Can swallowing chewing gum kill you?

Only if you're doing it while walking off a cliff!

no, it just takes a long time for the gum to be broken down by the stomach acids so it takes longer to digest.

Bladerunner (Dave)

But chewing gum these days is made from synthetic material.

Childhood urban myth

if that were the case a lot of us would already be dead

No, No, No,

Little brew
no, only if you choke on it!

cheryl l
here is no way you think the amount of people that has swallowed it , it just dnt fill very good as it seems like it is stuck in ur throat so noooooooooooooo

well im still here I swallowed loads asa kid lol.so NO

Only if you choke on it when there is nobody around to give you the Heimlich.

dnt b daft, silly...lol

No, but there is a old wives tale, that if you swallow chewing gum, it stays in your system 7 years - but it can bind you up - sould not suggest it.

Andrea S
i have been doing it for years now and i am still alive.

Only if you choke on it. Although they should put it in larger print (hard to get on smaller wrappers) May cause constipation if ingested. If chewing more than one piece (increased risk of chocking) keep out of reach of young children below the age of 5.
Its the little things isn't it:-)

If it's large enough and your throat is small enough, then yes it can kill -- by choking you or blocking your intestines (that has to a huge glob though).

tony m
Only if you swallow 56 pounds of it at once


only as much as a sweet can!

Of Course Not!!!!

Don't Know
Don't know

suhaib m
no... but it is not recommended to swallow

I dont know that it can kill you, but I remember being told that you cannot Digest-It very well, so it's not a good thing to do. I dont know how your body deals with it.

patricia b
no its a old wives tale from years ago thats what my mum and gran used to say and i said it to my chilldren but as far as i know its bull unless yyou choke on it when you swallow it

ha ha, no of course not. It processes like everything else you eat.

bin doin it 4 years and i'm fine

nope. I'd be dead then, we all swallowed our gum for various reasons, not to be caught chewing, etc. My siblings and I swallowed so much gum it's a wonder we didnt blow bubbles out the other end!

Mick B
Depends if you choke on it or not.
I dont think a company would be allowed to sell something that is meant to go in your mouth if it was gonna kill you if you swallowed it.

if it can, I should be dead by now.

Scooter Girl
If it did I would have been dead years ago.....

Almost everyone has swallowed a piece of gum at some point. But very few people ever need to see a doctor because of it.

Chewing gum is made up of the gum itself (called gum resin), preservatives, flavorings, and sweeteners. The human body is unable to digest the gum resin. But swallowed gum does not stay in the stomach or cause intestinal problems. That's because our bodies move most materials that can't be digested (like gum) through the digestive system and out of our bodies in a bowel movement.

In rare cases, swallowing a large mass of gum, or many small pieces of gum over a short period of time, can block the digestive tract. Blockages in the digestive system are most likely to happen when gum is swallowed along with other indigestible things (like sunflower seed shells).

Although people cannot digest gum resin, they can digest the things that have been added to chewing gum, such as sweeteners or even medications (think of the nicotine Gum used by people trying to quit smoking). The body absorbs these just through the act of chewing. This is where chewing gum can affect a person's health: When a person chews a lot of sugary gum, the calories can add up.

if it does than i guess im living proof of walking dead. i swallow my gum all the time. it just comes out the next day in the same form it went down.
