my school project on FLATULENCE
• 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.
Apples Apricots Beans Bran Broccoli
Brussels sprouts Cabbage Carrots Cauliflower Dairy products
Eggplant Nuts Onions Peaches Pears
Popcorn Prunes Raisins Soybean Tuna
