We often see people who have the habit of chewing gums. Some of them will say it's for exercise. While others say it's a habit and some will chew for fun. Studies have found that chewing gum while performing tasks can improve various aspects of brain function, including alertness, memory, understanding, and decision-making. While chewing gum has some potential benefits, chewing too much gum could cause some unwanted side effects.
Up to now, we generally believe that chewing gums are not so bad that they do not have serious consequences. But it is not true. The latest research conducted by scientists has revealed that chewing gum causes complications in the intestines.
Some scientists from the University of New York conducted research on the people who eat chewing gums often. Finally, the results were out. Chewing gums may interfere with the absorption of nutrients by intestines. Scientists have concluded that a chemical compound known as titanium dioxide in chewing gum can cause problems in the intestines. Due to some chemicals in the chewing gums, our intestines do not absorb the nutrients from our food.
Scientists say that there will be a deficiency in the nutrients, in the people who have the habit of chewing gums. Due to Titanium dioxide in the chewing gums, our intestines will not absorb iron, zinc, and fatty acids from our food. So, scientists suggest people stay away from the chewing gums. They create a great loss to the human body.
