IU in the news

Some myths likely originated with mom
Augusta Chronicle, April 13 -- If you swallow gum, it will stay in your stomach for seven years. While the origin of this myth is obscure, it was undoubtedly a mom who just didn't want her child eating gum. It is the sort of thing, though, that can really stick in a child's mind (if not really his stomach) and conjure up images of an ever-growing rainbow ball of gum clogging up his insides. And it obviously is not true, said Rachel C. Vreeman, a fellow in children's health services research at Indiana University School of Medicine and Riley Children's Hospital. Full story.
