Is there any relation between age and the frequency of flatus? I often have this feeling that older people f*** more often than younger ones. Is this feeling scientifically correct?
I do not have access to journals, but there is this paper claiming in its abstract that age DOES NOT play a role in flatus frequency.
Could be that age has an effect. As humans age three important factors, with respect to this question, change:
Immune system flexibility and its response to even minor disturbances and infections.
Gut microbiota composition.
