This is a delicate topic, but one with which I felt compelled to deal. There are a number of reasons for this and I'll try to explain them, hopefully without offense to anyone. All of us suffer from the problem at one time or another. Research shows that this time of year is the busiest in terms of the F-word.
The F-problem can cause great inconvenince as well. On December 6, 2006, an American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing when flight attendants smelled smoke. A resulting search and interrogation of passengers resulted in a female admitting to having lit a couple of matches to cover the odor of her passed gas. (Talk about dropping the F-bomb!)
There are products available on the market that eliminate fart odor. The website http://www.takeawhiff.com/ offers such a product. (I apologize for having used the four-letter F-word!) I felt I should share that information, so no one else 'lights up" while in the skies!
The sad news I have for all you young 'uns out there is that as we age, flatulence becomes more of a problem. Foods that may have had little or no effect on you in your youth may not be tolerated by your digestive system as easily, and your intestines have a way of making their discomfort known.
