Flatulence

Commonly referred to as ‘farting’.
Caused by gas in the bowels – undigested food.

“There are many different reasons why our bodies produce excess gas. Diet is one. Carbohydrates produce a lot of gas because they contain a lot of sugar and starch, which easily ferment. Lactose is another contributing factor. Our bodies have a hard time digesting lactose. Yes, milk and milk products cause flatulence.” [source]

For the past 2 weeks, I thought I was being healthy by eating cereal for breakfast in the mornings. Last weekend, I decided that I had to quit eating cereal as I was farting more than usual. Ugh. I hate farting.
Instead of it being the cereal’s fault, obviously it was the milk. *droops head down* I apologise to the auntie who walked by me in the supermarket aisle as I accidentally let out a smelly one. =(
Besides baked beans, other types of food that can cause flatulence: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, onion, carrots, eggplants, raisins, prunes, soybeans, etc.
Now I’ve got 2 bags of unfinished cereal in my fridge. I eat them while I slurp on my mug of Milo, once in a while. It’s not the same!

  4. Cen Ni: Yes, farting is normal. But burping is better since burping doesn’t leave a bad smell.
    Bimbobum: Hey, I could be walking away really quickly because I dont want to smell someone elses fart.
    Yeah funny that, it seems so disgusting and unattractive when a girl farts indiscreetly. But when a guy farts, it more casual. Could it be because girls fart stinks a lot more.
    :p
