Why are you farting alot?

Farting happens because bacteria in the digestive tract produce hydrogen or methane gas as a waste product of their own metabolism. Different foods have different effects on these bacteria. Beans notoriously produce gas because they include a kind of carbohydrate that human beings don't digest, which therefore becomes a rich source of food for bacteria. Onions often stimulate bacterial gas production as well. For people who are lactose intolerant, lactose (also known as milk sugar) creates a huge amount of gas because the lactose intolerant person cannot digest it (due to a lack of the lactase enzyme) and therefore the bacteria do. If you have problems after drinking milk or eating other dairy products, you are probably lactose intolerant.

Kraft says there is o lactose in their Mozzarella cheeseIs this true of all Mozzarella Cheese?

They say it has zero GRAMS of lactose (At least on the cheddar sitting in my room). Aged cheese doesn't have much lactose in it, but pretty much all cheese has some. In fact, even Lactaid Ice Cream which claims to have no lactose at all has some in it. So while any aged cheese will have little enough lactose that even many lactose intolerant individuals will be fine as long as they don't overindulge, but I imagine the amount in the cheese is low enough so that they can claim it doesn't have any.
