What Would Happen If We Didn't Fart?

Episode 11 of 13

The truth about food. The Gastronuts cook very farty foods, catch their trumps in a swimming pool and see the effects of not farting for a week.

Farting is an essential part of human digestion but it always provokes embarrassment or laughter. So what would happen if we were to try and stop ourselves from parping? The Gastronuts put theory into practice by cooking up the world's fartiest foods, catch their trumps in a swimming pool and see what a whole week's worth of stored up wind would do to the human body.
