How often do people pass gas?

You can up your flatulence frequency by munching on more dairy and wheat products, vegetables, and of course, beans. The average person passes gas about 14 times a day. We all produce 1 to 3 pints of gas daily and less than 1 percent of it smells. So passing gas is really nothing to be ashamed of, unless it comes in the middle of a job interview or during your wedding vows.

The most common causes of increased gas are “lifestyle” factors, such as smoking, chewing gum, and the particular foods you eat. This isn’t always bad, and many people note that they have more gas when they introduce healthier foods into their diet. By looking at your habits and assessing what you eat and drink, you may be able to prevent some of the episodes or at least be comfortable knowing that they are normal.
