Sometimes we hear from elder that we should not talk much while eating. But why? Is there any scientific reason behind this?
SCIENTIFIC REASON: We have digestive tract and respiratory tract in our body. Through digestive tract food enters and through respiratory tract air enters to lungs. These two tracts runs parallel to each other and they are very close to each other. But if any food particles enter respiratory tract, it may lead to choking(বিষম). 
     So for this, the opening of respiratory tract is covered by a flap like structure called epiglottis. 
But when we talk while eating there are chances that epiglottis may open. So food particles may enter respiratory tract. It may cause choking. Sometimes serious choking may lead to serve conditions. 

That's why often we are asked not to talk much while swallowing or eating.
