Gum's not digestible, but it passes through harmlessly for most adults.
Not children though, they have smaller intestines and should not block it.
I don't know why someone would swallow that stuff though regularly, that's weird since there's no advantage to doing so.
I've been wondering if he's doing it as some sort of appetite suppressant, to fill his belly so as to maintain his weight. That would be a legitimate use I suppose.
I would make going to the bathroom take a LOT of toilet-paper.
You know what is really shocking?
People swallowing indigestible cellulose in various so-called "foods".
So do you chew the gum until no flavor left or you spit it out earlier than that? I need some guidance.
Swallowing your gum is better than dropping it on the pavement or sticking it under your desk or chair
Sugar free gum can mess with your bowel movements, apparently.
Sugared gum is better for that reason
There is no problem for people of any age swallowing gum. It's an old wives tale that can be ignored.
I'm surprised PR doesn't know this.
