Fart Facts

Facts You Never Knew About Flatulence.


Ninety-nine percent of a fart is composed of odorless gases. The remaining 1% — usually sulfurous, give farts their pungent aroma.

The average healthy human passes gas about 14 times a day.

Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, beans, broccoli, cabbage, and bran are the most common culprits. Fructose, the sugar found in fruit, and dairy products also cause more flatulence.

Farts have been clocked at speeds of up to 10 feet per second. So stand back!

Women produce the same amount of flatulence as men.
