    Default YES! Stink In Farts Controls High Blood Pressure In Mice

    Thanks to science, I now have a valid medical reason to squeeze cheese:

    http://www.livescience.com/health/08...-pressure.html

    A smelly rotten-egg gas in farts controls blood pressure in mice, a new study finds.

    The unpleasant aroma of the gas, called hydrogen sulfide (H2S), can be a little too familiar, as it is expelled by bacteria living in the human colon and eventually makes its way, well, out.

    The new research found that cells lining mice’s blood vessels naturally make the gas and this action can help keep the rodents’ blood pressure low by relaxing the blood vessels to prevent hypertension (high blood pressure). This gas is “no doubt” produced in cells lining human blood vessels too, the researchers said.

    “Now that we know hydrogen sulfide’s role in regulating blood pressure, it may be possible to design drug therapies that enhance its formation as an alternative to the current methods of treatment for hypertension,” said Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Solomon H. Snyder, M.D., a co-author of the study detailed in the Oct. 24th issue of the journal Science

    It seems a tad unfair that I fart yet the mice get the benefit. Maybe my reward is just in the giving rather than the receiving.

    Do you think, then, that Richard Gere was actually giving medical assistance to that gerbil?

    Yup! I'm sure Axx posted it just for the ladies.

    And how about the simple, intestinal relief of rippin' the ol' Evinrude? Surely THAT drops your blood pressure as well.

    Good news, 'cause If I gotta wake the neighbors and pick the sheets back up off the floor every morning, might as well reap a benefit or two...
