Methanogenesis in humans. How/when does it happen? What causes it? Does it happen while we live? After we die? Does lighting a human on fire produce methane?


Thank you

There are bacteria inside certain people’s intestines that can make methane while digesting the food they eat. It happens whenever they’re eating and digesting, although I assume the bacteria will start digesting the person if they die and begin to decompose as well.
