Why do we fart

Report as

Inside your intestines there are billions of tiny little bacteria that digest your food for you. They break the food down into component nutrients that your body can absorb, and they keep a little for themselves. Well, they fart. I mean, in the chemical breakdown of your food there is always a little gas given off - co2, methane, etc. Well... all those microscopic bactria farts add up. And when enough gas pressure has built up inside you, you fart.
If you didn't you'll swell up and explode.

To release excess gas. Same reason we burp as well. Holding on to that gas will cause severe pains and bloating.

Because digesting food produces methane gas and it has to escape our body somehow.

Because if we didn't, we'd explode at around age 35.
