Greenville Man's Invention Offers Answer To Flatulence

— A Pitt County man believes his solution to combat the sound and smell of intestinal gas is ripe for success.

The GasBGon cushion offers a sound filter, which muffles the sound and diffuses the outburst. It also has an activated carbon material inside, which absorbs the odor.

Jim Huza said he is not just full of hot air. The engineer said he may be onto something.

"We've been written about all over the world, and it proves our premise that second-hand flatulence knows no borders," he said.

The cushion can be used by those who may have health issues such as irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease.

"We've provided them a solution, and they get their life back is what a lot of them are saying," Huza said.
