The Dangers Of Chewing Gum

chewing-gum3972Gum is typically the most toxic product in supermarkets that is intended for consumption, and it is likely to kill any pet that eats it.

Originally, chewing gum was made from tree sap but today’s commercial brands are loaded with harmful ingredients and chemicals.

The modern day chewing gums are made of four major ingredients including synthetic rubber, plastic, sugar, and coloring (dye).

The final product is composed of 60% sugar, 20% corn syrup, and only 20% actual gum material.

People do not typically swallow gum, so they pay very little attention to the ingredients. However, the ingredients in gum travel into the bloodstream faster and in higher concentrations than food ingredients, because they absorb straight through the walls of the mouth, and they do not undergo the normal filtration process of digestion.

Commercial gum products contain roughly the same list of toxic ingredients, with differing labeling, which is virtually always designed to be deceptive.

Common Ingredients of Gum
After looking at several different brands of chewing gum, we found that these were the most common ingredients:

[starlist]

  • Sorbitol
  • Gum Base
  • Maltitol
  • Mannitol
  • Xylitol
  • Artificial and ‘Natural’ Flavoring
  • Acacia
  • Acesulfame Potassium
  • Aspartame
  • BHT
  • Calcium Casein Peptone-calcium ­Phosphate
  • Candelilla Wax
  • Sodium Stearate
  • Titanium Dioxide (so cancerous that external skin contact is enough)
  • Color Lake Dyes

All of these ingredients absorb directly into the bloodstream through the walls of the mouth.

Gum Base

Instead of telling customers what they are really eating, ‘gum base’ is used to generalize a list of ingredients that is never published.  We have tried exhaustively to find exactly what ‘gum base’ is made from.

  1. Elastomers, act as the key ingredient and provide elasticy
  2. Resins act as binders and softeners
  3. Plasticizers render the elastomer soft to ensure thorough blending of the gum base
  4. Fillers contribute to the overall texture
  5. Antioxidants prevent oxidation of the gum base and flavors during shelf life”
Aspartame

Most chewing gum is sweetened with aspartame. Long term use of aspartame has been linked with cancer, diabetes, neurological disorders, and birth defects.

The controversy surrounding this substance is widespread. It is one of the most body toxic substances we can consume. The political corruption and money trail behind this agent of disease is a mile long. Aspartame has been linked to all of the major brain diseases including Alzheimer’s and ALS. It is also considered a prime contributor to 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 run actually contributes to obesity due to his extreme acidity. Aspartame is an excitotoxin, which over excites neurons in the brain until they burn out and die. Dr. Russell Blaylock is the leading expert on Aspartame and other excitotoxins and I would highly encourage you to see the documentary entitled “Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World”.

Colors Lake Dyes

The various ‘color lake’ dyes such as blue lake, green lake, red lake, and yellow lake are all derived from petroleum and are known to be dangerous due to its carcinogenic properties. Normally used for textile dying, lake dyes are industrial agents.

Petroleum is derived from rocks or stones. Even though rocks are not typically considered a food product, they become one when you use petroleum to make gum. Believe it or not, the federal government actually defines chewing gum as food.

Gum is made from synthetic rubber and plastic and therefore cannot be assimilated by the human body nor do they provide essential nutrients. Therefore this food product cannot repair the body, promote growth of the body, or maintain the human body. Therefore, gum should not be considered a food product.

open-uri20121230-10071-hjhgatAlso, the artificial sweeteners used in most commercial gums are 200-300 times sweeter than regular sugar. The petroleum-based lake dyes are derived from rocks and should not be considered food. The body cannot digest gum and even if it could, gum does not provide any essential nutrients that the body can benefit from. It does not repair, nourish, or sustain the human body.

Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol

Sorbitol, Maltitol, and Mannitol are sugar alcohols.  These are usually made from sugar, and they frequently increase the blood sugar just as much as eating sugar.  However, manufacturers make deceptive “sugar-free” claims about sugar alcohols, since these ingredients are not pure sugar anymore. While such sugar derivatives are technically “sugar free” when the manipulative word games are employed, they nonetheless remain dangerous for diabetics, who are the very audience that these gums are marketed to.  Let’s not forget that the sugar alcohol containing gums are also marketed to improve our dental health, either; since they are so “sugar free”, after all.  The sugar alcohols are even more chemically bastardized than “white” sugar is (and thus more toxic), so we have reason to believe that these forms of sugar will stimulate even more weight gain and inflammation than regular sugar.  All of the evidence points in that direction.  Furthermore, these chemically bastardized sugar alcohols are documented to cause abdominal pains and diarrhea, whilst aggravating various health conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome; so the immune system takes a huge hit from them.  This immune suppression will in turn cause greater yeast development in the body, which may actually lead to cavities.

BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene)

The chemical BHT is used as a preservative in gum. It is also found in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, rubber, petroleum fluid, jet fuel, and embalming fluid. In some cases, gum will contain two embalming fluids, aspartame and BHT.

Calcium Casein Peptone-Calcium Phosphate

While we would love to be able to provide lots of information on this ingredient, we can’t.  We simply don’t know.  It’s only appearance is in Trident gum (the worst brand), and thus we were unable to find studies or any other information about it.  It could be a whitening agent.  It’s important to note that casein is a milk-extractive that was linked with the Chinese baby formula poisonings.  Trust this ingredient at your own risk, but we would never encourage something when its research is hidden from the public.

In essence, Chewing gum is regarded as a harmless cultural tradition but chewing gum itself contains many ingredients that may be hazardous to our health.

[box type=”shadow” ]Natural gum is available, which is made from chicle, a tree that is native to central America. There was a time when all chewing gum was made in this manner, but it is more expensive, and thus less popular among large companies. Natural gum can be purchased online or from health food stores.[/box]
