A lot of things can cause "blimpage"! Sodas, drinking thru a straw, sometimes just sleeping/snoring with your mouth
open/swallowing air; chewing gum, and definitely the foods you eat... like beans... just like any normally plumbed person.
I haven't been drinking sodas. Gave it up over a year ago. Once in a while I might drink part of one, like at Wendy's, etc, over a lot of ice. I cannot tell you what a difference it is for me. I really notice the blimpage action now. OJ does it to me also. I noticed it the other morning when I had eaten a bowl of cheerios with a lot of milk right before I went to bed after skipping supper. Not good to skip meals.
It's another investigative opportunity! Let's see what others say.
