|Man testing his blood pressure|
Eating farts is a possible new treatment for high blood pressure.
According to a recent study at Johns Hopkins University, hydrogen sulfide might help lower one’s blood pressure.
They are still looking into how much gas is needed for it to be beneficial.
The experiment at Johns Hopkins University proved that the smell of flatus, which comes from hydrogen sulfide, effectively controlled blood pressure in mice.
The treatment has not yet been tested on humans. The big question is will patients agree to “eat farts” to improve their health?
The research is ongoing. Researchers still need to find out if the gas will have any negative side effects.
