MYTH VS. TRUTH
Excessive flatulence

MYTH:

Excessive flatulence is abnormal.

TRUTH:

Flatulence comes from the Latin word "flatus," which means "blowing." Flatulence is excessive gas in the stomach and intestines. It is the expelling of gas from a body orifice, especially the anus.

The average person excretes 400 to 1200 cc of gas each day. The gas passages may average a dozen a day in some persons and up to a hundred in other persons. This is considered normal.

Flatus from the lower intestinal tract contains hydrogen, carbon dioxide, methane, skatoles, indoles and small amounts of oxygen and nitrogen.

For those who have excessive (more than what is normal for you) can control their flatulence by avoiding foods that have been found to be flatulogenic.

In those people where there is no distinct relationship to a type of food eaten, should be reassured that flatulence, though sometimes socially awkward and embarrassing is not detrimental to health.

In fact, it's actually healthy to "blow wind."
