Various scientific studies have found that there is no significant difference between the concentration that younger and older people fart. In addition, there is no remarkable difference between the sexes.


A fart, generally known as flatulence or gas, is an accumulation of gasses within the small intestine from respiration and digestion. It is considered a normal part of how the body functions and oftentimes not a health concern. Normally, farts are noiseless and considerable. Apart from this, they can be smelly and loud. A person may experience some pressure and bloating before discharging gas. A typical fart is buildup of various gasses, most are not smelly. The smell is caused by sulfur compounds, which are present in eggs and some vegetables. There are various other foods and medications that can affect how much and how foul-  smelly gas is in the digestive tract.


What are the symptoms of farts or flatulence?

Releasing wind is common, but the concentration varies between individuals and based on a number of different factors including diet. Some people release wind only a few times per day, others up to 35 to 40 times, while the average quantity seems to be about 15. Symptoms of overmuch flatulence or farts may include:

  1. Foul smell of flatus
  2. Discomfort and abdominal distension
  3. Loud farts
  4. Releasing wind often
  5. Rumbles in the lower abdomen

Why do we fart?

The body forms intestinal gas as part of the performance of digestion. Once this gas is inside in the body, it requires to be released by anyhow. Farts are mostly thrown out from the anus or passed through the mouth as a burp. Some intestinal gases come about from the air that people swallow when they are drinking through a straw, smoking, chewing or eating. Oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen are external gases that are found inside the body and are known as exogenous air. On the other hand, intestinal gas forms in the body when bacteria in the colon disrupt the food and is called endogenous gas. Undigested food items are the main cause of foul-smelling flatulence.

Causes of farts

Causes of smelly farts can vary from harmless to serious illness. It may not be easier to determine what is behind foul smelling flatulence due to the number of probable causes. Various reasons for this condition revolve around medication and food. Moreover, some causes may represent an underlying health issue. The following are most common cause of smelly farts:

1. Heavy consumption of fiber rich food

High fiber food is difficult to digest. Despite the fact that it is good for people’s overall health. Gradual digesting foods breakdown and ferment in the digestive system. The fermentation process forms odor gas. Some high fiber food contains sulfur compounds which may affect odor. Foods which may cause odors are

  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Cabbage
  • Garlic

2. Intolerance to food

Food tolerance is the most general cause of stink odor farts. Average conditions that can affect smelly farts include gluten and lactose intolerances. In these conditions, the body’s inability to disintegrate gluten or lactose causes foul gas to create and immediately be passed. There are various people who may have food intolerance due to disorders such as celiac disease.

3. Constipation

It is produced when stool accumulates in the colon or large intestine and can have no way out. This happens due to taking some medications, unhealthy diet and other biological factors.  The formation of stool in the  colon often causes smelly gases. This excessive gas may cause discomfort and bloating. When ultimately passed, the gas is sometimes smelly.

4. Medications

One of the most culprits is antibiotics which may destroy some of the healthy or good bacteria in the digestive system while they work to demolish an infection. The discharging of good bacteria  affects an imbalance in the digestive system. These imbalances can cause a person to form bad smelly gas. It is also causing constipation and bloating

5. Colon cancer

Although not as usual, a person may undergo excessive smelly flatulence due to the presence of cancer in the colon. Cancerous polyps or tumors can create blockages that cause gas to form in the intestine.

6. Infections and Bacteria

The digestive tract manages the breakdown of foods into essential nutrients,  which are involved in the blood. It also forms waste, which is released through the colon. The digestive tract depends on various components to do this, including its native good bacteria. Sometimes, the levels of bacteria in the digestive system may become damaged, leading to an infection.

The infection will sometimes cause

  1. Nausea
  2. Fatigue
  3. Vomiting
  4. Foul smelly gas
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Pain in the abdomen
  7. Fever

As per ayurveda Breast cancer is correlated to the condition of Stana arbuda. Stana arbuda is of 6 types that are – vataj arbuda, pittaj arbuda, kaphaj arbuda, raktaja arbuda, mamsaja arbuda and medhaj arbuda. As per sushruta acharya the aggravation of tridosha that are vata, pitta and kapha leads to the development of malignant tumor where vata and kapha doshas are more responsible. The classical features of arbuda as per ayurveda are- it is round, large, firm, causes mild pain, slow growth, deeply rooted into the body, shows no suppuration and a flesh and swollen growth. So managing this condition as per ayurveda includes the alleviation of vata and kapha dosha and a little bit of pitta dosha.
