Holding a fart in for a long time? If yes, then stop doing this habit because it may lead to a serious health problem. Yes, you read right, holding a fart in is not a good habit for anyone.
There might be a possibility that the smell could emerge from your mouth. Holding a fart in make anyone feel uncomfortable but stopping it for long is harmful/
According to the reports of mirror.co.uk, a nutrition and dietetics expert at the University of Newcastle said that there is a chance you may instead breathe it through your mouth instead.
While writing for the Conversation, she said that holding in the trapped wind could cause abdominal distention as some gas in stomach reabsorbed into the circulation which exhaled from the mouth through breath.
The Professor also warned that holding fart in is actually futile.
"Holding on too long means the build-up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart."
The habit of not breaking wind may also lead to a condition like diverticulitis.
However, breaking wind is just a natural thing and completely normal, which should not be hold for long.
She also said that more research should be done into this matter.
