farts are basically the gaseous product formed by the waste products of the 
body. I assume that you know the contents of the body wastes. And you also 
know tht body waste (stool) stinks, that's the reason your fart stinks. Actually 
the fart contains urea and ammonia in high content .... with some other 
chemicals which when combined together produce a bad smell.
thanking you
