Passing gas 101: What your flatulence patterns mean for your health
Passing gas: Everybody does it – and no one wants to admit it.
This embarrassing habit may seem foul, but breaking wind is simply an unavoidable byproduct of our daily digestion. In fact, the average individual can pass gas anywhere from 13 to 21 times a day.
But your gaseous patterns can actually speak volumes about your health, especially in regards to your eating habits, and they may even serve as an indication of larger digestive health issues.
“People who produce excessive amounts of gas and particularly foul smelling gas – if you’re eating a super high fiber diet, that could be part of it,” Dr. Anish Sheth, a gastroenterologist in Princeton, N.J., told FoxNews.com .“But if it’s something that’s persistent, and your significant other is noticing it, it could be a problem.”
During digestion, food particles pass from the stomach to the small intestine, where the large majority of food absorption takes place. Then, undigested particles pass into the large intestine and the colon, where bacteria break the rest of it down. This bacterial fermentation ultimately releases the main components of intestinal gas – also known as flatus.
According to gastroenterologists, carbohydrates such as sugars, starches and fibers produce the most gas in the colon, as they do not get absorbed as completely in the small intestine. This is why vegans and vegetarians tend to be more flatulent than their meat-eating counterparts.
“A lot of what you eat really can produce more gas,” Dr. Gina Sam, director of the Mount Sinai Gastrointestinal Motility Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, told FoxNews.com .“So if a person is eating a lot of beans, vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower or Brussels sprouts, whole wheat or bran, even sodas like fruit drinks with fructose sweetener, they can have more gas….What patients can do is decrease these products and go more on a protein diet [to decrease their gas].”
Mostly comprised of carbon dioxide, flatus also contains an eclectic blend of non-smelling gasses, including oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sometimes methane. The foul smelling odor actually comes from a combination of sulfur compounds, which comprise less than 1 percent of the gas’s composition. According to Sheth, many red meats and protein contain high amounts of sulfur – so while herbivores may pass gas more often, flatus from meat eaters may smell much worse.
And as for that all too familiar gaseous sound? It’s a result of the gas passing through the rectum, causing vibrations in the anal opening. The auditory pitch all depends on the tightness of the sphincter as well as the velocity of the gas being expelled.
While individuals can sometimes voluntarily control their flatulence during the day by tightening their rectum, all bets are off during the nighttime hours.
“People fart when they sleep,[because] your anal sphincter relaxes while you sleep,” said Sheth, who is also the co-author of “What’s Your Poo Telling You.”“No one realizes it, unless their partner tells them.”

Feces normally have an unpleasant smell, but it is a smell that is common and unremarkable. Foul-smelling stools have an unusually strong, putrid smell. Although in many cases, foul-smelling stools are related to the foods you eat, and the bacteria flora resident in your colon they can also indicate a serious health problem. Diarrhea, bloating, or gas (flatulence) may accompany foul-smelling stools. These stools are often soft or runny and are not considered a regular bowel movement.
What Causes Foul-Smelling Stool?
Often a change in your diet is the reason for foul-smelling stools; malabsorption is another common cause. Malabsorption occurs when your body is unable to absorb the proper amount of nutrients from the food you eat. This generally occurs when there is an intestinal infection or an intestinal disease that prevents your intestines from absorbing nutrients from your food.
Common causes of malabsorption are:
Celiac disease—a reaction to gluten damages to the lining of the small intestine that prevents proper absorption of nutrients
inflammatory bowel disease—Crohn’s or colitis, for example
carbohydrate intolerance–the inability to completely process carbohydrates (sugars and starches)
Dairy protein and other food allergies
A common symptom of malabsorption is foul-smelling diarrhea
