Love Chewing Gum? 7 Reasons Why You Must Not!

Love Chewing Gum? 7 Reasons Why You Must Not!

Do you love chewing gum? You love popping it and get a kick when chewing gum with friends. You think it’s a style statement and a cool thing to do. Above all, you think it’s only for fun and is harmless! Well, this article may be an eye opener for you. Here are some facts about chewing gum that can change your thinking.

  1. Chewing gum has been a favourite snack for millions of people, especially children and adolescents. Besides the sweetness, people like it for its flavour. Many people also use it as a replacement for a food craving. One fact that refrained many from consuming chewing gums was that it was loaded with sugar. However, with ever-growing awareness about consumption of sweetened products, the companies have now started offering sugar-free gum to health-conscious people which are made using artificial sweeteners.
  2. The artificial sweetener most commonly used in chewing gums is aspartame whose components metabolizes into wood alcohol and formaldehyde in the body. Both have carcinogenic properties and the body is unable to eliminate them through normal waste. These have been linked to cancers, birth defects and weight gain.
  3. Some tooth whitening gums contain an ingredient called Titanium Dioxide. This gives the chewing gum its glossy white color. It is a dangerous compound linked to many disorders including auto immune disorders, crohn’s disease, asthma and cancer.
  4. Gastrointestinal problems are quite common among chewing gum consumers. The symptoms include pain and cramps in abdomen, indigestion and diarrhea. Irritable bowel syndrome has been found to be associated with chewing gum eaters as chewing gum can lead to swallowing of excess air and changing of bowel habits.
  5. Dentists strongly recommend staying away from chewing gum habit, as it can be a cause of tooth decay. Chewing gum may also release mercury from Dental fillings into the system causing host of problems.
  6. Recent research has established a link between eating chewing gum and headache and migraines. It is believed that chewing gum puts an undue pressure on temporomandibular joint causing headaches. It can also lead to pain and lack of mobility in the jaw, causing an inability to chew meals. This is called temporomandibular joint disorder and is commonly found among chewing gum lovers.
  7. A chewing gum base is made from a combination of chemicals and non-edible substances. We generally chew it for flavour and throw the rest. However, the compounds do get stuck to the linings of the mouth and enter our system. A chewing gum adds no nutritive value and diminishes a person’s ability to chew and eat normally. For its far-reaching side effects, this habit is a big no to keep. Stay safe! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Sir when we do sex between the menstrual period there is a chance of pregnancy in that case? Should do in that period?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Menstrual cycle begins on the first day of your period and continues up to the first day of your next period. Most fertile period is at the time of ovulation, (when an egg is released from your ovaries) which usually occurs 12-14 days before next period starts. So it is impossible to get pregnant when you have sex during menses.

Ho. You definitely have a hormonal disturbance most likely pcod. But you need to confirm and start medication for 9 months to one year. You must go for an ultrasound pelvis. You have blood tests on 2 nd day of your periods fsh, lh, prolactin. You must exercise and try to loose weight. Avoid all fatty and maida based items. Pcod is a condition characterised by periods irregularity, mood fluctuations, weight gain, acne, hair growth on face etc.

My wife is unable to conceive. Her period delayed every time. Every time her period comes in 2-3 months, and comes with the help of pills (regestrone). But this time we had decided not to take pills. So, her last period date was 23rd september 2016. After that period never happens. Now it has been five months. We have checked for pregnancy as well but result is negative. Our marriage completes one year and two months and we want a baby. But due to bad period cycles we are failed every time. We had consult with doctors as well. And gone through several tests like hsg, tsh, prolactin etc. Please suggest.

Looks like she has some hormonal problem due to which she is Not able to produce hormones enough to make the lining of the uteurs. This means she is also not producing an egg (ovum) thats necessary for pregnancy. She needs expert infertility evaluation and you must upload her hormone tests to show the levels. Mostly she will be having PCOD, and may require fertility enhancing medicines to cause ovulation. Do NOT shirk away from medicines. Just making periods by taking a tablet is not good. The treatment must be aimed at making her have ovulation, which will automatically bring her either a period or make her pregnant. DO not do doctor shopping and visit numerous doctors. Find one good one and follow up with that gynecologist for a good 6 months while tests and other treatments are offered to her. If she is overweight, that could be a reason too which may hamper her ovulation and periods. If overweight losing weight is the simplest thing one can do to help oneself.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
If you insert any liquid on the vagina it increases the chance of infection inside the vagina and ultimately you r at risk of getting infected. So refrain from any such activities. Of course you can kiss on the vagina but please do not apply anything there.

It's not natural because nature has made sex for regeneration and life multiplication. Besides painful it has more chances to cause AIDS. To eliminate pain, simply apply desensitising gel.

Hi i am 27 year old, I have married 3 yrs back after 6 months of marriage i am getting heavy periods, and have lots of pimples on face, suggest me solution please.

Being overweight, using certain medications such as blood thinners and having a hereditary bleeding disorder also put you at a higher risk. There are many possible causes of heavy menstrual bleeding, including hormonal imbalance in the body, fibroids or noncancerous tumors of the uterus, uterine polyps, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, use of blood thinners and a side effect of using an intrauterine device (iud) for birth control. Blackstrap molasses is another effective remedy to control heavy bleeding. Being rich in iron, it aids in the production of red blood cells and may help regulate the amount of blood lost during menstruation. In addition, it helps reduce blood clots and soothe the muscles of the uterine walls to reduce pain? add 1 to 2 teaspoons of blackstrap molasses to a cup of warm water or milk. Drink it once daily? another option is to add tablespoon of blackstrap molasses to a glass of lemongrass tea. Drink it once in the morning and once at night before going to bed. Follow either of these remedies for a few months to notice improvement in your condition. 3. Apple cider vinegar you can also try apple cider vinegar to overcome the problem of heavy menstrual flow. It works as a tonic to flush toxins out of your body and maintain hormonal balance. It can even be helpful in treating symptoms like cramping, headaches, irritability and fatigue. 1. Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. 2. Drink this solution 3 times a day during the menstrual cycle for best results for medicines consult privately.

Hypothyroidism is a condition which can only be treated by taking tab thyroxine (thyronorm), to begin with start on 50 mcg daily, to be taken early morning on empty stomach and after that for 2 h nothing to be taken. Since you are pregnant medication has to be started right away and to be continued with out break. After 3 - 4 weeks check tsh, t3 & t4 levels.

Depends whether your baby is in which position at the time of delivery, and whether or not foetus goes in distress, if not ,then just by a plate in leg ,it will not be a elective caesarian. Unless your other vital parameters like BP, sugar etc are not normal. Sometimes bcz of inability to push during normal child birth, if the plate in leg causes discomfort, your Gynaecologist might choose to go for a Caesarian to avoid stress to you or your baby.

Some women do experience breast pain or stomach pain immediately after ovulation. This really does not impact the possibility of pregnancy. You can very well get pregnant even if you experience pain after ovulation.

Only one loop of cord around neck is not an indication for caesarean and normal delivery may be tried. But if there r other problems. Then you have to go for caesarean. Caesarean also has risks for baby and mother. When in doubt second opinion maybe taken from another gynaecologist.
