In the process of doing my “research” about flatulence issues, I came across a number of interesting products, treatments, cartoons and pictures regarding the act of passing gas.
Therefore, I will share.
While this tends to be a comical issue, I do feel obligated to point out the fact that flatulence can be a serious problem for some people. But I figure that even they would be hard pressed not to laugh (or at least smile) at some of what follows.
For starters, did you know that your body produces anywhere from 1 cup to a half-gallon of gas a day, and as a result, you should be passing gas about 14 times a day?
Don’t believe me? Maybe it’s time you get your facts straight.
Check out the causes and treatments for excessive gas.
And, for the record… people tend to burp 15 times a day, on average.
Flatulence occurs when a food does not break down completely in the stomach and small intestine. As a result, the food makes it into the large intestine in an undigested state. Source

Our bodies operate a lot like an automobile engine. You have an intake system (mouth, which takes in food/fuel), ignition/combustion chamber (stomach/intestinal tract, which burns the fuel then converts it to energy), and an exhaust system (colon/anal, which emits vapors and gases which are expelled).

Ah, but rest assured…
It turns out that the act of passing gas may actually be quite healthy:
This biochemical conversion adds years to your life. It’s also been proven to improve quality of life, lessen the risk of heart disease, and also acts as a skin exfoliant. Source

Funny Baby Farts:
Professionally, I pursued my Masters Degree in Family Therapy at Texas Tech — where I obtained invaluable expertise and experience helping people with a wide variety of physical and emotional health issues. Personally, I think it's useful when people realize that they're not the only one going through a difficult time. So any time that I think my personal health experiences would be helpful to someone else going through the same thing, I will share my story here. With health issues that I've personally experienced (like Endometriosis, Lyme Disease, Hysterectomy, Skin Cancer, Ganglion Cysts, Autism, and other topics that very few people enjoy talking about) and health products that I've found beneficial (like sleep aids, essential oils, and medications)… I do my best to provide my own raw and honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and (hopefully) find helpful. I'm grateful that I have a number of friends who have also been willing to share their very personal stories here — regarding their own physical and emotional health. When I'm not writing about health topics, you will find me sharing Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
