Farting can be embarrassing and smelly so most people want to avoid it at all costs. Since it’s a bodily function it can feel like an impossible task but rest assured that you can minimize your farts.

Going to the bath regularly can prevent the buildup of gas in your body and thus prevent farts from happening.  It will also help keep the intestine track clear of food matter.

There are so many stories where people think they are going to fart and poop instead or vice versa. It’s far better to do that in the privacy of a bathroom rather than to do it in public.
