Why do I burp?

Burping is not necessarily a sign of disease. If the lower end of the esophagus (food pipe) is somewhat loose, swallowed air will not remain in the stomach when you eat. When swallowed, food will replace any air which is already in your stomach; the air then comes up into the esophagus and makes a noise as it escapes.
