The most common cause burping - involuntary swallowing of air. Swallowing air occurs when a person drinks too quickly, eating, and especially if it is at the same time talking. Chewing gum and carbonated drinks may also contribute to the accumulation of gas in the stomach and, as a consequence, belching.
Belching infants normal and even desirable, because they swallow during feeding is much more air than adults.
If children do not regurgitate after eating, accumulated in the intestine gases can then cause a lot of pain, so parents usually specifically cause babies burp. In pregnant women, regurgitation and occurs more often than usual - blame this slow digestion and hormonal changes. Frequent burping can also be the result of many diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, such as acid reflux, hiatal hernia, or deficiency of hydrochloric acid.

An indication of what diseases can be belching
In healthy people, burping is rare. Frequent belching is often a symptom of diseases of the stomach, liver, gall bladder and intestines. Belching may be a leading sign for diseases and conditions involving impaired cardiac sphincter mechanism circuit, located between the stomach and esophagus. Such a condition can occur, for example, diaphragmatic hernia, or after operations on the gastrointestinal tract.

What are belching
Belching is empty (air), food, bitter, sour, rotten, as well as loud and quiet. Eructation air typically odorless and tasteless and occurs by ingestion of air or gas in the increased formation of stomach.
Delayed gastric emptying (eg, cancer or peptic ulcer) arising from this stagnation and decomposition of food in the stomach cause the formation of hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, which give belching foul "rotten" smell.
Belching air together with the food into the mouth comes some amount of gastric contents, which can impart belching bitter, sour and even putrid flavor. Thus, acid regurgitation may occur when the acidity of gastric contents or increased production of gastric juice, and also due to the fermentation in the absence of gastric juice hydrochloric acid. Bitter belching is a result of abandonment of bile into the stomach, and putrid - with long-term stagnation in the stomach and putrefaction of its contents.
