When I was a kid, my mom used to show apartments to supplement the family income. She’d have showings from morning until night – and my siblings and I loved to play a game of sneaking into mommy’s purse.
We knew that if we got caught it would be disastrous. But that’s what made it so exciting, too!
Once somebody had the gumption to grab an abandoned purse – there typically wasn’t any candy or much loose change. But we really looked forward to one thing: chewing gum!
That’s right – at 4 years old I remember the pure joy of sticking a piece of sweet, minty gum in my mouth.
At that time, people weren’t commonly aware of the chemicals found in chewing gum, diet sodas, or even sweeteners for coffee.
And today, you’ll find that most people are surprised to find out that many of the same toxic chemicals in ‘diet foods’ are also in sugar-free gum!
For years I thought that chewing gum was a great way to curb carb cravings.
Now I find that it’s an addiction I’m desperately trying to break!
Here Are 5 Reasons Chewing Gum May Hurt Your Health… And Your Waistline!
1. Gum Wears Away at The Cartilage in Your Jaw.
If you damage this cartiledge, you may suffer irreparable discomfort for life.
2. Chewing Gum Can Give You Headaches.
Because chewing gum uses facial muscles, the excessive use of chewing gum can strain the muscles that connect to nerves near your temples.
This can cause headaches and chronic pain around your temples.
3. Chewing gum can damage your metabolism.
Because chewing gum requires saliva, excessive chewing of gum requires you to take up the body’s energy making saliva. Now energy that your body needed for other internal activities, such as metabolism and digestion, is being used to produce saliva.
4. Gum is Sweetened With Sugar.
Diets with excessive sugar are linked to obesity, Type II Diabetes, atherosclerosis, and even the breeding of cancer cells inside the body.
5. Sugar-Free Gum Contains Toxic Chemicals
Sugar-free gum is most likely sweetened with aspartame; a chemical that is believed to be both a brain toxin and the cause of many other scary disorders, even cancers.
“Healthy” gum is sweetened with xylitol; an otherwise “healthy” naturally occurring ingredient found in berries, oats, beets, sugar cane, and birch.
However, the xylitol in chewing gum is not the same as the xylitol found in nature; which is used medicinally to prevent tooth decay and even ear infections.
Rather, thy xylitol made for, say, chewing gum, is often a byproduct of taking natural ‘xylan’ from something like corn and then adding chemicals to it.
That also makes Xylitol products particularly vulnerable to having nasty GMO’s!
Why Do We Chew Gum?
You may chew gum because it’s an alternative to another addiction; such as candies, smoking, or nail-biting.
But another reason we chew gum is because we become addicted to the sugary taste and the chemicals in most chewing gums.
Also, chewing gum helps us focus on a task for longer periods of time.
