Ask Dr. T: Do Men Fart More than Women?

Dear Dr. T,
Do men fart more than women each day, on average? Or are women just not owning up to it?

(It’s been said that on average, men fart an average of 17 times a day, and women fart an average of 9 times a day.)
Dr. T’s Answer:
Yes, it’s true. I honestly don’t know why. It could be diet, bigger GI tracts, and/or swallowing more air.
So there it is ladies and gents. Men do, on average, pass gas more often than women. That is of course when we’re comparing men and women with normal colons. Now in the case of a semicolon or someone else with some IBS/GI-stuff happening… yeah … it’s a whole different ballgame.
A big thanks to Dr. Taormina from Midwest Gastroenterology for helping answer our “Ask Dr. T” question today.
