Fart Facts

Farting is the act of passing intestinal gases through the anus. These can sometimes be odorless and sometimes deathly. But do you know why you pass gas? Do you know why your farts are sometimes as loud as a blow horn or as quiet as a mouse.

The facts below will tell you a thing or two about something everyone does multiple times a day.

Flatulence is the production of a mixture of air and gases in the digestive tract that are by-products of the digestion process.

The average person will fart 14 times a day and produce half a litre of fart gas per day. Average flatulence composition:

Nitrogen = 59%
Hydrogen = 21%
Carbon dioxide = 9%
Methane = 7%
Oxygen = 3%
Other crap = 1%

Top 10 Farters

(1) Termites (2) Camels (3) Zebras (4) Sheep (5) Cows (6) Elephants (7) Labradors/Retrievers (8) Human - vegetarian (9) Human – non vegetarian (10) Gerbis

Fart blazing speed = 7 mph
Fart temperature = 98.6oF

Most farts that come from swallowed air (largely nitrogen and CO2) are relatively odorless. The bubbles from these farts are large and can produce large sounds.

Bacterial fermentation and digestion processes can produce various pungent gases. The bubbles from these farts tend to be small and smelly and do not produce much sound.

A person can still fart after death.

The nerve endings in your rectal area help distinguish the difference between farts and poop … but sometimes these nerves can get confused when your poop is more fluid than usual and results in things such as mud butt and sharting.
