We all know that a Flat-D pad will remove the odor from flatulence. And we know that genetics plays a part in the gas we create. Who needs scientists to figure it out.
After completing a long and detailed study analyzing methane produced by cattle’s flatulence and belching, scientists believe they have a way to reduce its ill effects on the planet, and they have received a Public Library of Genetics Research Prize for their efforts.
A study published in the journal PLoS Genetics last year found that the methane from cattle’s belches and flatulence has the potential to play havoc with the climate, as methane has the potential to generate a warming effect 25 times that of carbon dioxide.
The study said that a cattle’s genetics, rather than diet, determine how much methane they will emit into the atmosphere.
