Why do we fart?

We fart because we have swallowed some air for instance from chewing gum, smoking, having loose-fitting dentures and sucking on pen tops according to British National Health Service. Now apart from the air we swallow, the air we expel is as a result of the gasses produced by bacteria in the intestine during digestion. Intolerance to certain foods and mal-absorption of some food too causes farting. A smelly fart is not a bad thing o, in fact it is gathered that healthy eating makes it smell worse.
