Men on a predominantly plant-based diet pass more gas than men who eat a meat-based diet, a study has found. The findings indicate that the participants eating primarily vegan food have healthier gut bacteria and better colon health. 

The study

Researchers assessed the role of diet in gut and digestive health, which included looking at stool health and the amount of flatulence experienced. 

There were two dietary groups: a low-fat, fiber-enriched Mediterranean-type diet (FMD) or a high-fat Western-type Diet (WD). The FMD is high in vegetables, fruits, and legumes, among other plant foods.
