Is Your Favorite Chewing Gum Causing Your Mystery Symptoms?
by Jaime A. Heidel
(The Best Years in Life) Millions of people live with chronic pain and autoimmune disease. Some have had the benefit of a diagnosis, while others are still dragging themselves from doctor to doctor trying to find answers. If you fall into the latter category, you’re not alone.
When you’re living with mystery symptoms, it’s a good idea to go on an elimination diet to see if food sensitivities are causing them.
It’s also very important to take a careful inventory of any cosmetics or household cleaning products that could be triggering an allergic or inflammatory response.
Wait. Did we miss anything? Oh, yes. Chewing gum.
It seems harmless enough. You may have a pack in your pocket or purse and reach for a stick after a garlicky lunch, a strong cup of coffee, or to stave off hunger pangs between meals.
What you may not know is that most commercial chewing gum is filled with toxic chemicals that may cause or worsen your mystery symptoms.
Here is a short list of synthetic chemicals in your favorite gum that could be making you sick:
According to research published by the FDA, this artificial sweetener has been linked to a list of chronic illnesses that may be caused and/or worsened by its long-term consumption.
This list includes, but is not limited to:
*Note: In the case of MS, aspartame toxicity mimics the illness or exacerbates the existing condition. However, it is not known to cause the disease itself.
Aspartame contains three neurotoxins believed to be the cause of some wide and varying symptoms.
BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene)
This synthetic chemical, designed to keep oils from becoming rancid, has been shown to increase hyperactivity in children. It has also been shown to cause dizziness, disorientation, and hives in some individuals.
This chemical, which is often used as a whitening agent in chewing gum, has been linked to asthma and Crohn’s disease. It is also a potential carcinogen.
This artificial sweetener contains a cancer-causing compound called methylene chloride. Research has shown that long-term exposure to this compound can cause headaches, depression, nausea, cognitive impairment, liver problems, kidney problems, and visual abnormalities.
Since the chemicals in gum can potentially cause a whole host of health problems and symptoms, it is best to cut it out of your diet completely for a month. Don’t change anything else, just avoid gum.
If your health improves, you’ll know it was likely something in the gum that triggered your symptoms.
Safer Brands of Gum to Chew
Good news! You can still get that satisfying chew without a side order of cancer.
Give them a try!
