Eli5: If I drink a bunch of soda/pop/la croix/beer, where do the bubbles go?



Carbonated beverages, or nitrogenated for the Irish, how does the body process those gasses?

In: Chemistry

Well the bubbles are made of CO2. This as you may know is a chemical your body naturally produces. These bubbles have three ways to leave the body. First is to be burped up. Second is farted out. Finally it can be absorbed through your guts into your blood where it is exhaled just like the CO2 you produce naturally.
