5 Toxic Ingredients in Chewing Gum

As you will see below, a commercial chewing gum can contain some of the most toxic substances that your body can be exposed to as well and can literally lead to some of the worst diseases.

Recently, about thirty women whose ages were mostly under forty, were asked if they carried chewing gum with them. Twenty-seven of the thirty were able to pull out a pack of gum, some even going so far as to say why they liked a certain brand/flavor of gum.

While this demographic is not representative of all women, 90% of them chewed gum daily, with some more consuming more than one stick per day. As with many things we expose our bodies to every day, let's take a moment to analyze the ingredients in chewing gum and ask some important questions regarding whether it contributes to good health.

How many of us have looked at the ingredients on a pack of gum?
If so, do you know what each of the substances is?
Is a stick of gum more of a "cancer stick" than a cigarette?

As you will see below, commercial chewing gum is some of the most toxic substances your body can be exposed to as well and can literally lead to some of the worst diseases on the planet.

Here is a list of the most common ingredients in the most popular gum products on the market:

Sorbitol, xylitol, maltitol, Mannitol,
rubber base
Glycerol
Natural and Artificial Flavors
Hydrogenated coconut oil and starch
Aspartame-acesulfame
Soy Lecithin
Colors (titanium oxide, blue 2 lake, red 40)
BHT
Malic acid, citric acid

Ingredient #1: gum base

Imagine if someone came up to you and said, "Hey, would you like to bite off some rubber from the tires and plastic?" You would probably politely decline and want to recommend that this person go to a doctor for a psychological evaluation. "Rubber base" is a mixture of elastomers, plasticizers, fillers, and resin. Some of the other ingredients that go into this mix are polyvinyl acetate, which is often referred to as "carpenter's glue" or "white glue."

Paraffin wax is another ingredient that is a byproduct of petroleum refining added to chewing gum. Is chewing plastic, oil and rubber safe? When you chew, these substances leach into your mouth and body. Yummy.

Ingredient #2: Aspartame.

The controversy surrounding this substance has spread. It is one of the most toxic substances that the body can consume. The political corruption and money trail behind this disease agent is a mile long. He Aspartame It has been linked to all major brain diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and ALS.

It is also considered a contributing factor in many other diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, asthma, obesity, and many others. It is in many diet products on the market today, but in the long term it actually contributes to obesity due to its extreme acidity. Aspartame is an excitotoxin, which overexcites neurons in the brain until they burn out and die. Dr. Russell Blaylock is the leading expert on Aspartame and other excitotoxins and I encourage you to watch the documentary "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World."

Ingredient #3: Hydrogenated coconut oil and starch.

Hydrogenation is the chemical process that adds hydrogen across a carbon double bond. This is done to increase the useful life of a product, converting the oil into a plastic of the same substance. This process also creates trans fats, which are now known to be very harmful to health.

Ingredient #4: Colors (titanium dioxide, lake blue 2, red 40).

Titanium dioxide, which many brands add to chewing gum, is a nanoparticle that is very common in sunscreen products and many others, including synthetic nutritional supplements. New evidence is leading in the direction that this substance is carcinogenic, leading to cancer. We as human beings are attracted to things that are colorful. Artificial food dyes, such as red 40, are made from petroleum and are dangerous to our health. Many people have extreme allergies to these substances and have been implicated in contributing to ADD and other disorders and diseases.

Ingredient #5: Sorbitol, Xylitol, Mannitol, Maltitol.

These sugar alcohols were originally made from sugar, but are altered so much that they are considered sugar-free. As a general rule, when nature is altered and changed to make a "better" product, more often than not, the result is something that is unhealthy. Some even go so far as to say that these products are much worse than sugar and can encourage weight gain. Other side effects may include abdominal pain and diarrhea. Is the sugar in alcohol better than sugar? Neither are good substances, so comparing the two is meaningless.

Chewing gum and digestion

Every time you chew gum, your brain is tricked into thinking you are eating food. Therefore, it sends signals to the stomach, pancreas and other organs involved in digestion to prepare for this "food." Your salivary glands and pancreas begin to emit enzymes, which are necessary to digest food and absorb nutrients from food. The constant release of enzymes over time causes enzyme depletion and over time this process can be delayed. If you do not break down and absorb food properly over time, illness will occur because the body needs nutrients to rebuild and thrive.

A great alternative for fresh breath

A great alternative to chewing gum is to carry a small bottle of food grade organic peppermint oil and when you want fresh breath, just put a drop in your mouth and you will have achieved the same effect. You can find many food grade oils that are wonderful for helping to have fresh breath.

Nothing in chewing gum is natural. It is chemical goop that does nothing for your health or is good for your teeth. Don't be fooled by fancy advertising. The five ingredients we have reviewed above, in one way or another, contribute to the poor health and illness of the poor. Is this really a risk you want to expose yourself to for the sake of fresh breath? In the future, perhaps we will see that chewing gum can be as much a contributor to disease as cigarettes.Ecoportal.net
