National Chewing Gum Day
Humans have used chewing gum for over 5,000 years. They may have chewed it for enjoyment, to stave off hunger, or to freshen their breath much like we do today. To celebrate the chewable globs that fulfill the human urge to gnaw, National Chewing Gum Day was created.
In observance of National Chewing Gum Day, RRHC gave away packs of sugar-free gum to patients to highlight the benefits of chewing gum. Happy chewing!
Facts About Chewing Gum:
1. Good for focus, memory, and stress relief
Studies prove that chewing gum helps to reduce stress, increase alertness, and improve memory.
2. Improves oral health
If sugar-free gum is chewed after a meal, the increased flow of saliva may help wash away acids produced by bacteria while breaking down food. This reduces plaque build-up.
3. It keeps you from crying
Chewing gum while cutting onions can prevent your eyes from watering.
4. Gum in hair
If you ever get gum stuck in your hair, try using peanut butter to get it out.
5. Pink bubble gum
Originally, the only available color for chewing gum was pink!
6. Helps with nausea
Some flavors of sugar-free gum may reduce nausea. Gums with ginger or mint flavors are more likely to soothe an upset stomach.
