#1 – Chewing Gum Stays in Your Body for Seven Years!
Many adults still believe that swallowing chewing gum is borderline poisonous because it hangs around in your body afterwards. No one is sure where: children tend to believe it sticks to the ribs, while adults imagine years’ worth of gum will appear during their next colonic irrigation. The truth is that the body can’t really digest chewing gum, so it simply allows it to pass through. If you swallow chewing gum, it will go harmlessly through your digestive system and out as nature intended. No harm done, but it’s still fine to spit it out as long as you use a bin.
