Von Miller said the Broncos have a fine system for, um, flatulence in meetings. Said he thinks he's been fined the most. — Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) June 3, 2015
Since I've received numerous inquires about the Broncos' Fart Tax, I'm gonna let Von explain. NFL dieting ain't easy. pic.twitter.com/OTAAaI8t82 — Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) June 3, 2015According to Men's Health, it's bad for your to hold your flatulence in.
If you’re sitting in an all-day meeting, don’t resist letting one loose: Gas is air trapped in your body, so it has to come out sooner or later, says Dr. Bechtold. And while the odor itself isn’t like milk spoiling—growing stronger with time—holding back one fart now may lead to you letting three rip at once. (And that includes not only the power of three, but also the smell.) To top it all off, trying to hold gas in can cause significant bloating and discomfort in your stomach, says Dr. Bechtold. So do yourself a favor, and let it slide when you first feel it. It may be uncomfortable for a minute, but it’ll be a lot more awkward when the whole meeting comes to a pause from smelling your 3-hour buildup.
