David3 No need for anyone to be without farts. We believe in fairness.

There must be a huge difference in peoples digestion. When I ate meat I would have to try and run from rooms because I'd have the silent but very deadly gas. Every meat eater I know will warn people when they've eaten steaks, or ribs, or chicken wings.
As a vegan, I go "pfft", and the worst it's even smelled was like opening a tupperware lid of cooked cruciferous- and immediately closing it up, because it quickly disperses. I've never had a poop that smells strong enough to rise into the room. I've endured many meat eaters in our work rest room, sometimes having to hold my pee till it cleared.

I don't understand why this stereotype persists since every one I know agrees meat is worse for gas than veggies or beans. Well, for some they agree on beans. They never bothered me

Joan Kennedy Fart-wise there are days I think I'd be giving the cow a run for her money. And that my car could run on it with a little re-jiggering.

Want to Help Fight Climate Change? Try Eating Some Beans



Quote:
In 2016, Americans each ate an average of nearly 56 pounds of beef. Those demands on livestock end up increasing greenhouse gas production, since cows emit methane in large quantities.

But a less expensive and more healthful alternative to beef is something that most people associate with gas: beans. A team of scientists publishing in the journal Climatic Change say that a nationwide effort to swap beef with beans could help the U.S. meet more than 50% of its emissions goals by the year 2020.

Some good stuff in this article, the parts about eating bugs and kangaroo farts are unfortunate though.
