New Delhi: Salman Khan was cute when he did it in "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam" and Omi Vaidya`s "Silencer" got all the laughs when he let it off in "3 Idiots". But flatulence, as the many millions who suffer from it will tell you, is not funny, just embarrassing.It`s abdominal bloating, also known as "breaking wind", "passing wind" or, "farting". A problem that most experience and few talk about openly.Caused by reasons such as overeating, consumption of difficult to digest foods like milk and rajma and other health problems, the audible discharge of intestinal gas is annoying to say the least.According to dietician Anushree Sinha, avoid any food item that "belongs to the legumes plants family", whose characteristic fruit is a seed pod. Black chickpeas, peas, rajma and the like "contain trisaccharide (a carbohydrate) like stachyoses and raffinoses that are not easily broken by intestine, hence not easily digested and as a result leads to gas formation", Sinha told IANS.It can be avoided with just a little bit of care.ExerciseDaily exercise and the consumption of at least eight glasses of water on a regular basis help in food digestion and prevent abdominal bloating.
