Research has found: Humans are able to breathe from the buttocks - and it may save lives
It may not be ideal, but it works!
Researchers have found an alternative way to perform the soul if our lungs collapse - the soul through the buttocks.
An experiment performed on pigs and mice showed that they are able to breathe from the buttocks

Why is it forbidden to "hold farts inside"?
A new study has found that humans are able, at least theoretically, to breathe through the buttocks - and in the future it may save lives.
A group of scientists performed a series of experiments on pigs and mice, based on the turtles' known slow metabolism, when they came to this very sensational conclusion.
In winter turtles slow down their metabolism and get most of their oxygen through the gutter opening (the back exit opening in the bodies of various animals) in a process known as "gutter opening breathing".
Reptiles and other amphibians use similar breathing techniques to breathe without using health.
However, until recently it was believed that if you are breastfeeding - once the lungs stop functioning, your luck is over.
We now believe that our gut, which also plays a crucial role in our lives (from absorbing nutrients from the food we eat to eliminating unnecessary waste) is able to save it in the moment of truth - when the lungs can no longer stand it.

We know that the intestines can absorb chemical components and transfer them to the rest of the body.
This is one of the ways in which our gut microbiome communicates with the brain, however so far it has not been clear whether the same or similar processes can be used to get oxygen into the bloodstream.
To test the hypothesis, scientists created a scenario in which pigs and mice in the laboratory were deprived of oxygen in the usual way and these were inhaled through the intestines instead.
To improve the likelihood of oxygen uptake, some animals underwent their bowel lavage to dilute the mucosa and reduce the blood flow barrier.
The findings of the study were published in the journal Clinical and Translational Resource and Technology Insights and below are:
Unsurprisingly, animals in the control group who were prevented from breathing and did not receive “intestinal respiration” died after about 11 minutes.
Animals that received intestinal respiration without intestinal lavage survived almost twice as long, about 18 minutes, indicating some oxygen uptake.
Finally, 75% of those animals that were flushed and received oxygen under pressure into the anus, survived for an hour - throughout the experiment.
This proves that mice and pigs are able to breathe from the gut under the right conditions, which has given researchers reason to believe that other mammals - such as humans - may have the same ability.

However, the bowel lavage process can be dangerous so the researchers tried to find out if there was an alternative solution that could achieve similar results.
They found another option: oxygen-rich liquids called perfluorocarbons.
They repeated a similar experiment, again using mice and pigs, but this time they flooded their intestines with carbon fluoride instead of gaseous oxygen.
They found that the animals experienced increased oxygen levels in the blood, which were measured at normal levels.
Although this has not yet been tested on humans, scientists believe the method may be used as an effective alternative breathing technique when more conventional methods, such as mechanical respiration, do not work.
It is also possible that introducing high levels of oxygen into the digestive tract will have a negative effect on the microbiome, but this is usually a secondary concern if you are unable to breathe.
Further testing is needed to determine if intestinal ventilation may be an effective life-saving tool in humans.
