Uvula-The most important among the uvula functions in the human body is speech articulation and preventing food from entering the breathing passage. Uvula problems can alter its functions in the body, and therefore it is very important to take good care of it. The uvula functions along with the back of the throat, palate, and air coming up from the lungs to produce gruff and other sounds.
