Researchers in New Zealand have sent a message to the airline industry that it’s OK for passengers to battle changes in cabin pressure by letting go of some of their own pressure – by passing as much gas as they want to.
In a report titled Flatulence on Planes: Just Let It Go, the professors make the cheeky claim that internal turbulence could be hazardous to flyers, who tend to have more intense intestinal problems in mid-air than on the ground.
Their advice? Break wind right into the head wind. But, just to be safe, one note in the study does note that “proximity to other passengers may cause conflict and stigmatization of the flatulating individual.”Article Source
