Why Gas Happens

Last night, after eating our supper, I had a bad stomach trouble. I went out just to look for my medicine but unfortunately there was no medicine at the store nearby so I went back home without medicine. It wasn’t really bad so I just ignored it. When I was sitting here in front of my computer, I kept on farting, as in loud and clear lol but there was no smell and every time I released gas, I fell better. How many times did I fart, many, many times until Janjan told me to run at the toilet while laughing at me because he taught that I need to sit there inside and I told him that it was only a gas pain and there were gasses to my stomach maybe because of the food I ate. I explained to him that perhaps my digestive system didn’t work to break down the food I ate and gas is the leftover product when those foods sit in our colon. Portions of foods that can't be broken down and digested by the intestines travel to the colon, which is full of bacteria. The bacteria in our colon ferment these undigested particles of food, resulting in gas, burping, and flatulence. Well, I am not sure if Janjan understand it when I explained this to him last night. When I went to bed, I still had the gas pain but it was not really bad at all.
