Why aren't people 13 + allowed to bite pills that they take for medicine?

ive always hated swallowing pills and wondered why cant we bite them.

The reason may be because the pills are meant to be broken down in the stomach and then released slowly into the blood stream. Thus for these pills, they should not be bitten but should be swallowed whole so that they can gradually be broken down in the stomach.
