Stop Doing This One Thing In An Air Conditioned Room.

With hot weather mostly experienced in Ghana, air-conditioners are not a luxury but a need as it helps to cool down very hot temperatured rooms bringing comfort to its users. We mostly see people turn on air-conditioners in their cars offices and even homes to avoid extreme heat. As even air-conditioners help in cooling our rooms, there is one particular rule everyone must know when using an air-conditioner.

1. Don't flatulate in an air-conditioned room.

Due to the combination of the foods we eat sometimes, we tend to go through a hard ordeal as our tummies try acting up, giving us much discomfort. As a result we may feel like flatulating/farting even in the midst of people but as much as possible don't do it there because this is what happens when you fart in an air-conditioned room with a fan on;

Depending on how bad the fart is, the temperature of the room would probably increase slightly and the offensive odour and the stench from the fart can last for hours. The time frame depends on the quantum of gas released and the intensity of smell.

This bad smell can affect all others in the room as they breath.

Trying to hold in flatulence also leads to a build up of pressure and major discomfort. A build up of intestinal gas can trigger abdominal distension, with some gas reabsorbed into the circulation and exhaled in your breath. Holding on too long means the build up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart. Don't hold on to fart/flatulence because it's not good for your health.

To save yourself from this embarrassment, excuse yourself to the toilet room or an open space outside the enclosed area and let it out.


Even though it's often considered embarrassing, farting is a normal and natural occurrence. It's the by-product of a digestive system at work. In fact, farting is healthy and good for your body. Your body produces gas as part of breaking down and processing food.
