whAt will happen if we accidentally laugh while eating or drinking

If we laugh while eating, there is every possibility that food particles may enter into the windpipe in place of food pipe. This result in vigorous coughing and breathing trouble may also occur.

Sometimes when you eat in a hurry, talk or laugh while eating, you may cough,get hiccups or a choking sensation. This happens when food particles enter thewindpipe. The windpipe carries air from the nostrils to the lungs. It runs adjacentto the foodpipe. But inside the throat, air and food share a common passage.Then how is food prevented from entering the windpipe? During the act ofswallowing a flap-like valve closes the passage of the windpipe and guides thefood into the foodpipe. If, by chance, food particles enter the windpipe, we feelchoked, get hiccups or cough.

When we eat food very quickly we can get a choke. So sometimes the food enters the foodpipe accidently thats why if you are eating with a elder they will always say you don't talk while you are eating.
