Question

  • Why can you not taste food properly when we have a cold?
  • If we were to say that ''digestion begins in the mouth'', how would you explain this. Write.


Solution

  • We are not able to taste food properly when we have a cold because the senses of smell and taste are very closely connected and since our nose gets blocked when we have cold we are not able to smell and taste food.
  • It is said that digestion starts in the mouth because the saliva present in the mouth helps to breakdown the food into smaller units and it also helps in digesting the sugars present in food.
