Reply: How To Control Fart?
Gas problem like passing the gas from anus or
in medical term, “Flatulence” is an absolutely normal phenomenon. The gas is
passed by every individual in this world even animal. All men and women, and
there is no difference in the frequency in these two genders. On average a healthy
young man passes the gas up to 14 times in a day. Older people pass less than
The gas that is emitted through anus is due
the action of harmless bacteria present in the colon or large intestine on the
food that has remained undigested. This means that greater the un-digested food
is eaten, the greater would be the gas produced. Let us discuss about the
composition of this gas that is emitted through anus so that we could
understand why it is too fouling smelly?
The main constituent of the flatulent gas are
Carbon dioxide, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Hydrogen, methane and last but not least is
Hydrogen sulphide gas. Remember that Hydrogen sulphide gas is produced mainly
due to the action of these bacteria on undigested food. This is gas which is most
pungent and this would result in the foul smelling of the environment.
Now in order to avoid the problem of excessive
and foul smelling flatulence one should has to correct his dietary habits. He
has to take the food which more digestible rather than eating indigestible
Remember there are certain food items that
produce more gas since they are less digestible. Following is there a list of
items in food which are linked with high production or less production of gas.
More flatulent Less
Fruits (Worst Offenders) Wheat
Vegetables (Worst Offenders) Rye
Oatmeal (Worst Offenders) Bran
Legumes (beans, Peans), (Worst Offenders) Other Grains
Milk and milk products
Different people have different and variable
intensity of producing gas and it depends upon how much bacteria they lodge in
their intestine. However; by adjusting the food and diet plan, one can minimize
the embarrassment due to flatulence and gas production.
