You'll be felling about 14 times today, leaving around half a liter of gas as proof.
But not every tooth is the same. Some are quiet – but deadly, while others like the thunder rush through the room. Sometimes farts feel warmer than normal or burn when they escape. And no, you're not the only one to do this.
Although flatulence is a normal part of digestion, it may be embarrassing for some people to talk about it – which means that our gas forwarding questions often go unanswered. That's why we approached Lisa Ganjhu, DO, clinical associate professor in the Department of Gastroenterology at NYU Langone Health, to find out why the passing of gas sometimes feels warm.
Are some farts warmer than others?
Farts may feel "hot", but that's because of perception rather than temperature changes, says Ganjhu.
"Everything depends on your body temperature," she explains Men's Health . "The heat of the gas that comes out of your body will have the same temperature as your body's."
Ganjhu explains that people sometimes feel a burning sensation when they accelerate, which they call "warm". "But you should never feel any pain, which could be a sign that something is wrong, and then it's time to go to the doctor to make sure you do not have hemorrhoids or tears," she says.
Ganjhu Explains that burns can be caused by eating spicy or acidic foods Potable water can reduce its severity by neutralizing the acid.
However, some foods such as hot sauce are only problematic.
"If it burns your mouth "It will burn your butt coming out," explains Ganjhu. "The tissue in your mouth is very similar to the tissue in your rectum."
