Can you die from holding in a fart?

At the end of the day, the limited research suggests that holding in a fart will not be your cause of death (unless you’re that rare case of a critically ill patient with a severely obstructed colon). Technically, you could die while you happen to be holding in a fart–but that would be correlation, not causation. And a terrible way to go.

A “Dutch oven” is, on the face of it, not a derogatory use of “Dutch” as this usually refers to a heavy cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid, but is also a brick oven where the cooking is done by the pre-heated walls, and a metal shield for roasting before an open fire.

Fibre and flatus

In a study on dietary fibre and flatus, researches investigated what happens to intestinal gas production when you put people on a high-fibre diet.

The researchers got ten healthy adult volunteers to eat their usual diet for seven days while consuming 30 grams of psyllium a day as a source of soluble fibre, or not. In the psyllium week, they were asked to add 10 grams – about one heaped tablespoon – to each meal.

Not the best choice if you’ve been holding on. By GoodStudio

At the end of each week, the participants were brought into the lab and, in a carefully controlled experiment, had an intra-rectal catheter inserted to quantify how gas (in terms of gas volume, pressure and number) moved through the intestine over a couple of hours.

They found the high psyllium-fibre diet led to longer initial retention of gas, but the volume stayed the same, meaning fewer but bigger farts.

The real danger is an obstructed colon

The only reason to be seriously worried about holding in a fart is if you have a severe obstruction in your colon. With that sort of blockage, the fart build-up essentially causes your colon to blow up like a balloon–as this video from Brainiac illustrates via cartoon. Thankfully, you shouldn’t worry about turning into a balloon on your next first date. This scenario only happens with critically ill patients, and it’s rare even then, says Dr. Lisa Ganjhu in Women’s Health.
