Gas Normal, Author Says; Often Treatable
BY PATRICIA ANSTETT

Let 'er rip, America; flatulence is exploding. It's in new medical books for millions of people with the problem. It's the not-so-silent theme of a popular series of children's books called "Walter the Farting Dog." And it's the topic of a new Web site (www.trafon.com) that encourages open discussion about gas and that is updated monthly with seasonal and sporting event twists.
I was heartened to learn that it is completely normal to fart 10-20 times per day. Once you've read the article you might have some fun with this. My favorite is the plant killer.
