What the fart? Why passing gas is good for you! 😂
I remember when my grandmother was alive, it seemed like every time she stood up she would pass gas. It wasn’t a stinky fart, just loud and what I thought was inappropriate. I would give her the side eye and then moan “mom”, she would turn and look at me like “WHAT?”. 😒
The boys were young and they would crack up laughing, but if we had visitors I never thought it was funny and would give them that “don’t you dare” look. 🙅 Years have since passed on and so has she, which by the way, she was 98 when she passed! I have only recently learned that passing gas is actually good for the body.
If you have been reading my blog for a while then you know that my hubby was diagnosed with small intestinal cancer and although he never had any symptoms, he always did have gastrointestinal concerns. So much so that he started getting colonoscopies in his early 40’s.
It was very difficult for him to eliminate waste and when he did it was oftentimes very painful! He had used every over-the-counter and prescribed stool softener and laxative on the market but nothing helped. 💩😰💩
After each annual colonoscopy the diagnosis was the same, “you just have a slow digestive system, no blockage or reason to be concerned”. Little did we know that cancer was growing inside his small intestines.
