Quote from: neilep on 28/11/2006 23:37:03Is swallowing chewing gum bad for you ?Does it get digested ?...if not ..why not ?A single chewing gum is not bad, but many at the same time it is: it's problematic for intestine to eliminate it, it probably couldn't move it easily.It's not digested (completely) because we don't have enzymes able to dissolve the gum part of it.
Dear me I have swallowed tons of chewing gum in me life.. On occassion I still do...Must stop!LOL
I'm sure that we swallow bigger things than gum!
