“Everybody farts, yes,” Dr Faraz said as he warned his TikTok followers of the dangers of holding in a fart.
“Don’t hold in your farts. The average person farts 20 times a day,” the GP continued. “Gas forms naturally in your stomach as a waste product of digestion.
“It gets mixed with air that you swallow when you eat and drink.”
Dr. Faraz continued: “If you hold in a fart, you can cause yourself heartburn, bloating, and pain.
“The gas could come out as a smelly burp or make your breath stink.
“Imagine doing a burp that smells like a fart.”
Dr. Karan Raj, another doctor has more than 2.7 million followers on TikTok, explained why it is important to brush your teeth before breakfast and not after.
“You’ve got to brush your teeth before breakfast, not after. Brushing before breakfast coats your enamel with a protective barrier against acid in your food – all that orange juice you’re guzzling down,” he said.
“It also helps you jump-start saliva production which helps you break down food and naturally kills harmful bacteria in your mouth.
“Brushing your teeth after breakfast can actually cover your teeth in the remnants of acidic food, and this can actually weaken your enamel.”
In another clip, Dr. Raj explained why people shouldn’t make their beds as soon as they wake up.
“Making your bed in the morning traps dust mites that have accumulated over night. These microscopic predators, which are less than a millimetre long, feed on the scales of human skin and thrive in moist environments,” he said.
“When we sleep at night, our bodies become warm and sweaty, making them prime targets for these mites to feed on.
“They will leave behind excretions which can give us asthma or allergy-like symptoms.
“So making your bed in the morning traps all this moisture and provides a home for 1.5 million of these bad boys.”
