inhaled some food into my lungs

is this dangerous? i was eating some triscuits today, and i breathed in a few crumbs. normally it wouldn't bother me, but one of the crumbs was like the size of a pea. i feel fine, but i'm a little worried about this. what happens to food and water that get inhaled? does it just sit in your lungs for the rest of your life?

Re: inhaled some food into my lungs

it can be dangerous. its called aspirating and if you do it enough you could get pneumonia. im not sure if you inhaled enough to do any major damage, so i advise you to find out some more information i would not worry too much at the moment though
