How exactly does fart flux regulate Blood Pressure? On second thought, never mind I will leave this less than serious research to the morons nose'n around in it already.

Very interesting.

" This study is the first to reveal that the CSE enzyme that triggers hydrogen sulfide is activated itself in the same way as other enzymes when they trigger their respective gasotransmitter, such as a nitric oxide-forming enzyme that also regulates blood pressure, Dr. Snyder said.

Because gasotransmitters are common in mammals all over the evolutionary tree, these findings on the importance of hydrogen sulfide are thought to have broad applications to human diseases, such as diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases. "

It is bad when you expel gas(farts)and it smells so bad it makes you want to vomit.I thought some thing bad was going on in me instead all the stinky farts were helping.I've had excessive gas of late and my blood pressure has been lower than usual so now this makes sense. Thanks for the info.
