Most people get scared to fart, especially when they are in public places. The uncertainty of how it will smell or how loud it may sound makes people hold in the fart. Also, society has not normalized the action. When I was young and I happened to fart in front of people, my parents would look at me and tell me it’s bad manners.
However, that does not mean you go around polluting air for other people. If you get the feeling to fart, excuse yourself from the crowd. Get a private open space and do your business and let the smell dissolve before going back. There are some health issues associated with holding in the fart.
Below are five reasons you shouldn’t hold in your fart.
When you keep holding in your fart when it’s supposed to come out, it will automatically go back to your system. It gets reabsorbed back and put back into circulation again.
As a result, it will look for other ways to escape, and most probably, it could be your mouth. It leaks through your breath or as a burp, which is not flattering. So, choose your poison; either you fart or burp.
