Food doesn’t need gravity to get to your stomach

Our body can move our food through the digestive system even while we are standing on our head. It is not connected to gravity because it works with muscles.

Yes, you heard it right- we can eat Upside down. Food doesn’t need gravity to reach our stomach. When we eat something, the muscles in our esophagus constrict and relax in a wavelike manner, which is called peristalsis and pushes food along the esophagus and into the stomach. It’s difficult to eat upside down, but it’s possible.

Where will the food go if you eat it while hanging upside down why?

Yes. Even if we eat food while hanging upside down, it will go through the alimentary canal because of the process of peristalsis. The muscles of the oesophagus will push the food downward in a wave like action throughout the alimentary canal.
