Everybody passes gas. It’s a natural body function that everyone from babies to seniors does on a daily basis.
There is rarely an appropriate occasion to really let one rip. In quiet meeting rooms and trendy bars up and down the country, people are right now desperately holding in the gas. But in case you didn’t know, if you hold in your gas, chances are, it will find a way to escape through your mouth.
According to one expert, if you hold your fart in, that gas will find its way out of your body in a very surprising way. In a piece for The Conversation, Professor Clare Collins from the University of Newcastle revealed that the gas built up from avoiding the release would become “reabsorbed into the circulation and exhaled in your breath.”
“Trying to hold it in leads to a build-up of pressure and major discomfort. Holding on too long means the build-up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart.”
The nutrition and dietetics expert also noted that you could also be putting yourself at risk of diverticulitis, which is an inflammation of small pouches that develop along the walls of the intestines. However, research still hasn’t confirmed this as a fact yet.
Passing gas, especially in public, is quite awkward and embarrassing. It’s not all the time that we can control our farts. Sometimes it makes a loud sound, and we all know how stinky they could get. With that said, it is understandable while most people would rather hold them.
But Collins said that you just have to let it go instead of holding it in. But since you can’t do it anywhere and anytime you want, she suggested that you go to a more convenient location and do your thing.
