Here’s What Actually Happens When You Swallow Your Gum

Gum is meant to be chewed — but sometimes accidents happen.



Maybe it went down with a gulp of water…or maybe there just wasn’t anywhere to spit it out.

And you’ve probably heard that swallowed gum stays in your stomach for seven months or seven years or some other absurdly long time.



And you've probably heard that swallowed gum stays in your stomach for seven months or seven years or some other absurdly long time.
Gum-swallowing myths were super popular when you were a kid. And chances are you still kinda believe whichever one sounded most plausible back then.

So what actually happens when you swallow gum?

BuzzFeed Health reached out to gastroenterologist Dr. Lisa Ganjhu, D.O., associate professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, to find out what exactly goes down in your digestive system when you swallow your gum (and if it’s actually bad for you).

Basically, gum passes through your body just like any food — but it doesn’t get completely digested.

“Your GI tract is very strong — if it can digest a tough steak, it can digest gum,” says Ganjhu. So you have the strong gastric movements and the acids and enzymes to break the gum down. The only difference is that the base of gum doesn’t get dissolved completely because of its chemical properties, and also the contents don’t get absorbed into the small intestine like most foods, says Ganju.
“Once it’s in, it’ll go out like everything else. There is no specific time frame because everyone’s digestive system motility is different,” says Ganjhu.

So yes, you will eventually poop it out.

So yes, you will eventually poop it out.
No, it won’t stick to the side of your intestines or build up in a giant gum wad or anything like that. Even though it doesn’t fully dissolve, it’ll still become wrapped up in fecal matter and pass through in a bowel movement, says Ganjhu. It’s similar to swallowing teeth (or corn tbh) which can make it through your intestines pretty much intact.
The only thing you’d have to worry about “getting stuck” is if the wad is actually too large to fit through the opening of your stomach from your esophagus, though you probably wouldn’t be able to swallow a wad of gum that big in the first place.

The experts still advise against swallowing gum — but not for the reason you’d think.

“Chewing gum has absolutely no nutritional value so most health professionals would advise against swallowing it,” says Ganjhu. Besides that, the whole point of gum is to chew it until the flavor is gone and then spit it out. “Gum won’t harm or kill you but it just isn’t logical to swallow it purposefully,” says Ganjhu.
And obviously you really shouldn’t swallow a massive wad of gum because it could get lodged in your air pipe and cause you to choke, Gangju says, but that’s the case with swallowing any large piece of food.

TL;DR: gum won’t stay inside your stomach or kill you, but you should still spit it out anyway.

TL;DR: gum won't stay inside your stomach or kill you, but you should still spit it out anyway.
So why is that myth still so popular? It’s probably a misunderstanding of the fact that you can’t fully digest gum, says Ganjhu, even though that means it doesn’t dissolve properly or get absorbed — not that it stays in your body.
“It’s just like the myth that you’ll grow an apple tree if you swallow the seeds,” says Ganju. There are a ton of health myths that just won’t die, and this is one of them.

Besides, there’s always an artist out there who has a better use for your chewed gum…

Like Douglas Coupland’s “Gumhead” in Vancouver, Canada, or the Pike Place Market “Gum Wall” in Seattle, Washington.

Beauty Avocado Is a Food For Your Skin

For sun damaged skin or visible age spots and scarring, use avocado oil as a natural moisturiser. Filled with plant steroids, avocado oil works within the skin to smooth, soften and promote a lasting moisturising effect. In anti-aging, avocado oil has been clinically shown to aid in the increase of collagen in the skin, creating a plumper and more youthful-looking complexion for those with mature skin. Its ideal emollient properties also make avocado oil easily absorbable in skin tissue and can be very beneficial not just to those with mature skin types, but skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry, itchy skin.
Avocado in its natural fruit form is a natural skincare lover's dream come true. The possibilities are endless when it comes to using avocados in skincare. You'll find hundreds of variations of homemade recipes involving avocado as a main ingredient online. One of the most common beauty uses for avocados involves reducing inflammation and puffiness of the eye area. Just applying a peeled slice of avocado

Avocado Soothing Eye Treatment


Apart from being the perfect shape to place under the eye, it is also a very effective treatment! Simply peel an avocado, remove the seed and slice a half into 1cm crescents. Lie down, placing a few slices under each eye, and relax for about 20 minutes.

Avocado Mask for Dry Skin

Always cleanse your face thoroughly before using a face mask. Beat one egg yolk until it is light and frothy. Add the mashed pulp of half an avocado. Blend well. Spread the avocado mixture over your face and neck evenly; lie down and relax for 20 minutes. Remove with warm water and a face cloth. Rinse with cold water or use a mild skin lotion.

Avocado Oily Skin Treatment Mask

Take one egg white, a teaspoon of lemon juice and the mashed pulp of half an avocado and blend to a smooth green mixture in 20 seconds. Wash your face and neck thoroughly, then apply mask evenly on those areas. Relax for 20 minutes; remove with warm water and a face cloth. Follow with cold water or a skin tonic.

Avocado Simple Moisturiser

Using the inside of the avocado peel, lightly massage your face with gentle upward strokes. Let the oil residue remain on your skin for about 15 minutes. If you are planning to apply make-up after your treatment, wash your face gently with three or four rinses of warm water and pat dry. Although not visible, the oil will act as a base to hold your foundation or powder in place for hours. If applying before bedtime the oil may simply absorb into your skin throughout the night.

Avocado Exfoliating Scrub for Rough Skin

Place a quarter of an avocado, one egg white, two dessert spoons of oatmeal and a teaspoon of lemon juice into a small bowl. Blend together and apply evenly to your hands, elbows or feet. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse off with warm water for softer, noticeably smoother skin.

Avocado Hair Conditioning Treatment

Mash one avocado with one-tablespoon lemon juice, one teaspoon of sea salt, and one tablespoon of pure aloe. Mix until it becomes a paste. Comb mixture through hair with your fingertips. Cover your hair with a plastic shower cap or cling film, wrapping a towel around it to seal in the treatment. Leave in for 20-30 minutes. Unwrap and rinse, shampoo and rinse again for beautiful silky soft hair!
Top tip: Avoid harsh soaps, cold cream, or cleansing creams on your skin. Cleansing creams are made from hydrogenated oils, which can cause free radical damage to the skin, resulting in dryness and wrinkles. Instead, use pure avocado oil to cleanse the skin. Pat the oil on, rinsing off with warm water and a soft cloth.

18 Secrets to Make Food Healthier

Experts show how to effortlessly unlock the powers in common foods to help fight disease, lose weight, and more.


Make cooked potatoes diet friendly by refrigerating them.

Make cooked potatoes diet friendly by refrigerating them.
Health Benefits: Cook potatoes or other root vegetables, then chill them for about 24 hours before you eat them. The cooling process turns high-glycemic vegetables into low- or moderate-glycemic vegetables, and that transformation helps keep your blood sugar levels more stable. Even if you reheat the veggies, this trick works. As a bonus, cooking with extra-virgin olive oil helps keep the veggies from slowing down your metabolism.

Thaw your frozen berries in the microwave.

Thaw your frozen berries in the microwave.
Health benefits: You'll preserve twice as many antioxidants and more vitamin C if you do compared to defrosting on the counter or in the fridge. Frozen fruit and veggies have been shown to be better for you than fresh out-of-season produce, since they are picked and frozen when their nutrition is at their peak. Also: Berries are your fiber friends: Ounce per ounce, there is more fiber in raspberries than bran cereals!

Make your salad the day before you eat it.

Make your salad the day before you eat it.
Health benefits: Jo Robinson, author of the upcoming book Eating on The Wild Side, which reviewed thousands of health studies, explains that tearing romaine and iceberg lettuce the day before will quadruple its' antioxidant content. Shred clean greens with your fingers, put in a plastic bag with a paper towel to absorb extra moisture, and keep in the fridge till the next day. Then toss with toppings.

Pick the yellowest ears of corn.

Pick the yellowest ears of corn.
Health benefits: You'll reap 35 times more beta-carotene than white corn! Beta-carotene, a precursor to vitamin A, contains powerful antioxidant functions.

Cook carrots whole.

Poke holes in your broccoli's bag.

Poke holes in your broccoli's bag.
Health benefits: Storing broccoli wrapped in a plastic bag with tiny pricks in it will give you up to 125 percent more antioxidants than if you had stored the broccoli loosely wrapped or in a tightly sealed bag. Use a salad fork to get holes all over.

Buy canned tomatoes over fresh.

Buy canned tomatoes over fresh.
Health Benefits: The most nutritious tomatoes in the supermarket aren't in the produce aisle! Processed tomatoes are the richest known source of lycopene, because of their concentrated state. When buying fresh, look for smaller size and deeper color; you'll get more nutrients. If you have a choice, deep red tomatoes have more antioxidants than yellow, gold, or green tomatoes.

Bake with avocados instead of butter.

Bake with avocados instead of butter.
Health benefits: Over 75 percent of the fat in the versatile "alligator pear" is unsaturated (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, the good kinds) and they'll bring nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients to your baked goods.

Health benefits: Frances Diaz, RD of FITzee Foods shares,"Vegetables like spinach, broccoli, and kale contain lots of iron, but it’s in an indigestible form. So adding Vitamin C to these foods will help your body break it down in to a form that is more easily absorbed by our bodies." Try lemon, lime, or orange.

Store asparagus like roses.

Store asparagus like roses.
Health benefits: Store asparagus upright in a small vase or bowl in your fridge to keep its metabolic activity going, and you'll prevent spoilage while keep the veggies fresher and more antioxidant-rich.

Health benefits: Doing so frees up acids that are linked to certain types of kidney stones formation, according to nutritionist Nicolette M. Pace, MS, RD.

Rub the skin of kumquats before you pop them in your mouth.

Rub the skin of kumquats before you pop them in your mouth.
Health benefits: It's worth finding kumquats to try this out; limonene has been shown in studies to have anti-cancer effects. Aim for about five to get a good dose of vitamin C, carotenes, and lutein; and eat them whole (peel and all) to reap their full nutritional benefits. 

Let your lentils sprout.

Let your lentils sprout.
Health benefits: When legumes like beans and lentils sprout, the grain’s starchiness lowers, and the protein content rises. (Learn how to do it yourself here.) This process not only makes them more nutritious, but also appears to make them more easily digested.

Make beets bite size before cooking.

Make beets bite size before cooking.
Health benefits: Cutting beets into chunks or cooking the smallest ones you can find will aid in keeping their nutrient levels high, since you can reduce cook time (the rich betalin color is highly susceptible to nutrient losses with extended exposure to heat). Try for 15 minutes when steaming, and 45 max when roasting.

Everything you need to know about natural skin care

It turns out magnificence is more than shallow: The normal individual slathers, foams, rubs and splashes, 10 distinctive healthy skin items on his or her body each day- - and since our skin demonstrations more like a wipe than an obstruction, we retain the almost 130 chemicals we frequently open ourselves to. Beautifying agents organizations and the FDA keep up that these chemicals are sheltered, and a considerable lot of them are- - in little measurements at any rate. Be that as it may, consider that the normal lady wears cosmetics consistently, and you start to see how a little spot here a fast shower there starts to include. The truth of the matter is, nobody truly knows how certain chemicals influence us after some time, or how they respond in our bodies in blend. Different chemicals have known threats: Phthalates, for instance, which are frequently found in counterfeit scents, are a class of hormone disruptor which can be connected to birth deformities, sperm harm, fruitlessness, and the feminization of child young men, for example.

Right around 90 percent of the 10,500 beautifying agents and healthy skin fixings known not U.S. Nourishment and Medication Organization have not been assessed for wellbeing by the Corrective Fixing Audit, the FDA, or some other openly responsible establishment, as per the Ecological Working Gathering. To be reasonable, nobody's dropping dead after an utilizing a mascara wand or a body wash, and makers have an enthusiasm for making items that don't hurt their clients. Be that as it may, complex chemicals with potential obscure reactions lead us to take after the Prudent Rule. That is to say, on the off chance that we'd like to blunder in favor of wellbeing until we know. We're by all account not the only ones who feel along these lines: More than 1,110 individual item fixings have been banned for use in makeup in the European Union in view of worries that they may bring about growth, birth imperfections, or regenerative ills. By difference just 10 are banned here in the U.S.

On the accompanying page, you'll discover our manual for picking the most secure, nontoxic items for your skin, and also how to distinguish the most poisonous fixings you ought to control your shopping basket clear of.

Step by step instructions to green your magnificence schedule


Try not to be tricked by corrective promoting: Myriad creams, moisturizers, and elixirs at the drugstore and beautifying agents counter make guarantees they would never convey on. (Trust us, all the extravagant items on the planet will never turn the tide of maturing.) Eye creams, for example, once in a while change in detailing from your essential facial lotion. Our proposal is to keep it straightforward: All you need is an essential chemical, toner, cream, and expansive range sunscreen to keep your skin fit as a fiddle. Everything else is simply dressing.

Ensure "Characteristic" Is Really Natural

Poisonous manufactured chemicals are the greatest issue in the magnificence business today, so it pays to sharpen a sharp eye with regards to looking at item names. For instance, it's irrational, however lamentably, the words "regular" and "all-characteristic" are not managed marking terms. An incredible asset is the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database site, which rates well known beauty care products and individual consideration items with peril scores on a size of 0 to 10, contingent upon their harmfulness.

Say No to Fragrance

An escape clause in government law doesn't oblige organizations to pronounce any of the many dangerous chemicals that a solitary item's scent blend could contain. Fake aromas, which every now and again contain phthalates, can likewise trigger hypersensitive responses and other wellbeing issues. Be aware of the concealed risks that "aroma" or "parfum" recorded on fixings marks can posture, and dependably pick scent free items.

Pick Nontoxic, Recyclable Packaging

You can never turn out badly with glass since it's recyclable and has no risk of filtering poisons into the item contained inside. To the extent plastics go, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), likewise known by the reusing code #1, and high-thickness polyethylene (HDPE), #2, are most much of the time acknowledged by city curbside reusing programs and are viewed as protected; polycarbonate (#7), may filter the endocrine disruptor bisphenol-An, or BPA. Polypropylene (#5), another sustenance safe plastic, is additionally a decent option, however less effectively reused. (To discover a polypropylene recycler in your neighborhood, visit

Stay away from compartments that bear reusing code #3 and the letter "V", which alludes to polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. Named "the toxin plastic," PVC postures incredible natural and wellbeing perils from production to transfer. Notwithstanding discharging hydrochloric corrosive, growth bringing on dioxins, and other constant contaminations into the air, water, and land amid its creation, PVC additionally contains added substances and concoction stabilizers--, for example, lead, cadmium, and di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (a suspected cancer-causing agent that is known not a large group of conceptive and formative deformities)- - that can drain, drop, or off-gas from the plastic for the duration of its life.

Ask How Company Values Stack Up

A skincare organization is more than the total of its items. Shouldn't something be said about its rationality and qualities? Going by a site is continually illuminating; TreeHugger has likewise expounded on numerous excellence and individual consideration organizations. Does the organization test on creatures, for instance? Has it marked the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, a vow to expel hurtful chemicals from fixings records and supplant them with more secure choices? How dedicated is it to lessening its effect on nature?

Pick Organic Beauty and Grooming Products

Natural fixings are those developed without engineered composts or pesticides, which is more beneficial for the planet and more advantageous for our bodies. Even better are botanicals developed utilizing biodynamic cultivating techniques, which go past natural by stressing a considerably more comprehensive relationship between the dirt, plants, and creatures. The USDA National Organic Program has been confirming individual consideration items since 2003, and an expanding number of natural skincare items now bear the USDA natural seal. To tell if an item is biodynamic-affirmed, search for Demeter U.S.A's. blessing on the mark.

Evade the Petrochemicals

Used to make emollients for face cream or found as coal tar for scalp-treatment shampoos, petroleum side effects can be sullied by tumor containing debasements. A nonrenewable and naturally disagreeable asset, petroleum scarcely have a place in your auto, let alone on your skin. Distinguish it on marks as petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraffin.

Make Your Own Green Skin Care Treatments

The most ideal approach to know precisely what goes into your skincare items? Make your own. Will you spare cash and bundling, as well as get the fulfillment that no additives or dangerous chemicals were utilized as a part of the procedure. You can throw together a basic, compelling face veil utilizing minimal more than nectar and coconut oil, make a vegetable toner, or make a skin break out battling toner with green tea. Also, that is only for one thing. Look at a greater amount of our DIY healthy skin medications to take in more.

Stay Beautiful Inside and Out by Being Healthy

You don't need to depend on a whirlwind of elixirs and creams, synthetic peels, or surgical face-lifts to get crisp, shining skin. Eating routine and activity ought to assume key parts in your skincare regimen, too. Other than working up a decent sweat to keep supplement conveying blood flowing all through your body, make sure to sustain yourself a lot of protein, solid fats, (for example, omega-3 fish oils or flaxseed oils), complex sugars, and organic product. Drinking six to eight glasses of water is additionally a shelter for flushing out poisons that may somehow appear on your skin.

Try not to succumb to colorful patterns

From time to time, a peculiar new pattern guarantees to be the enchantment projectile though your skin couldn't care less misfortunes yet winds up being out and out brutal, whether to you or the planet. The utilization of human and dairy animals placenta concentrates is at the highest priority on our rundown for being screwy and outright insane, particularly since they contain a heap of hormones. Another abnormal practice of the day is the fish pedicure, which includes having many little snacking carp peel your feet in 94-degree Fahrenheit water, a method we're certain is not PETA-endorsed.

Natural Skin Care: By the Numbers

    4 pounds: Average amount of lipstick a woman will ingest over her lifetime.

    11: Percentage of the 10,500 ingredients used in personal-care products that the U.S. government has documented and publicly assessed for safety.
    1,110+: The number of ingredients banned in cosmetics in the European Union.
    10: The number of ingredients banned in cosmetics in the United States.
    600: The number of companies that have signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics.
    20: Percentage of personal-care products that contain at least one chemical linked to cancer.
    22: Percentage of cosmetics contaminated with possible cancer-causing impurity 1,4-dioxane.
    $160 billion: Amount spent annually on skin- and hair-care, makeup, cosmetic surgery, fragrances, health clubs, and diet products.

Natural Skin Care: Getting Techie

1,4-dioxane: A known animal carcinogen and probable human carcinogen, according to the EPA. It's also a byproduct of a petrochemical process known as "ethyoxlation," which involves adding ethylene oxide (a toxin linked to breast cancer) to other chemicals to render them less harsh. More than 56 cosmetics ingredients are associated with 1,4-dioxane, including sodium laureth sulfate, sodium myreth sulfate, polyethylene glycol, and chemicals that end in "xynol," "ceteareth" and "oleth."

Aluminum chlorohydrate An astringent used as a topical antiperspirant or topical body deodorant. Aluminum is a neurotoxin that alters the function of the blood-brain barrier, linking it to Alzheimer's disease and cancer.

Ammonia: A compound used in hair dyes and bleaches. It releases a caustic, pungent gas that severely irritates the eyes and respiratory tract.

Dibutyl phthalate: A chemical plasticizer found in nail polish and mascara that helps prevent cracking. Studies have shown that it causes birth defects and harms male reproductive organs. DBP and other forms of phthalates are also frequently present in fragrances used in air fresheners, cleaning detergents, and hair sprays. A loophole in federal law allows phthalates to be included in fragrances without ever appearing on the product's label, which means that phthalates are more ubiquitous than we realize. A study from scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found 17 phthalates, including DBP, in the bodies of all 2,636 persons they tested. More alarming, however, was the fact that women of child-bearing age, who could conceivably be pregnant and expose their fetuses to dangerous toxins while in the womb, appeared to receive the highest exposures--up to 20 times more DBP than the average person, well above the federal safety standard.

Formaldehyde: A preservative and disinfectant classified by the EPA as a probable human carcinogen. Found in cosmetics such as mascara and eye shadows, formaldehyde can cause nausea, coughing, and asthma symptoms, as well as burning sensations in the eyes, nose, and throat.

Lead actetate: Although banned from use in cosmetics in the European Union, this lead compound, which is a known developmental and neurotoxin, can be found in hair dyes and cleansers in the United States.

Hydroquinone: A skin-bleaching chemical, as well as a possible carcinogen, neurotoxin, and skin sensitizer. In high doses, Hydroquinone can cause a disfiguring skin disease called ochronosis, which results in irreversible black-blue lesions.

Mercury: Used as a preservative and antibacterial agent in cosmetics such as mascara, where it can be listed under the name "thimersoal," mercury can damage brain function even at low levels. Mercury can be found in eye drops and certain imported skin-lightening creams, as well.

Nanoparticles: Largely untested, these extremely minuscule particles are usually undeclared on product labels, even though they can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. You can find them in bronzers, eye shadows, sunscreens, and lotions.

Parabens (methylparaben, ethylparaben, butylparaben, isoparapben, etc.) The most common preservatives used in cosmetics to prevent bacterial and fungal growth. Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which some studies show plays a role in the development breast cancer and urogenital abnormalities.

Triclosan: An antibacterial compound found in cleansers, deodorants and other cosmetic products that is classified by the EPA as a probable human carcinogen. Overuse could also result in strains of drug-resistant superbacteria.

Toluene A solvent and nervous-system toxin found in some nail polishes. High amounts can affect kidneys and cause birth defects. It's also used to dissolve paint and as an octane booster in gasoline fuels used in internal combustion engines.



Keep your cosmetics brushes fit as a fiddle and guarantee the abounds stay delicate and microbes free more. We prescribe washing brushes in any event once every week. Here's the means by which:

Step 1

Pour a gentle family unit fluid cleanser or infant cleanser into the palm of your hand and blend with water.

Step 2

Utilize your hand as a container for the warm, foamy water and whirl brushes in your palm until they are perfect.

Step 3

Wash well, then tenderly press overabundance water from the brush and let air-dry. Try not to absorb brushes the sink. A lot of time in water can relax the swarms and demolish your brush!
