Farting Up To 15 Times A Day?
Doctors say the average person farts anywhere from 5 to 15 times per day. Farting is a normal part of digestion that reflects the activity of the bacteria in your gut. You might also notice that you fart more when you eat certain foods that are more difficult to digest, such as beans or raw vegetables.
No matter what you tell your S.O it’s pretty much a given that you fart on the regular. In fact, if you’re like most people, you probably do it several times per day.
But if you find that you seem to be tooting more than usual, it’s natural to wonder if you’re going overboard in the gas department. It turns out, what’s considered “normal” for passing gas is probably more than you’d think.
According to gastroenterologists, the average person has about 0.5 to 1.5 liters of gas hanging out in their digestive track per day. However, the actual amount of gas that you fart out varies, and it’s hard for doctors to put an exact number on it.
There’s a general thought that guys tend to be gassier than girls, but it’s a total myth. Research has not shown that gas production is gender-specific. Women and men alike both can toot up to 20 times per day and still be considered in the “normal” range, and that’s pretty common for all of us.
Wait, 20 times per day? Right now, you might be thinking, “well, I certainly don’t fart that much.” But, oh, you do. It turns out that we all expel gas, not only when we’re awake, but also as we snooze. It’s a reflex, after all.
Again, exactly how much you fart at night varies, but unless your middle-of-the-night farting is so bad that it’s waking you or your bed buddy up, it’s probably nothing to worry about.
