When we talk of table manners, we are not literally saying tables with manners (lol....) what we are saying here is the way you compulse yourself while eating, many people have the bad habits of talking while eating while, this very dangerous to your health. You should not cultivate the habits of talking while eating, the reasons are not far fetched, this, and other reasons why you must have table manners will be discussed below:



1. YOU MUST NOT TALK WHILE EATING

REASON: Food can easily enter your vocal cords and caused severe peppery sharp pinch and it can possibly damage your vocal cords. 

2. YOU MUST ALWAYS PUT WATER BESIDE YOU WHILE EATING. 

REASON: As discussed above, food at anytime may enter vocal cords and impede the mode of your speech and if you are eating peppery foods especially, then you may easily damage your vocal cords or even die as a result. Water eases the pepper that enters your vocal cords and makes the pains subsides. 

3. SIT WITH YOUR BACK FLAT TO THE CHAIR & THE TABLE NEAR TO YOUR CHEST. 

REASON: This is the best sitting manners while or before eating, stop the habits of bending your backs to eat, this habits are mostly common nowadays, it can be seen at event gatherings, clubs, canteens, or cafeterias, bending your backs while eating may slow down the peristaltic movement of food and also slow digestions.

4. PUT ON AN APRON/GET YOURSELF A MINI TOWEL & PUT IT ON YOUR CHEST WHILE EATING

REASON : No one does this again, though some wealthy homes still adopts this measures but because of our hungry nature for food, who cares to get an apron before he eats, which is totally bad, having a mini handkerchief/towel can prevent splashing of oil drops on your shirts especially when you are out for a social gathering, you won't want to embarrass yourself now!!

5. WASH YOUR HANDS VERY WELL BEFORE & AFTER EATING

REASON : This a must adopt measure you must always take cognizant of. Microbes are everywhere, on your palms, skins, air, water, food, only those that are beneficial are the ones you are saved from. If you don't wash your fingers, hands properly, you can easily contaminate yourself with opportunistic food contaminant microbes, such as Bacillus cereus_, _Campylobacter jejuni_, _Listeria spp_, _E. coli_, _Yersinia enterocolitica_, _Pseudomonas spp, Staphylococcus spp_, and so on, all these organisms listed above are those of the very dangerous harmful microbes that if ingested due to your poor sanitation, then it can be very harmful to your G. I. T (gastro Intestinal tract) and in rare cases if not treated on time may leads to death. So you must wash your hands properly with soaps, sanitizer and rinsed off with clean water before and after eating.
