I was watching a show on Animal Planet that said bulldogs fart because they swallow more air than dogs with a longer snout.
That started me thinking...
If you're chewing gum you're incorporating air bubbles into the saliva that you swallow. It would seem like gum chewing would give a person gas. I wonder if that's why some doctors tell post ops not to chew it. Most grown people have sense enough to chew gum without swallowing it and pluging up their stoma.
Can you tell I have some extra time on my hands today?
