    Cool I knew it all along....

    Found this article today.

    I found it very enlightening.

    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    Excellent! I always do feel so much more relaxed after a good fart.

    The title is so misleading it's offensive. Farts have almost nothing to do with the discovery of H2S being a transmissor such as N2O. Shame on this pseudo-science journalists.

    Awesome tags. I wonder how many people do a search for "fart".

    since when are farts offensive? if anything, they make people laugh and introduce a small bit of happiness to peoples' lives.

    Maybe on all of my new threads I'll put the word fart in the tag every so often.

    I think I'll stick to the conventional means of treatment rather than be subjected to that kind of aromatherapy.

    But I get the idea that it does more good inside your body than it does if it's expelled.

    Of course that farts are not offensive. I'm not *that* uptight. What's offensive is the little relation between the article's title (and the writer's interpretation) with the investigation's purpose and meaning.

    The only relation between the research and farts is the fact that the gasotransmisor that they discovered to lower the blood pressure happens to be the same molecule as the one that is found farts, but there is otherwise no physiological conexion between the two. Lowering-pressure H2S acts in minute amounts dissolved in blood serum and is produced by human cells, while farts' gases are produced by bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. And there they *don't* lower the blood pressure.

    I get a little tired with this type of misinformation (which btw happens all the time). Now you'll have casual readers actually thinking that farting, or farts, lower blood pressure. Great.
