Flatulence

Flatulence is the emission of a mixture of gases called 'flatus' present in the intestine. It is the state of having excessive stomach or intestinal gas. This can result in uncomfortable feelings of bloating, as well as increased belching (burping) or passing of gas from the rectum.


Whether you like it or not flatulence is a condition that all of us experience at some point of time or the other. Flatulence itself, although not life threatening, can be a major source of embarrassment when it happens in social settings making for some really awkward situations. Most people pass gas about 14 times a day.
