When I was about 5 years old, my dad told me to be careful when chewing gum because if you swallowed it, it would get stuck to your stomack, and never come out. When I would accidently swallow my gum I would think to myself that I would have a belly full of gum by the time I was older.

My parents told me that having too much candy, or particularly gum, would rot my teeth. I thought that it would instantly turn my teeth into the yellow rotten things I saw on posters at the dentist's office.

I still don't chew gum.

I was told that if I swallowed gum that it took years and years to digest. And when it finally did I would be constapated for a long time because of it.

my dad told me a long time ago that if i swallowed gum it would go into my lungs and keep me from breathing! of coarse i have no clue why he told me a story to make me not want to swallow gum but it sure worked for a couple of years. by the way if u push your nose while you swallow gum it helps you swallow =) thats a fact!

When I was 8 years old I use to chew bubble gum and swallow it because I didn't know where it would go. Then my teacher took me that swallowing gum will stay in my stomach and know I 'm 9 years old and I'm spliting out my chew gum in the trash. And for my teacher thank God we have internet.

on chewing gum,

I think it was a thing in our hometown because not only my brother and family, but all my friends parents said the same thing. It takes 7 years to digest gum. It just slows everything down in your system and you will become deathly ill. I think I actually believed this until I was graduated.

My mother would get us to spit out our gum before we went to bed at night by telling us if we insisted on chewing our gum in bed, it would turn into skeleton bones in our sleep! We all believed this and promptly spit it out!

When I was really small, I had this little friend who thought that Starburst was gum. She'd put a piece in her mouth and chew it for a few seconds and then take it out and give it to her mom. I was only three, but I thought, "Gosh, this girl is dumb." She thought I was going to die from swallowing it.

When I was about 5 and started chewing gum, and sometime I accidentally swallowed it, I used to believe there were 2 rods inside my stomach to wind up the swallowed gum: one for the pink gum and another for the white gum (there wasn't all sorts of gum colours back them. The gum would be rolled up around the rods as cord. It's terribly stupid, I know. I was 5, see.

When I was little, my sister told me that if I swallowed chewing gum, or just any lollie without chewing it, I would die. I remember a teacher handing out lollies. Then I swallowed mine and I was nearly crying. I'll never let my sister forget that.
