Breaking wind while in the company of others might seem like the height of rudeness — it was even ranked one of the worst house guest behaviors by a UK survey — but one enterprising TikTok doctor suggests that letting it rip is absolutely essential because, otherwise, the farts could come out of your mouth. NHS surgeon Dr. Karan Rajan’s video describing the flatulent factoid currently boasts over 2.5 million views on TikTok thanks to its shocking reason. “If you hold in a fart too long, it can be reabsorbed into your bloodstream and breathed out when you exhale,” @Dr.karanr explained in the revolting clip, in which he rattled off various fart facts in response to a viewer’s request. Therefore, in order to prevent a ca-gas-trophic buildup, it is necessary to cut the cheese as much as possible.
