Toot? Yes, but more than that. You might think you pass gas a lot, maybe even an abnormal amount, but an average person farts 10 to 20 times a day, and can produce up to 1,500 milliliters of gas. That’s normal, even if it’s embarassing. But if you notice changes in your flatulence, and not just in the sense that you start paying more attention, then the gas you pass can tell you what’s going on in your body. Fart a lot more than you used to? You could be pregnant, or maybe you’re just getting older. You might be starting to become lactose intolerant, which can happen at any age. Or it could be a sign of several different maladies. There are other possibilities as well. Discover magazine goes over what to look for, when to see a doctor, and tips on how to stop farting so much.
