St. Patrick’s Day: A Darn Tootin’ Time

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If your St. Patty’s Day (Mar. 17) party starts to turn into a stinker, there may be a reason why.

Though traditional Irish fare makes for an authentic St. Patrick’s Day celebration, gastroenterologist Dr. Patricia Raymond says dishes like corned beef and cabbage turn the bowels into stinky blow horns.

She says, “Cabbage is terrible for gas. It produces really smelly and noisy stuff.”

Corned beef is no better, and combined with cabbage creates toots so potent that it’s practically impossible to deny what you supply.

Luckily, Irish revelers have one stool saving grace.

Dr. Raymond says Guinness beer served at room temperature has very little carbonation, so drinkers can chug-a-lug without worrying about nasty farts or burps ruining the party.

However, fizzy green beer is a whole other story, so it’s best to avoid it if possible.

To help prevent St. Paddy’s Day parties from turning into a blast in a bad way, Dr. Raymond recommends taking a charcoal capsules like CharcoCaps to ease cutting the cheese.
