Farting, invented to make little boys laugh and to make the rest of want to crawl into big holes with our embarrassment. Most flatulence is completely normal and healthy and farting 6-20 times a day is in no way uncommon. This fact probably doesn’t help if you just let one rip in front of your whole pilates class. There are a number of causes of farting and below we cover the fundamentals, the smells, the processes and when it may be worth a visit to the local GP. Enjoy!
