Is it true that if you swallow gum it stays in your digestive tract for 7 years?

No because if it was true I would have gum in my digestive tract for many many years.

No. Gum goes through your system just like the rest of your food.

I was told it can build up on the end of part of your digestive system and cause you problems later in life if you swallow too much of it. But that might not be true. My mom told me that.

No. Of course not. It comes out in your poo if it doesnt digest.

7 or more! That is a scientific fact. Gum does not get digested like other food. In fact, it clings to your intestine walks and can obstruct the natural digestive process... Listen to mom!
