Over the years you have no doubt distinguished the different kinds of farts that you and your buddies have doled out on numerous occasions.
They begin to become part of the individuals personality. Just as Bruno has black hair, his farts always have a distinct burst of burnt wood stank to them when he powers them out in long 5 second drawls. Milo on the other hand has quick rapid fire farts that seem to fill the room with rotting pork. Well it turns out that each fart does indeed contain some personal information to each individual in regards to their health.
Doctors have figured out that different types of farts can serve as blueprints for our health, especially in determining whether our digestive system and gastrointestinal tract are out of whack. Farts are basically a mix of the air we ingest and the gas we produce by bacteria in the lower intestine. Air that we swallow, sometimes with the help of certain foods and carbonated beverages, ends up in our digestive systems, it accumulates, and we need for it to exit our body which we do through performing our belching burps or are nasty farts.
Intestinal gasses also build up and need to be expelled. Regularly tooting seems to be normal and healthy. The problem comes when the farts start smelling different or worse. Like Milos signature rotting pork stank, now has an old pair of socks added to the aroma. This could mean somethings off balance, like your gut bacteria is out of sorts and Milo needs to start eating a lot healthier. If it gets even nastier and more frequent, it could mean some chronic problems are taking place like gastroenteritis or irritable bowel syndrome. If they become more frequent than what is average (20 toots a day or so) then this could be a red flag. But farting is subjective so whats average to some is not for others.
Timing is also a factor. If Bruno suddenly starts tooting right after hes downing some dairy, then this could mean that a degree of lactose intolerance is taking place. Food allergies may also be to blame.
Despite the stank, not all farts that reek like rotten meat are a sign of bad health. Naturally, some of your farts will smell as intestinal bacteria generated gas, naturally smells like hydrogen sulfide, which actually smells like rotting eggs. Ironically a lot of healthy foods can cause this, like like broccoli, beans, cauliflower, dairy and red meat as well.
So its actually a good thing to personalize yourself with your farts. That way, when you start noticing a change in stench you can become more aware that a red flag is present, or alert one of your buddies that their flagellant aroma is a bit off!
Share this important information with your buddies and loved ones so they know to monitor their toots and take note of any noticeable changes!
