OMG!! Chewing Gum is Made Of Rubber and Plastic ? | Shocking Bubble Gum Video

Recent Articles

A synthetic rubber (the gum base) is mixed with sugar and other flavors to make gum.  When you chew gum, the base releases the flavors.

This is really disturbing and gross. First of all, if you think gum won’t hurt your health since you are not eating it, you are mistaken. These dangerous ingredients get absorbed through your mouth straight into the bloodstream. Gum is so dangerous that some animals can die after swallowing it.

Gum Base is the main ingredient of chewing gum which comprises several synthetic ingredients such as  petroleum, lanolin, glycerin, polyethylene, polyvinyl acetate, petroleum wax, stearic acid, and latex. Though the precise composition of chewing gum is a company’s secret, these ingredients are used to provide elasticity and act as binders and softeners. As an example, Polyvinyl acetate is often used to make glues, coat paper or to give textiles a shine. So is chewing glue safe?

Even with several advantages of chewing gum, it also has some disadvantages. The following are some of these:

1. Excessive Gas. Even though chewing might be helpful for weight loss, it may also lead to stomach discomfort. According to studies, chewing gum may cause belching and gas, as within the chewing process, added air amount is being swallowed.

2. Dental Health. Chewing gum may also provide some effect on your dental health. Chewing gum with sugar content may harm your teeth, which causes cavities leading to tooth decay.

3. Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome. People suffering from temporomandibular syndrome must avoid chewing gum since the act of chewing may strain their jaw joints.
