Your science tip of the day ... Don’t hold in a fart … because it will eventually come out of your mouth. That’s right, a new study from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles reveals that holding in your gas isn’t just uncomfortable, it can actually get re-absorbed into your circulation and end up escaping out of your mouth. No, not from a burp – but from your breath. Yikes. Talk about bad breath! Not only that, but the research even found that if you hold it for too long, it can basically erupt uncontrollably -- making you really wish you had snuck away to use the restroom when you had the chance. While letting things rip whenever and wherever isn’t really possible, researchers say you should excuse yourself to a restroom or somewhere unoccupied and private and relieve yourself instead of holding it in for a long period of time.
