In this article you’ll know about things you use to do while eating that is dangerous to your health.
Blowing Air To Your Hot Food
The danger of blowing the hot food and drinks can be explained scientifically. We know that steam from the hot drinks/ food is water vapor H2O (aq), right?. When we blow the drink/food, we release CO2 from the mouth. We’ll see according to the chemical reaction, the water vapor reacts with carbon dioxide to form carbonic acid compounds (carbonic acid) that are acidic.
Many of us are not aware of the importance of maintaining the acid/base balance of our blood. It is vital to our survival. Normal blood pH is set at 7.4, which is slightly alkaline or “basic”. If the pH of our blood drops below 7.2 or rises above 7.6 then very soon our brains would cease functioning normally and we would be in big trouble. Blood pH levels below 6.9 or above 7.9 are usually fatal if they last for more than a short time. Another wonder of our amazing bodies is the ability to cope with every pH change – large or small. There are three factors in this process: the lungs, the kidneys and buffers.
Fix: Wait till your food is warm to the stage that you can eat it before eating so you won’t need to blow a hot food.
Eating Too Quickly
Wolfing down your food, whether you’re snacking or eating a meal, doesn’t give your brain time to catch up with your stomach. Your brain doesn’t signal that you’re full until about 15 to 20 minutes after you’ve started eating. If you gulp down your meal in 10 minutes or less, you could end up eating way more than you need. In a study of 3,200 men and women, Japanese researchers found that eating too quickly was strongly associated with being overweight.
Fix: To slow down your eating, physically put your fork down between bites, take smaller bites, and be sure to chew each bite thoroughly. Also, drinking water throughout your meal will help you slow down and feel fuller as you go.
