Burp! Excuse me. Does this happen to you some time? Yes? Well this is what we call burp. A burp or a belch is nothing but gas. It comes from the air that we swallow while eating or drinking.

These gases need to get out if you swallow them and that’s where you burp. Drinking soda or carbonated drink makes you burp even more. Do you know why? Well, it is simply because these drinks contain a lot of gas. Eating or drinking too fast also can make a person burp because it sends extra air into the stomach.

Burping is normal and you can say it happens every day. However, it is not polite to burp loudly in public or in front of other people. So it always good if you try to burp quietly and cover your mouth at the same time followed by ‘Alhamdullilah’ or ‘ excuse me’

Extra gas is forced out of the stomach, up through the esophagus and out of the mouth as a “burp”
