Natives Raised Eating Legumes:Unaffected by Gas?

I dare ask this question in the CH community because I feel comfotable that it will be taken seriously and in stride. I have been eating/cooking alot of South Indian food lately, which is a cuisine dominated by legumes/dal. And I have simultaneously been experiencing a lot of gas. The same thing happens when I eat alot of Latin bean foods and Japanese tofu dishes.
So I'm guessing that when a people is raised from babyhood eating these foods, they are not afflicted with gas. Does anyone actually know about this? Thank you.
