    Just a myth: to wit, people make beans pass gas . . . by eating them.

    Not a myth. It is a well known fact.

    It's true! Mexican food has lots of beans and so it's bad for that. Vanessa Marcil is bad for it. Her mother's family name is Marcil, and her father's is Ortiz, so she's 1/2 Mexican. I've seen several videos of her farting.

    Not a myth. Many edible beans, including broad beans, navy beans, kidney beans and soybeans, contain oligosaccharides (particularly raffinose and stachyose), a type of sugar molecule also found in cabbage. An anti-oligosaccharide enzyme is necessary to properly digest these sugar molecules. As a normal human digestive tract does not contain any anti-oligosaccharide enzymes, consumed oligosaccharides are typically digested by bacteria in the large intestine. This digestion process produces gases such as methane as a byproduct, which are then released as flatulence.

    Beans, beans 

    the mythical fruit. 

    The more you eat,

    the more you toot. 

    The more you toot, 

    the better you feel. 

    So, let's eat beans

    for every meal.

    Certain types of beans can increase the likely hood of getting gassy.  

    Eat a large serving of pinto beans and let us know if you still think it is a myth.

    Nope, beans are very high in fibre and fibre helps you fart.
