P.C Do You Know

Have you ever tried to breathe and swallow at the same time? No? Try it now… What do you observe?

Yes, it is impossible to breathe and swallow at the same time! Do you know why? Read more to find out…

Your breathing system is closely linked to your digestive system… The air you breathe and the food you eat travel down through the same muscular tube and then part ways.

When we swallow, our airway is automatically closed by the vocal cords which makes it impossible to breathe.

If a healthy person tries to accomplish this impossible feat forcefully, it may be dangerous and can lead to complications. So it would be better if you don’t try it out often!

Did you like this fact? Do you know any such fact? Write it in the comments section. I’ll be posting more such facts on every Friday. Till then, take care!
