My cousin's mom (my aunt) used to tell her that if she swallowed gum, she would die. My aunt (about 50 years old) actually DOES believes this.

Freaky, I know.

When I was very young my mother told me that if I swallowed a piece of gum it would stick to my heart and make it stop beating. Needless to say, to this day my gum always ends up in the trash.

Someone I knew used to believe that if you swallowed gum it would make a bubble and block food from going into your stomach, thus killing you. Much to my relief, I had discovered eventually that for swallowing gum to be bad for you, you would have to swallow about 7 pieces a day for about a month. I was a weird kid.

When I was young my parents told me that i would die if i swallowed chewing gum. Then one day I accidentally swallowed some and I was convinced I was going to die. For hours I sat on my bed feeling sad and sccared and I didnt have the courage to tell them. I was amazed when I didnt die and then the penny dropped!

My dad didn't like me chewing gum when I was little because I'd always swallow it. He told me that its against the law to swallow gum until you're 16 because you'd die. And being the smart child I was, I educated everyone I saw chewing gum about the matter.

As a child I was told that if I swallowed chewing gum it would stick to my ribs and I wouldn´t be able to breath and die. I guess that's why there is so much chewing gum stuck under school desks!

I used to believe that is you ate chewing gum you'd die so I never went near it. I screamed and cried when my big sister ate it as I thought she'd die! To this day I can say I have NEVER chewed gum.

I used to believe that chewing gum was lethal. When I was a kid, my mom always used to tell my older sister not to give me chewing gum because I might swallow it and die (choke on it). So when anyone did give me chewing gum on the sly, I was always paranoid about swallowing my spit as I thought that the gum created some sort of poisonous juices in my mouth that would kill me.

My primary school headmaster told me that if I swallowed chewing gum, it would stick over the flap on my lungs and I would die because I couldn't breath. I didn't eat chewing gum for years after that.
