We’ve all heard this as kids… “don’t swallow your gum, it will stay in your stomach forever!” But is that actually true?
According to this guy… not really. As an autopsy technician he says the only gum he has come across in the stomach has been recently chewed or swallowed.
So even though it doesn’t stay in your forever, probably not a good idea to go swallowing gum all the time. It must still be hard to digest and work through your system.
