There has been an interesting study which says that smelling farts helps decrease the risk of cancer. Basically the study says:
hydrogen sulfide — a.k.a. what your body produces as bacteria breaks down food, causing gas — could prevent mitochondria damage
Does this mean that the more gas you have inside yourself (or the more hydrogen sulfide you have) the lower the risks (more protection) are for cancer to appear. I myself do have IBS and pass a good amount of gas every evening.
Is it possible that a "disease" such as IBS could contribute to a persons health in another way to reduce risk of cancer?
