I tend to swallow my chewing gum (I believe it’s referred to as just “gum” in some countries). Recently a certain person was upset with me for doing that, in the belief it is an unhealthy habit. Today I went back to my habit of swallowing my chewing gum.
If anything I’ve heard it just leads to a slight laxative effect. But my companion at the time seemed to this it was a very bad thing to do. What’s the consensus on this?
