Why you need to stop taking chewing-Gums



5 Dangerous additives in Chewing Gums.





    I noticed that everything we eat have advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages might be excess in take of the commodity. Remember, whatever goes in determines what comes out. Please stay tune and let discuss 5 dangerous addictive  in chewing gum


• Sheep Byproducts- Chewing gum often contains lanolin, a waxy substance that's derived from sheep wool, to help it stay soft. Hush... I cannot eat sheep ... As far you are eating chewing gum you've eaten sheep. However, the biggest danger of lanolin is that sheep are sprayed directly with pesticides to treat mites and pests. Haaa!!!!!... This is serious, spray! Am dead. Though the skins are been treated but... This is not even one out of Five and you've started shivering.



•Aspartame

If your gum is sugar-free, there's a good chance it contains the artificial sweetener aspartame. Aspartame is metabolized inside your body into both wood alcohol (a poison) and formaldehyde (which is a carcinogen used as embalming fluid and is not eliminated from your body through the normal waste filtering done by your liver and kidneys). It's been linked to birth defects, cancers, brain tumors and weight gain. Hmmm... Did I just see cancers? Yes.... 



•BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene) 

BHT is so toxic it's already been banned in many other countries. In the US, it's often used as a preservative in chewing gum and other processed foods. BHT has been linked to organ system toxicity, including kidney and liver damage, hyperactivity in children and carcinogenic. 

Please stop panicking.



•Calcium Casein Peptone (Calcium Phosphate)

Found primarily in Trident gum, This ingredient is occasionally used as a whitening agent or texturizer. As a highly processed milk derivative, little is known about its long-term ingestion, although casein was previously linked to baby formula poisonings in China.


•Gum BaseIt 

Its quite a mystery what "gum base" is actually made out of, but investigations found it to be a blend of elastomers, resins, plasticizers and fillers. Most manufacturers do not reveal more than this. After all, why would they want you to know that you're potentially chewing on petroleum-derived paraffin wax, polyvinyl acetate (carpenter's glue) and talc, which is linked to cancer. Carpenter's glue? yes.... Petroleum again.... You better start drinking palm- oil.


I know how hard it is but you need to stop chewing gums
