Fart (flatulence) is the air coming out of the anus. It is quite natural to fart so do not fret if you fart regularly as it is only a positive sign to let you know that your body is healthy. In fact, the food you consume is responsible for your farts so having proper foods for healthy farting should also be considered.
Let's consider some scientific facts about fart (flatulence):
1. Females tend to fart less than males. While females don’t fart as much as males, their farts tend to smell more because they have greater levels of hydrogen sulfide. This makes the air females produce better for human health as well.
2. A normal human being will fart over a dozen (12) times every day.
3. The air a single fart produces can be used to blow up one balloon.
4. The main component of a fart is hydrogen sulfide which helps decrease any damage to the mitochondria. This means that taking in the smell is actually good for you.
5. Your farts are much faster than you because they travel 10 feet per second.
6. The tighter your sphincter, the more sound your farts will make because they can’t get out easily.
7. If you chew a lot of gum and drink aerated drinks, it will increase the frequency of your farts.
8. Most of our daily farts happen when we are asleep.
9. About 88% of men who don't fart when urinating are infertile.
10. 99% of a fart is odorless.
11. Vegetarians fart more than carnivores.
12. Farts are highly flammable.
Now let's consider some health benefits of fart (flatulence):
1. It prevents bloating
Bloating can be the result of the accumulation of gases in the gut which finds it hard to get released and hence with the help of farting, the emission becomes easier and with that, you will feel an instant relief in discomfort caused by the bloated belly.
2. It improves colon health
Holding gas within tends to be bad for health and can cause an issue for your colon. So, keep farting and let your colon breathe healthily.
3. It prevents illnesses and infections
Small doses of the rotten egg smell produced in farts have proved to prevent illnesses and infections. So, the next time when your office colleague lets out a silent but deadly emission, be thankful to them.
