    No, it's just normal as other food you put into your mouth then swallow.

    Though your stomach can't break down a piece of gum the same way it breaks down other food, your digestive system can move it along through normal intestinal activity (in other words, it comes out the other end.

    Yes, it's hard to digest & stays in your body for a while.

    It's not harmful, but if you're worried, stop doing it.
