A University Professor Claims Farts Can Leak Out Through Your Mouth If You Hold Them In

New research by Nutrition and dietetics professor, from the University of Newcastle, New South Wales, Clare Collins proved that the body can reabsorb the gas if not released and it can escape through the mouth!

Everyone farts! It's a natural process of one's body but every single person on earth doesn't let the air puff freely from their bottom that can be problematic for some.

Clare Collins, the Nutrition and dietetics professor wrote an essay for The Conservation where he elaborated the new phenomenon of gas. He explained that the gas can apparently be reabsorbed in the bloodstream if not released; finding no place to go, it will escape out of your mouth.

He gave this warning,

Trying to hold it in leads to a build-up of pressure and major discomfort.

A build up of intestinal gas can trigger abdominal distension, with some gas reabsorbed into the circulation and exhaled in your breath. Holding on too long means the build-up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart.

Collins continued, "The research is not clear on whether the rise in pressure in your rectum increases your chance of developing a condition called diverticulitis, where small pouches develop in the gut lining and become inflamed – or whether it doesn’t matter at all."

The regular process in the body produces gases as a by-product of fatty acids that aid in immunity and prevent disease development.

Holding the gas for so long can cause a build-up of pressure and terrible discomfort that may result in an eventual escape via an uncontrollable fart.

Meanwhile, the research on the very topic is still ongoing whether the rise in pressure due to controlling fart can develop a condition called diverticulitis. Hence, it's always good to move to a more acceptable location and let it rip.
