All my friends and I believed that if we swallowed bubble or chewing gum - it would wrap round our hearts and we would die - lovely thought!!!! We also had a teenage neighbour who had a hole in her heart and was told that it was because she had swallowed chewing gum when she was young!!!

When I was small, I thought if you swallowed gum it just fell down and stuck to one of your lungs. I was not the brightest when it came to the inside of humans' bodies.

I grew out of this belief at age 8.

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.

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!
