why will swallowing small amounts of saliva over time cause death?

Because Lung infections can kill you.
when you go to a hospital emergency room.....
there's a stabbing patient, a gun shot victim, a broken arm, and an asthma patient.
who do they take FIRST?
The asthma patient. Ya know why?
Because if you are NOT breathing......then it doesn't MATTER what else is wrong with you............everyone else can WAIT.
Breathing emergenices, cannot wait.
I remember being taken to Bellvue in Manhattan once, and there was a jammed packed ER, and a guy sitting there, with a knife sticking out of his neck.....bleeding all over the place........and they took me FIRST......because I couldn't BREATHE.
I remember the look on the guys face as they wheeled me in, like..........
"you're f***** kidding me, right?????? " I got a KNIFE in my NECK here!!!!!!!!
but he was okay.,.....not losing A LOT of blood....... and the knife wasn't cutting off his wind pipe or anything..........so mehhhh, he was fine.
If he wanted faster service.....he should have passed out, and said he can't BREATHE.

If you have a weakened swallow/cough reflex some saliva will enter your lungs, bacteria will multiply, and you'll contract pneumonia.

I have been doing that for 66 years. Eventually, we all die of something. Gulp!
