I totally swallow

My gum. I think spitting it out is a dirty habit and I hate seeing people spitting, it is such a turn off. Makes me cringe. I was in a doctor's office once and the trash bin was right beside me and a lady nicely dressed came and spit her gum out into the can with such force that I jumped. Gross. Can people not be discreet about discarding this treat? If you can't swallow, at least use a tissue.

I cannot swallow my gum, even if i wanted to. I have trouble swallowing pills even. So I throw my out, I wouldnt spit it into a garbage in public, goodness. Even if you don't have a kleenex the least you could do is place it nicely in the garbage!

Is it true that gum stays in your stomach for 7 days when you swallow it? My boyfriend swallows his gum and I always tell him that.

I have heard that it comes out in your poo....and I am not one to sit there and examine mine SO I really don't know how long it takes or if it comes out or what. Yuck! Maybe I will go buy some brightly coloured gum and see how long it takes to come through.

You are going to grow a gum tree in your tummy if you keep swollowing. Gum cannot be digested and its really hard on your stomach.It just keeps trying and trying and trying-like when your chewing. Grab a tissue and be done with it!

I am pretty sure it just passes through as does any other undigestable pieces of food.

Mr. Bill always swallows and it just makes me want to gag. I don't know why, probably all those years of my mom telling me it would stay in my stomach for 7 YEARS! LOL
