What's so gross about that? One of the enzymes that your saliva contains is called alpha amylase which is responsible for breaking down the starches that you eat into smaller molecules that the cells in your body can use for energy. When your food is not chewed properly, the alpha amylase in your saliva does not have the opportunity to break down these starches, leaving body cells starved.

how did they measure this? you'd starve if you spit it all in a pool. saliva is an important part of digestion . . .

I aim to have more. It's a small life goal but one worth striving for.

From UK medical statistics,the average human produces 2 pints of saliva per day.
365 days = 730 pints = 91.25 gallons.
Google 'average domestic swimming pool' = typically 20,000 gallons. Two average swimming pools = 40,000 gallons.
Divide 40,000 by 91.25 = 438.356 years. Wow! I'd love to live that long!
Alternatively, were I to live for 75 years, 40,000 divided by 75 = 533.333 gallons per year.
533.333 gallons = 1.461 gallons per day.
Divide by 24 hours = 0.48 pints per hour.
It appears that I have too much time on my hands, and an adequate sufficiency my beer in my belly.
Goodnight!
