If something makes us feel uncomfortable, either as protagonists or as simple witnesses of the suffering of others, it is the gases in the stomach. You know them, you've suffered them ever in your life, and that's why you do not want to be affected, but you may wonder: Why do I have gas?
Annoying, unpleasant and decidedly inopportune, gases that accumulate in our abdomen They are one of the worst torments we sometimes have to face. Even as a result of days of joy, party and fun, as in the celebrations of December.
The gases that accumulate in the abdominal cavity occur for several reasons, and manifest as an unpleasant sensation of fullness or swelling, which is relieved, momentarily, in the form of belching or flatulence, according to specialists Larry Szarka and Michael Levitt of the American College of Gastroenterology .
Of course we all produce annoying stomach gas. Under normal circumstances people expel gas 10 to 20 times a day on average.
Among the main causes of the air that is swallowed are soft drinks, chewing gum, drinking with straws and chewing with the mouth open.
