Everyone flatulates—some more than others. It is a natural part of the digestive system, occurring 14 or more times per day as wastes putrefy. You may want to consider intervention by a medical doctor or nutritionist if you are exceeding 25 times daily. Despite normalcy, expelling gas around others can be embarras­sing or considered rude.
