^^ I have to agree. I hadn't thought about it before but it makes sense. I've always been THE slowest eater with any comapny. That's because I chew my food a LOT. Dunno why, just have always been like that. Even when I (used to) drank a milksake/smoothie with yoghurt, and now, fruit smoothies, I've always chewed my smoothies. Or applesauce, yes, I chew applesauce. Now that I think of it, even before swallowing juice, I kind of swill it around my mouth a little before. It's just what comes naturally. And you know what? I've been hearing from a lot of people that eating a lot of freash fruits/veggies causes this problem for them, while I've never had that problem, not even now that I'm transitionning into raw foodism. So maybe there's truth to this saliva/chewing theory!
