1. Tyra Banks

One in five American adults struggles with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a condition that triggers gas, bloating, cramping, diarrhea and constipation.  TV show host, diva extraordinaire Tyra Banks is one of them.

As Banks explained to Janet Jackson on an episode of her talk show, "I'm very gassy, but I feel like I can telegraph my farts … if it is going to be funky, I'll let it out and I'll be like 'Dang! Who did that?'"

Researchers suspect IBS is caused by poor diet, food intolerances, medications, overgrowth of bad gut bacteria, and abnormal serotonin levels in the intestines—yes your brain isn’t the only organ that secretes this chemical, which acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain and a hormone in the gut.
