More about Boron and Sulphur

    Good sources of Boron


    Good sources of Sulphur

fresh unprocessed vegetables like garlic, onions, cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. 
MSM is also found in meat, fish, poultry, eggs and milk (milk for example contains between 2 and 6 parts per million)
onions are especially rich in sulphur. 

When we fart, the gas emitted is methane, hydrogen sulphide, and mercaptans which also contain sulphur.  We need lots of sulphur to make smelly farts. For example, eggs, onions, cauliflower. But not all at once please. 

In fact you can tell the sulphur content of the food by the smell factor of the fart.  

In contrast, baked beans produce lots of wind but little smell, because the gas is made by fermenting of the sugars in the beans, not from hydrogen sulphide gas production.

Incidentally, the smell associated with faeces is called Skatole. It is a specially fetid smell that apparently is a vital ingredient in some food flavourings, for example, ice cream.
