States with the highest bloating statistics include Vermont, with 74% of participating residents reporting bloat symptoms, followed by Nevada and Arizona, with 71% reporting bloat.

Vermont was also at the top of the list for gassiness, with 73% reporting gas symptoms, followed by Kentucky and Kansas at 62%. However, the report did point out that maple syrup is not known to cause gas, potentially saving Green Mountain State residents from even greater intumescence. 

Enigmatically, Arkansas was the least gassy and bloated, coming in at 37% gassy and 46% bloaty. And that is where the source of the study should receive a second helping of scrutiny.

Arkansas' five favorite foods are listed as 

  1. Cheese dip
  2. Chocolate Gravy
  3. Fried Pickles
  4. Arkansas Possum Pie
  5. Arkansas Delta Tamales

No matter what, in Vermont, even gas and bloating fit under our motto of Freedom and Unity.
