Did You Know....

... That farting is a sign that you have a healthy ecosystem in your gut???!!

Farting is a result of the bacteria digesting food which our gut is unable to do. Our gut does not have all the enzymes that are needed to process the food that we consume. Thus the role of bacteria in our gut. Gas is a by-product of the food processing.

Farts Trivia

1. Almost 20 times a day.
An average person farts between 10 to 20 times a day!

2. Enough to fill a mini balloon?
An average person produces 500 to 1500 milliliters of gas per day.

3. It's silent but not deadly.
99% of your farts are odourless.

4. The deadly ones!
Sulphur is the main compound which makes our farts stink! Sulphuric food such as onion, garlic, beans, broccoli, cauliflower will cause the DEADLY farts!

5. Come on baby light my fire!
You can literally light a fart on fire as one of the components of a fart is methane gas. Of course this is not advisable as you can literally light your ass on fire!
