Answer: Choking occurs when a piece of food or some other object gets stuck in the airway. Chicken, fish bones, and pieces of meat that have not been chewed properly get stuck in the throat easily. If you have been drinking alochol, you risk of choking is even greater because you may have been careless about chewing food well. Thanks for asking.
Answer: When someone chokes the object lodged in ones throat can be anywhere in the esophagus depending on what the object is. If for instance food or and other object travels down the windpipe it would be either stopped by the narrowness of the pipe or the vocal cords or "voice box" would catch it.
Answer: Well, you may not believe this but eating food is associated with choking on food. OK, we all have to eat, so the next thing is reduced sensitivity of the throat. Typically, a person -- a cigarette smoker -- in a steak house is drinking. He takes a large piece of meat, chews a little, it moves back in his throat and he tries to swallow (automatically). He chokes when the piece of meat is too large to be swallowed. Why drinking -- reduces reflexes and cuts sensitivity. Why smoking -- it cuts sensitivity of the throat. So live long by not smoking, not drinking too much (ha), take small bites, and chew thoroughly.
Answer: Have food in the danger zone (40-140 degrees F) for a max of 4 hours, especially high protein foods like meat & dairy. And make sure to wash everything, even if you are peeling it (the knife or cutting board can get bacteria from the peel on them and then transfer it to the food).
