or, like in the ads, is it massively beneficial?
Unless you're crossing a road and your foot gets stuck in a massive discarded wad of it and you get mown down by an HGV.
I imagine if you're chewing it up then stuffing it down your jap's eye, it's not going to do a whole lot of good.
Also has been shown to improve short term memory.
I went to a press launch recently and they demonstrated how much it can actually do, not only for your oral health but also your brain and mental wellbeing. It was ace. SUPERGUM.
Garrygum, which promotes mental agility?
I love you/Peter Serafinowicz.
with Dwayne Benzie?
^^^^^ please make up a joke for that sentence
Chewing gum litter contains a lot of bacteria; a single piece of gum can be discarded on the ground and while fresh will contain virus and over time continues to harvest bacteria. Not that I'm intimating that you'd eat pre-chewed gum...
to chew more of the stuff
I wonder if anyone's put a vid of that on youtube..
I'm asking on behalf of a friend (thewarn).
'Some orthodontists believe chewing gum can lead to problems with the temporomandibular joint, and recommend people not chew gum if they experience headaches, muscle fatigue, or pain in their jaw after doing so.'
any more diagnoses to carry out?
'An old wives' tale states that chewing gum, if swallowed, may take up to seven years to become fully digested, and that swallowing gum could also result in the substance becoming lodged in the esophagus. Chewing gum does resist complete digestion by the body; it is generally expelled like other foods in 95% of individuals, though relatively unchanged. In rare cases, some individuals who have been known to swallow chewing-gum regularly and who are predisposed can unfortunately aid the growth of bezoars within their stomachs or intestines'
I have it occasionally if I haven't been able to brush my teeth for some reason, but it's horrible. It makes my stomach go weird if I chew it for more than a couple of minutes, people chewing it look really unattractive, and it's a horrendous litter blight. Look at town centre pavements, they're carpeted with it!
'horrendous litter blight'. You are the youngest middle-class grandmother in Britain.
Chewing gum is GOOD FOR YOU.
I hate litter.
I'd be a good moany old lady.
cos I'm afraid I have poppy seeds stuck in my teeth from my sandwich at lunch.
squashed chewing gum on pavements. I have no recollection of where or when I found this out. maybe from Newsround.
Just painting over it to hide it, or incorporating it into some kind of art?
lots of different things. it was very cool. I may have made this up but I'm pretty sure it's true.
and I did learn this fun fact from Newsround.
it's Lizo all the way. what an absolute legend!
my sister hates Lizo, i've never worked out why.
He has been on newsround for ages actually, though he didn't have the aesthetic appeal of Ms Jago.
I wish I didn't know that about your sister.
to make your breath nicer/teeth feel more clean if you don't have access to a toothbrush.
I can't remember who told me this, but it works :)
when they cam into schools
we had to go en masse to the health centre for a little presentation.
Lazy fucking North Yorkshire dentists :(
..you dont eat much.
or if you swallow it
died from swallowing chewing gum. It was still stringy and wrapped itself around his heart, then tightened as it hardened meaning it couldn't pump blood around his body.
I hate it anyway !
Has chewed so much gum, his jaw muscles have developed to the level where he can bite through girders.
they extract the goodness from the girders and brew it to make Ien Bru.
