Why are Bully Sticks good for dogs, but rawhide isn't?

I know rawhide has some chemicals, but I thought the main thing that's bad about rawhide is how it can get jammed in a dog's intestines. Someone said it can do this because it gets so wet and gummy after it's been chewed.

So...bully sticks *also* get wet and gummy when they get chewed. Why are they still considered healthy and safe, but rawhide isn't when it seems to have the same physical characteristics?

bully sticks are....um...meat? Muscle? Tendon? (a bull's boy part ;) )
The techincal term is "pizzle", but I always say penis because I so rarely get to say penis in polite company. Penis.

You're right about them being digestible, but they are still a choking hazard; I take them away from my dog just as they approach a size they can be swallowed.

Moderators, please don't ban me. And penis.
