Passing gas in public is often frowned upon and tagged as a disgusting habit. However, scientific studies tell a completely different  tale, indicating that both passing and inhaling gas have health benefits.

Researchers have found that passing gas lowers the chances of cancer, heart attacks and strokes. It even helps prevent dementia.

When inhaled, the hydrogen sulphate content in gas is believed to aid in development of the brain. One burn’s approximately 67 calories after passing gas once. Which means one loses 1 kg of fat approximately after passing gas 53 times.

But if one passes gas frequently, it probably means the body is unable to digest the food.

Hey . . . loud farts can also make people laugh and you know what they say—laughter is the best medicine!
