I’ve got to get out more.

I doubt I’m your first stop when you’re looking for information regarding health and fitness. Still, when I think I have something that will benefit you and you need to know, I’ll share it with you. Especially when it’s something that leads to easy, juvenile humor.

According to a study done at Exeter University, in England. Passing gas is good for the people around you. The study says it can help prevent dementia and heart disease in those within the fallout area. It is also found to be healthful for the giver as well as the recipients. Ah, so many questions.

Have you ever filled out a questionnaire about your health? You’re asked if you suffer from any one of a number of medical conditions. Included in those conditions is, “excessive gas”. What constitutes, “excessive” gas? Everyone has gas, so how much is too much? I suspect if you are asking yourself this question, the answer is yes. That’s why, if possible, it’s good to have your spouse go with you on doctor visits. They can clarify any questions you might have on this subject.

Also, when the question, “Do you suffer from flatulence?’, is posed, it raises another question: Your own, or that of others? Somehow, that of others is much more annoying.
