What Would Happen If You Swallow Chewing Gum? Does chewing gum get stuck in your throat or stomach? Or in your intestines?

To understand the phenomenon of the chewing gum better, let us start with its history. It has, in fact, been around since ancient times! It turns out people in Northern European have been chewing on birch bark, great-grandmother of chewing gum, 9,000 years ago. It gave them pleasure and helped to relieve toothaches.
Something chewing gum like was called chicle, and the ancient Maya and Aztecs just loved it. However, only children and single women could chew it in public, while men secretly used it to clean their teeth. Now that’s interesting. Today we no longer have to hide it, but who knows, if it’s a bad or a good thing.

SUMMARY
The best advice we can give you is chewing on your gum for as long as it has that amazing flavor, and then just spit it out! Don’t believe every myth you hear, stay healthy and safe.
What actually happens inside your body when gum is passing through? Your saliva will be the first to try and save you once the gum gets in. Then, your digestive system will do its best to protect you. Your liver will help to remove the coloring to prevent allergies. Your stomach will use hydrochloric acid to break down sweeteners, flavoring, and the sticky base. Then, a couple of days later, the remnants of the gum will find their way through the intestines and out of your body.
