Well, chewing gum does have its own set of bad effects -
1. Many of you might be chewing the gum to avoid junk foods. But, on the contrary it increases your junk food intake. By chewing the gum, your appetite is likely to die out.
2. It may induce jaw joint disorder. You tend to chew on one side of your jaw more which causes imbalance in your jaw muscles.
3. Since you swallow air while chewing, the excess air intake can result in gastric problems.
4. Tooth decay is one of the major issues with gum chewers. Your teeth and jaw are literally immersed in sugary syrup while chewing the gum.
Chewing gums will also cause headaches, toothaches or ear pains after prolonged use. It is also known to cause problems like diarrhoea.
