Are You Sure You Want That In Your Mouth?
Gum is a healthy alternative to candy or other snacks, right?. Well, actually, maybe not.
Gum makes you:
- Eat LESS fruit
- Eat MORE junk food
- Increases the likelihood that you'll eat candy and chips
- You might get IBS
- Swallow a bunch of air so you end up with diarrhea, cramps, and bloating. (Yeah, that’s enjoyable.)
- Sugar causes tooth decay and your teeth will rot
- Artificially-sweetened gum acts as a LAXATIVE.
Oh, and gum is made from "sheep fat". It doesn't harm you. It's just a yellow, waxy substance. They call it "lanolin", and it keeps the gum soft. But it's made from the SECRETIONS from a sheep's glands.
In the words of Joe Walsh: “Got any gum?”
