Cause #2: Gas

There are two sources of gas in the gastrointestinal tract. The first is from the bacteria that inhabits the intestines and the second is swallowed air as one eats or drinks. The stomach can easily become bloated if air is swallowed during rapid drinking or eating.

The body will then remove these gases through burping or passing gas. Burping is the removal of gas from the mouth while farting occurs through the anus.
