why do we fart in your sleep

Apparently I keep my partner awake by farting a heck of a lot in my sleep. I always thought that usually bodily functions (like sneezing and needing the loo) tend to shut down at night so we can get enough rest and recharge. Going to go to the doctors next week but could this be linked to a sleep disorder as I am constantly tired and I have had blood tests done and everything has come back fine. I am altering my diet to see if it helps but generally I eat healthily.

I don't like beans so it won't be that (lol)

It is now a broadly adapted and highly variable crop, cultivated around the world primarily for seed, but also as a vegetable (for leafy greens, green pods, fresh shelled green peas, and shelled dried peas), a cover crop and for fodder.

A fart is made up less than 1 percent of the chemicals that stink, but a fart chemical is so pungent that people can smell them at levels of 1 part in 100 million. A study has proven that, when men and woman have eaten exact the same food, woman have more concentrated gas than men.

This was also mentioned as a greater odor intensity. An Indian tribe in South America called the Yanomami, use farting as a greeting. Just say Hi. If you fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb. SCUBA divers cannot pass gas at depths of 33 feet or below. In ancient Japan, public contests were held to see who could fart the loudest and longest!

The female Southern Pine Beetle farts a pheromone called frontalin which is used to attract a mate.
