What happens when you swallow chewing gum?


Answer by  debichance (160)

When gum is swallowed it does not break down as normal food does, however your digestive system will move it along through normal intestinal activity.

Nothing, the acid in your stomach is so strong that is dissolves it and you just pass out the gum in your poo

Swallowing a piece of chewing gum can block the digestive tract. It is said that it stays in your stomach for years, but that is merely a myth that was made up.
