Is Gum the New ‘Cancer Stick?’

Leave a comment

Did you know chewing #gum is one of the most toxic parts of your diet, according to Your average, non-organic gum has been compared to cigarettes, and even linked to #cancer. Think about it; most of the ingredients on the package, you’ve never heard of. That’s a bad thing.

Some of the worst offenders, according to Dr. Scott Graves of, are 💊 #gumbase (which allegedly can include tire rubber and carpenter glue), 💀 #hydrogenatedoils, and #sweeteners (like #aspartame, #sorbitol and #xylitol) that are altered so much, that nature wouldn’t be able to identify the body. 

I opt for the lesser evil, a local brand called #sprygum, which still has gum base and xylitol but is labeled #nongmo. It’s pricey, so I buy in #bulk and place in a #reused tiny mint #container. 
🍬What’s your favorite better-for-you gum?🍬
