We’ve experienced this at some point of our lives. You find yourself holding in your farts for different reasons. Maybe you are in public and you are scared that it will be loud or stinky? Or maybe you want to look cool in front of your crush. Whatever the reason is, holding in your farts is a bad idea.
Holding in your farts has bad effects on your health. Farting is your body’s way of releasing toxic gas stored in the body. When you hold in your farts, you are messing with your body’s digestive system and it can lead to digestive issues. Here are reasons why you should not hold in your fart no matter what;
1. It makes your fart stink
If you are scared that your fart will smell, holding it in will only make it worse. The longer the gas stays in the stomach the smellier it becomes.
2. Causes digestive problems
Holding in your fart, causes your intestinal walls to fail especially in people who have weak intestinal walls. It also causes your stomach to let out loud rumbly noises which can be just as embarrassing as letting out a loud fart. The longer you hold in your farts, the longer the gas stays in your stomach leading to bloating. bloating can be very uncomfortable to deal with and it can lead to stomach ache.
3. The toxic gas goes back into your body system
If the toxic gas stays in your stomach for too long, it gets reabsorbed into your body system. This can lead to serious gastrointestinal diseases.
So next time when you feel like farting in public, instead of holding it, excuse yourself and release the gas. However, if you don’t want to fart in public avoid eating certain foods before leaving the house. Milk, onions, beans, carbonated drinks, cabbage and beer, are foods that cause farting so avoid eating them before going out in public.
