Six Years after you swallowed the gum

We all know gum doesn't stay in your stomach 7 years. Nobody believes that anymore. But how long does it take for gum to digest? Turns out it doesn't digest at all. You might as well swallow a marble. In a manner of speaking. Plus, it's not true that humans only use 10 percent of their brains. It's just that so much of the gray matter is occupied with stuff like this.

Our online database the eLibrary (Electric Library) provided this information.

So, how much of our brains do we use?
