Default The Truth About ... Gas




Yes, gas--in a headline. Are you laughing? Good. Now, let's get to the stinky topic, shall we? I recently learned some fascinating information about gas, and you have to read this stuff! And, I want to know: what do you call gas in your house? I think "fart" is so awful, so I use this word instead ... So much cuter and less gross that fart, right?
So, I recently heard some facts about gas from the makers of CharcoCaps, a homeopathic gas remedy. They teamed up with gastroenterologist Patricia Raymond, M.D., for a gas-awareness campaign that caught my eye. Here are some things about gas that may surprise you:
  • The average person (you, me, Angelina Jolie) passes gas 14 times per day. 14 times?!
  • The healthier you eat, the more gas you pass (it's not just beans--fruits and veggies are big gas inducers, gals).
  • Gas happens about 4-6 hours after you eat. So, maybe don't have coleslaw for lunch before your dinner date.
  • Eat a high-fiber diet? Good for you! But, you'll pass gas more because of it. Fiber causes gas.
  • Non-stinky gas? It's probably just swallowed air.
  • Stinky gas? Really stinky gas? Really stinky hot gas? It means the food you ate 4-6 hours ago is having trouble digesting and is kind of chilling out down there while it feeds the bacteria in your gut, which creates more gas. Yuck.
  • The best way to get the gas out quick (it's got to come out eventually!): Do something active after a meal, like walking. It helps keep the gas and digestion process moving along.
