How many times a day does the average person pass gas?

A Answers (1)

  • A Dr. Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answered
    The average person passes gas about 14 times a day (Howard Stern's guests were not included in statistical analysis). We all produce 1 to 3 pints of gas daily, and less than 1 percent of it smells. So passing gas is really nothing to be ashamed of, unless it comes in the middle of a job interview or during your wedding vows.
