Is it true that your spit helps stop bleeding?
or is this a wives tail
This idea is based on the fact that animals lick their wounds. They do that because in the wild it is the only thing they CAN do. The only good it does them is to keep the wound relatively clean; humans have better ways to accomplish this.
Saliva starts digesting food I doubt it stops bleeding.
This is not true. The only way to stop bleeding is to add pressure to the affected area.
Wives tale... applying pressure stops bleeding, and air helps clotting.
it's a old wives tale
It might actually be an ole husbands tale..but in either event, it's silly...;-)
I spit on someone once and my nose started bleeding.
