Does gum really take 7 years to digest in your stomach?

Nope, that’s just a myth. In fact, our stomach doesn’t digest gum at all! Since it’s made out of soluble fiber, chewing gum passes right through us. So gum comes out with the rest of your waste, usually a day or two after you eat it. Although you shouldn’t swallow chewing gum, it is not considered harmful.
