Got Gas?

It’s estimated that 20 percent of the United States population, or 60 million people, suffer from one or more medical disorders that cause flatulence. That’s a lot of scented candles and extra-strength Febreze®.

Luckily, now there’s a new product from Flat-D Innovations, Inc., that claims to solve this dilemma for sufferers around the globe. (Apparently, gaseous emissions afflict more than just us 60 million Americans.) 

The Flatulence DeodorizerTM Pad is an activated charcoal cloth pad that is worn taped inside your underwear. The manufacturers say that it’s comfortable and “perfect for use on car rides, airplane trips, or for long days at the office.” They also claim that users can “celebrate their freedom from malodorous gas with this extremely inconspicuous pad.”
