Thats the explosive news from gastroenterologist Dr. Patricia Raymond, who says traditional barbecue foods may leave you needing to free some farts this Independence Day.
According to Dr. Raymond, greasy grub like hot dogs and hamburgers will give you smelly gas, and adds, anything with cabbage, like cole slaw, will kick your rump. And if you eat that three-bean salad, youre doomed.
To avoid gassy mishaps, Dr. Raymond says chomp on some grilled chicken and potato salad, but make sure the potatoes arent potent.
She explains, If the potato salad has been baking in the sun all day, then youll get food poisoning, and youll wish you had gas.
If youve absolutely got to let one go this Independence Day, you can be extra patriotic and time your toots to the fireworks finale, or be discreet, and not make a big stink about it.
She says, If your great Aunt Edna bends over and rips one off, just remember shes human, and everyone does it.
