Oh No! Did you swallow your gum?

Don’t worry. If you swallow gum, it won’t get stuck in your intestines for 7-years and trigger health problems. Research shows that gum – just like any other food – gets broken down by stomach acid, and the body absorbs the sugars and flavorings. The sticky gum base does stay intact, but it’ll pass out of your system within one or two days, just like any other hard-to-digest food.
