The breaking of the wind - is it good or bad?

A study done in New Zealand studies the merits or not of holding flatulence in or "letting it rip" as it were.

But isn't it always better to give than to receive?

Talking Everything you never wanted to know about breaking wind on a plane

'Tis Saturday and you may enjoy this article about breaking wind on a plane.

The interesting findings are women's smell worse than men's, flight crew are advised better out than in, and it may impare cabin service - ie the crew won't come near you!! Ha! As if they needed scientists to tell us that!

You would be amazed at the number of older ladies who 'keep it trapped', only to end Up in severe abdominal pain. On one occasion, having requested the paramedics, the medic leant over to the lovely lady in question and asked a simple question. "Have you trumped my dear?"
"Lord no!"
"would you mind visiting the toilet and giving it a go?"

A few minutes later, a relieved and cured patient emerged.

There are some things you don't know, and there are other things you wish you didn't know.

However, all knowledge is useful … possibly

They could add that sometimes the engine sound doesn't cover loud farts. And you haven't got away with it.
