Beer (and other yeasty things)
Drinking beer releases carbon dioxide gas, which builds up in your gut and subsequently… is not great for farts. Additionally, fermented foods, pickled foods, and alcohol in general can cause bloating, cramps and excess gas because of yeast overgrowth. Our bodies have yeast in our intestinal tracts, but too much yeast can be unhealthy and rather pungent.
So the next time you get offered a nice steak with a side of onions and a glass of milk to wash it all down, think of the ramifications -- for yourself and others.
