A fart is made up of the following …
9% carbon dioxide
1% hydrogen sulfide (this is what makes it smell)

Aside from feeling good, there are health benefits to farting. It reduces bloat, making you feel thinner.

The smell and frequency of your farts can determine if you are eating the wrong foods. Red meat makes your farts smell bad, and beans make you fart a lot.
Reduce Abdominal Pain

When you hold in your farts you can inflame your colon and produce hemorrhoids. In fact, doctors warn people with colon problems to not hold in their farts.
Smelling Your Farts
