How Long does Gum Take to Digest?

There is a well known myth that states that gum can stay in the body for seven years, but this is not true. Every individuals body is different, including the digestive system. The general rule is that most food is digested between 24 hours and 72 hours. However in some extremely rare cases, and with some insane amounts of gum, it was proven that gum could block up the digestive track.
