7 Smelling Your Farts is Healthy

This sounds gross but c’mon, many people love smelling their own farts yet they would freak out smelling someone else’s. Perhaps it’s evolutionary physiological instinct that makes us realize smelling our fears is healthy, Hydrogen Sulfide produced in the intestines during digestions can even help by prevention of mitochondrial damage to our cells.
