Why Do Farts Smell Bad?

There are a few reasons why farts smell bad.

Food that is high in sulfur makes your farts smelly. So the culprits include beans, cabbage, eggs and broccoli. But these foods are good for you, so just if you’re concerned about smelly farts, be cautious of not eating excessive amounts.

However, Let It Rip believes that a healthy diet should not be compromised, so if you love some of these smelly-fart culprits, fart proudly knowing that your diet includes sulfur – which is something our bodies need!

If you’re still paranoid about the correlation between what you eat and how bad your farts smell, try and reduce the amount of garlic, onions, spicy food and beer, because bacteria in your intestines can turn these foods into nasty smelling farts.

If gas remains in your intestines for an extended period of time bacteria will add sulfates to the combination of other gases – which causes the bad smell in smelly farts.

Intestinal gas includes nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and methane. These are generally odourless except when sulfates are added to the equation.
