How Toxic Is the Chewing Gum You Chew?

How Toxic Is the Chewing Gum You Chew?

Here is a list of the 5 most dangerous ingredients found in commercial gum. Gum base, Aspartame, Sugar Alcohols, Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), and Acesulfame potassium. When a psychiatrist found that aspartic acid, a key ingredient in aspartame, created holes in the brains of mice, an investigation into Searleā€™s claims began. Animal studies done on acesulfame potassium have demonstrated a link to this substance and various tumors. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a preservative that has been linked to cancer. Sugar Alcohols can increase blood sugar just as much as sugar.
