Ever heard of the Crunch Effect?


Ever heard of the “crunch effect”? I have read many times that eating while watching TV, listening to music, or any other distracting activity wasn’t a good idea.

I ran across an interesting article written by Yvette Brazier on the Medical News Today website attempting to explain the reasoning behind this.
