Reasons You Shouldn't Hold In Your Fart,According to Science

 



On average, a person farts 15 times a day and that number can go up to 40! Farting is caused by trapped air and bodily gases. While it is a completely normal process, it can be loud and embarrassing at times and that is the reason why most of us try to hold it in. However, doing so might not be such a great idea.


Holding in your farts can cause you some major problems. TRIG has listed some of them below for our readers. At the end, you’ll find a bonus consisting of tricks to stop your farts from smelling bad.
1. It can lead to pain and heartburn.
When you contract your muscles to avoid farts from escaping, it builds pressure inside your body and can lead to pain, indigestion, and heartburn. If done regularly, it can also cause swelling in your digestive tract.
2. It affects your colon health.


Farting eliminates the pressure in your body. While farting is good for your colon, holding it in can irritate it and can also trigger hemorrhoids.
3. It might be signaling a worse problem.





While farting is completely normal and healthy, its pattern and odor can actually point to potential health issues like food intolerances and digestive issues. Extremely stinky farts may also indicate a high sulfur content in your body. If your farts feel painful or something other than normal to you, we suggest that you consult a doctor.

Bonus: Tricks to use to avoid stinky and loud farts





  • Avoid drinking carbonated drinks since they produce more gas in your body.
  • Eat smaller portions and chew slowly.
  • Consume foods like bananas, potatoes, cereal, and wheat regularly to prevent farts from smelling bad.

Mysterious Creature Appears On The Sea Shore of Osu Castle,Ghana.

  A strange creature has recently been washed up on the sea shores of the Osu castle which, reportedly, caused many people to flee the scene since they believed it could be a creature of the spiritual marine realm. Nonetheless, others also claimed it could be a human who drowned and was moved by the ocean current to the shores. Examining the nature of the creature, it appears to be a human with a vitiligo condition. Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells(melanocytes). This can result in discolored pathes in different areas of the body. Others argued that, the saturated salt from the sea is what had preserved it's body from rotting and the constant washing and rubbing of the body against the sea bed had caused its skin to peel off. Others also claimed it was a sea god. When these photos surfaced on social media, many netizens passed their views. With that, some suggested it was the corpse of the Ghanaian singer 'Castro'.    

Moesha Suffers The Side Effect of Butt Enlargement?See Photos of Her Rotten Hips

  Going under the knife to have the ‘slay queen standard’ shape seems all lovely from the beginning until the marks and side effects rares its ugly head. The model and actress shared photos on her Instagram page and in one of the shots, her fans noticed something scary on her hips as if it has started decaying. The marks seen in the photos were similar to the ones that was found on the under arm and breast of Nina Richie when fans accused her of having a breast implant. Her fans asked if indeed Moesha’s hips were rotten or it was a tattoo or a hater who has intentionally edited the photos to tarnish her image. It is said that after an individual has successfully done his/her implant, they must frequent the hospital for check-up and failure to do so brings about the marks seen in the photos.      .
