i can shoot saliva out the gland under my tongue like a snake shoots venom (it can happen WHEN I YAWN!!!)
seriously! i’m serious … i don’t mean “spitting”
i mean that it shoots out the gland under my tongue like a snake shoots venom!
only when i yawn!
it is said they have “discovered” a previously unknown saliva gland, i think it may be connected?

Also worth noting:
Saliva enzymes help us pre-digest plant food, we chew and salivate for pre-digestion,
a key part of our digestive system.
when we see tasty fruit this is why we salivate, it’s to digest plants
saliva enzymes also react with plant drugs🍀
our saliva enzymes don’t digest/break meat.
