

Farting in public can be embarrassing and let’s face it. No one wants to smell your flatulence.

However, a new study out of the United Kingdom says that smelling farts could help reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.

Researchers at the University of Exeter claim that smelling small amounts of hydrogen sulfide, which gives farts that rotten egg smell, can help keep your cells healthy.

The study can be found in the journal, ‘Medical Chemistry Communications.'
