they did a special on a tv show called myth busters. but sadly i cant remember what happened. all i know is that it is not healthy to swallow too much gum. i dont think it would hurt u but over time i think it builds up in your intestins and can cause health problems later down the road if it blocks them up to much!

i remember being young i was always very careful about swallowing gum because someone would tell me.. they don't dissolve until 10 years later. they just stick to your organs. but at the same time.. i don't know if people wre just telling me these kind of things just to scare meee!!

I'd be careful then. I'd check out the mythbusters on that, as well as see online, but yeah, it takes a really long time for your body to completely digest the gum, so I would not recommend swallowing it.

However, unless you're a compulsive junior, I think you'll be okay regardless of the gum you swallowed.

I used to swallow my gum alot, most of the time on accident. I'm not sure what it does per-se but it would be good to know for sure. I'll have to research that. Hopefully it doesn't cause any problems for me later that I'll have to have surgery to have them removed. That alone sounds painful, and expensive becuase its dealing with your esphogus. I was told when i was younger that if you do swollow your gum its not a horrible thing because it would eventually break down. But now you never know, i'll have to check that out.

i really dont think anything bad happens to you if your swallow your gum. simply because they did a thing on myth busters and it said it wouldnt stay in your system for 7 years it showed that it came out. i think its an old wise tell that people used to tell their kids so that way they wouldnt swallow the gum simply because it could become a choking hazard to little kids so when you scare them they do not wanna do it.
