This is what we were told when we were little children. Thanks for posting!
This vid was great for me as it answered a lifelong question for me. When I had my tonsils out when I was a wee one, there was a girl in the hospital room with me. I was told she was in the hospital because she had to have a huge ball of gum removed from her stomach. The story was she swallow her gum and it never digested. I was so scared, when I did chew gum, I never swallowed it. Then in adulthood I totally swore off gum altogether. Did any of you ever have fears about gum?
