What will happen if you swallow your gum?

I was always told that swallowing chewing gum is harmful to my health. Have your parents told you that it would stay in your stomach for years? The thing is that no one seems to actually know what really happens.


Imagine it’s just happened and you’ve swallowed your gum, intentionally or not. Would it stay in your digestive tract forever?

My mom told me. "Never swallow your gum, it sticks to your stomach."

My mother told me the same thing. I never believed it. And, then my daughter swallowed a big wad of bubblegum. I found it in her diaper the next day.

It is one of those old wives tales. Everyone with any sense knows it passes through you with no harm done
