Everyone must have had this experience: when you are in an important and public place, your body will send you a signal that you want to “fart”. If it’s just the geese, it’s not embarrassing.
but if it’s a loud noise, accompanied by a strange smell, you really want to have a crack in the ground. However, generally speaking, farting is a natural physiological phenomenon. Everyone will discharge the so-called “exhaust gas” every day!
fart is actually the gas accumulated in the intestinal tract. We should know that the intestinal tract is the place for food digestion, and a large amount of gas will be produced due to the decomposition of intestinal flora. At the same time, eating too fast and swallowing a large amount of gas in daily life may also accumulate in the intestinal tract;
these gases can move downstream with intestinal peristalsis, and when accumulated to a certain extent, the pressure will burst out! Under normal circumstances, everyone farts about 10-15 times a day. Most of them are released when they are sleeping, and only a few will sneak out of their lives.
However, if you eat a lot of gas producing food in your life, it will cause an abnormal increase in the number of farts, such as bean products, sweet potatoes, white radish, milk and so on.
as for the smell of fart, it is mainly produced by intestinal flora such as Escherichia coli. If you eat a lot of meat, high sulfur food, sugar food and so on, you will produce a fart with smell.
in addition, there is constipation for a long time. If feces accumulate in the colon for a long time, bacteria will cause feces to generate a large amount of odor, which will be discharged from the body by farting!
therefore, the frequent and smelly farting is related to personal diet in most cases. Of course, intestinal disease is also one of the killers of this situation, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, enterovirus infection, etc., can lead to such symptoms. In addition, there is a disease need to be highly vigilant, it is: colon cancer!
from the clinical data and data, most patients with early colorectal cancer have almost no abnormal symptoms. But with the continuous development of the disease, cancer formation, patients can have a series of symptoms.
for example, hematochezia, abdominal pain and weight loss are typical symptoms. In addition, bowel cancer will also affect the normal operation of intestinal mucosa, leading to intestinal dysfunction;
after the intestinal peristalsis becomes poor, the food we eat can’t be quickly absorbed and discharged, so the intestinal flora will fall into disorder, and the patient may have constipation. When cancer develops to a certain stage, it can even cause intestinal obstruction. When there is a large amount of gas accumulated in the intestinal tract, the number of times of farting will become more and more frequent, accompanied by a strong odor;
especially in the defecation, when the patient farts more, it can also be seen that the stool is mixed with bright red or dark red blood. After the development, the patient will even directly discharge mucus like and pus like bloody stools, and emit bursts of strange smell.
Finally, I would like to remind you that if you fart, you should first adjust your diet. If after the diet adjustment, the symptoms are still not relieved, but accompanied by stool habit disorder, bloody stool and other symptoms, and continue for more than a week, you should see a doctor for examination at the first time!
