Answer:

Farting, or flatulence is caused when enzymes and bacteria in the digestive system break down carbohydrates and proteins in the food. Gas is a product of these chemical processes that take place.

Most food is broken down in the stomach and small intestine, the remainder will pass through to the large intestine, which completes the digestion process. The break down of food in the large intestine is when flatulence occurs.

The bacteria in the digestive system becomes used to our normal diet and is able to 'cope' when breaking down the foods it is used to. When a person eats more than usual or eats different foods, then the bacteria have to work harder to break down this food and produce more gas in the process.

Foods which contain insoluble fibre such as cabbage, beans and cauliflower, take longer to digest and will therefore produce more wind. Any food containing carbohydrates will also cause flatulence to varying degrees.

The most common cause for flatulence is swallowing air as every time that we swallow, air is taken into our stomach. By gulping drinks or eating too fast, more air is swallowed. Often this air is released as a belch, but if the air passes into the intestines, it will be released as a fart.

Answer:

As food digests it decomposes because of the acids in our stomach. This forms gas. Some foods cause more gas than others. It has to go somewhere. Up or down, there is more room out than there is in!
