There have been many experiments done with chewing gum. After you watch 6 science experiments with chewing gum, you may be motivated to try an experiment for yourself.
1. Swallowing experiment
Of course, gum is supposed to chewed, but have you ever wondered what happens when you swallow your gum. This experiment shows what happens inside of your body when you swallow your chewing gum. The next time you are about to swallow you chewing gum, you may think twice.
