Swallowing pills as nature intended

MagazineDecember 1998 (Vol. 9 Issue 9)Swallowing pills as nature intended

I was rather surprised to read in WDDTY (vol 9, no 4 ) that someone had problems with stuck pills. People I know do swallow pills whole, but surely a person enlightened enough to read WDDTY would not. I have always thought it very wrong to swallow a tablet of chemicals to dissolve against my stomach lining. I crush all tablets between two spoons before filling the bottom spoon with water and swallowing the mixture. All capsules are opened and emptied into the spoon.

Nature intended that all things swallowed should go down mixed with saliva and going against nature is always wrong. M Stoker, Surrey...........
