Passing gas: Everybody does it – and no one wants to admit it.

This embarrassing habit may seem foul, but breaking wind is simply an unavoidable byproduct of our daily digestion. In fact, the average individual can pass gas anywhere from 13 to 21 times a day. But your gaseous patterns can actually speak volumes about your health, especially in regards to your eating habits, and they may even serve as an indication of larger digestive health issues.

“People who produce excessive amounts of gas and particularly foul smelling gas – if you’re eating a super high fiber diet, that could be part of it,” Dr. Anish Sheth, a gastroenterologist in Princeton, N.J., told “But if it’s something that’s persistent, and your significant other is noticing it, it could be a problem.”

Gaseous origins

Gas as a symptom


Okay, like the article starts off with.....

For me, before I had a major health event, I ate red meat like it was the last day of it. And now I eat Chicken and Turkey.
The difference was overwhelmingly better-for this topic. Matter of fact, everything there works a heck of a lot better.

AND< I had 17 pulips removed-prior to the medical event. The last check NONE-for a fews years now.

So, take heed and be careful & knowledgable of what you are eating, especailly if you are the one guy who seceretlyl stinks up the whole room!!!

HA HA HA ... I was just thinking about this the other day because I occasionally buy Raisin Bran and the gas begins .. ROLMAO ... on a side note .... if you are having trouble pooping .... while sitting on the toilet lift your hands over your head and grasp your wrist and pull up ...... It really helps you dump ... so to speak .....

My farts never smell.. But they're very loud and hilarious!
Is there a medical explanation for this?
And btw, I have a very keen sense of smell..

Right on about gas indicating a medical problem. Hubby had lots and lots of foul smelling clouds following him where ever he went. Finally was able to convince him to make small changes in his diet. Turns out that he is lactose intolerant and gluten sensitive. He does well until he has a glass of milk or a donut and then even the dog walks out the room.
