Let’s face it, what would you do without your tongue? You wouldn’t be able to speak, drink or taste. Distinguishing the taste between good and bad foods, it helps us to identify poisonous or spoiled foods before we swallow them.

It’s also the only muscle in the body that works without any support from the skeleton.

 

That being said…..
