DON'T SWALLOW YOUR GUM!
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
How many times did you swallow
your gum as a child? Probably more than you should have, but were you ever told
by parents or friends that is you swallow your gum it will stick to your ribs?
Or, perhaps you were told that your swallowed gum would take seven years to
digest? This is another silly old wives tale that is simply not true, but still
thought of as fact by children today.
Like everything else that you swallow, gum will go
straight into your stomach and be digested without sticking to anything. Oh, and
gum is digested at the same rate as other foods, it does not take seven years!
Even though the gum is sticky, the lining of the stomach wonít allow anything to
stick to it. So, there are no worries if you have swallowed one piece of gum in
your lifetime, or twenty! Theyíve all been digested straight away!
