my school project on FLATULENCE

FLATULENCE (fart, flatus, intestinal gas, breaking wind, SBD):
• Did you know that the normal person does 14 farts a day?
• Did you know that Flatulence occurs when a food does not break down completely in the stomach and small intestine?
• The unpleasant odor of flatulence comes from bacteria in the large intestine that release small amounts of gases that contain hydrogen sulfide.(sulfur smell)
• Here is a list of known foods that cause flatulence. Note: these foods might not apply to everybody.

Flatulent Foods
Apples Apricots Beans Bran Broccoli
Brussels sprouts Cabbage Carrots Cauliflower Dairy products
Eggplant Nuts Onions Peaches Pears
Popcorn Prunes Raisins Soybean Tuna
