Hello, I'm eating a full day meals but not chewing properly which people says that we have to chew 35 to 40 times. i'm only chewing it 10 or 15 times and then swallow directly. So kindly suggest me it's good or bad for health.

Hye. Soft fruits and vegetables will break down more easily than chicken or meat, so you will need to make sure you chew your food as thoroughly as possible. You should chew softer foods 5-10 times, and more dense foods (meats/vegetables/roti) up to 30 times before swallowing.
