Dangers of Chewing Gum
Many people think Djehuty is just being comical as usual when he says people who chew gum might as well chew rubber tires. But there is truth to this when you understand the fact that what both gum and automobile tires have in common is that they are both made from RUBBER!
If you're chewing gum today you are chewing rubber and plastic. That's right! The American people are so beat down that they are walking around chewing on rubber and plastic and think nothing about due to successful social conditioning and brainwashing.
Whereas chewing gum was originally made from tree sap (chicle from Mexican sapodilla trees), today's commercial gums don't have a trace of chicle in them.
Our modern day gums or chewing gums are made up of four major ingredients: Synthetic Rubber, Plastic, Sugar, and Coloring (dye). Modern day gums are produced from synthetic polymers, i.e. styrene-butadiene rubbers and polyvinyl acetate. The final product is composed of 60% sugar, 20% corn syrup, and only 20% actual gum material.
Did you know that nylon (as in nylon stockings) is a polymer? This should give you an idea of what you're putting into your mouth and chewing with gum.
Today's chewing gums and bubble gums are predominantly SUGAR by volume. Seventy to eighty percent of most gums on the market today are sheer vehicles for sugar, the number one drug on the planet. Just as cigarettes are a conveyor for the addictive drug 'nicotine,' so is gum for sugar.
Brief History of the Origin of Modern Gum
Modern commercial chewing gum originated in Bangor, Maine, in 1850.
In 1859, Thomas Adams of New York used "chicle," the dried latex material of the sapodilla tree of Central America to make chewing gum. Adams received a patent in 1871 for "chicle gum."
In 1885, William J. White of Cleveland, Ohio further refined and improved gum by adding corn syrup and flavoring the gum with peppermint, which was very successful.
In 1893, William Wrigley invented Juicy Fruit and Spearmint gums, greatly improving upon chewing gum.
In 1900, Frank Fleer of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania placed a hard shell on gum and called in Chiclets. In 1906 Fleer would also go on to invent Bubble Gum and an employee of the Frank H. Fleer Company, Walter Diemer, would go on to invent the pink colored Double Bubble, bubble gum.
The first recorded history of mixing a gum with sugar can be traced to the Arab sugar traders who mixed the sugar with acacia, known as "gum Arabic."
There is great danger in chewing gum due to numerous toxic and poisonous chemicals used as ingredients in gum. Following are a few of the common harmful ingredient substances used in gum that makes gum harmful to human health.
Aspartame, a known carcinogen and the #1 brain carcinogen ever discovered by science, is a neurotoxin due to conversion into formaldehyde that is produced when aspartame reaches degrees beyond 86 degrees. It is a given or automatic for aspartame to convert into formaldehyde (embalming fluid) when inside the human body due to the natural body temperature of the human body being 98.6 degrees, ten degrees hotter than the turning point whereby aspartame converts into a neurotoxin.
Aspartame in gum is absorbed by the buccal mucosa of the mouth, gums, and the tongue. According to research, because aspartame is absorbed this way, it makes aspartame a far worse poisoning than if given or injected intravenously. The aspartame goes directly into the brain by passing the spinal cord and the blood-brain barrier when it is absorbed in the mouth. The smallest amount of aspartame (like what is contained in a piece of gum) is very dangerous and damaging to the health of the body.
When aspartame is ingested into the digestive tract, it breaks down into numerous other poisons.
I constantly tell children that I suspect gum manufacturers use aspartame in gum as part of a nefarious plan to further dumb down American youth as well as adults. Americans, especially the youth, are chewing themselves into stupidity, dumbness, and oblivion. Through aspartame in candy, gum, and soft drinks and fluoride in the public school breakfast and lunch programs, American youth are being greatly lobotomized which prevents them from being able to critically think and to question or object to what the Rulers and social engineers are doing to people in this country, from violation of civil rights and liberties, encroachments and deprivations of constitutionally protected rights, and loss of human rights. The Orwellian society written about in the novel '1984' as well as the society Aldous Huxley wrote about in the novel 'Brave New World' is here.
WE ARE BEING DUMBED DOWN IN AMERICA ON PURPOSE! It is no accident that the average American reads, talk, and comprehends on a second grade elementary level.
Aspartame is a silent weapon and a brainwashing agent used on the masses of unconscious people in the United States as well as other countries. It should be avoided at all costs! This chemical causes a plethora of diseases and disorders:
"In 1991, I was diagnosed with an 'incurable' case of Grave's Disease, a fatal thyroid disorder, I never really had Grave's Disease but my doctors were convinced I did. I had aspartame poisoning with symptoms of 'textbook' Grave's Disease caused by aspartame saturating my foods." - Dr. Janet Starr Hull
Saccharin is another artificial non-nutritive sweetener and just like aspartame is a known carcinogen. But this doesn't stop it form being used as an ingredient in gum.
In 1997, the New York Times reported the following:
"WASHINGTON -- The artificial sweetener saccharin, which for 20 years has been dogged by suspicion that it causes cancer, was denied the scientific equivalent of parole Friday when a board of independent experts recommended that it remain on the government's list of suspected carcinogens." - Sheryl Gay Stolberg, Copyright 1997, The New York Times
Anything consumed that is a non-nutritive will eventually rob your body of nutrition. Like its cousin aspartame, saccharin is also a silent weapon and brainwashing agent. Saccharin should also be avoided at all costs.
High Fructose Corn Syrup
High fructose corn syrup has been implicated in our modern epidemic of obesity and diabetes. It is true that people under the age of 45 are "Children of the Corn." Like Stephen King's thriller (movie) by the same name, they are reaping the consequences and dietary karma of the commercial food industry's high fructose corn syrup.
This crap (HFCS) is damn near used in everything from soda pop, bread, candy, gum, commercial fruit juices, and even meat. This crap was introduced into the American food supply as a cheap alternative to sugar. Consider the following:
"It is getting difficult to find a food product at the grocery store or McDonalds that is not loaded with HFCS. One 20-ounce bottle of Coke, Pepsi, Mt Dew, Sprite or Dr. Pepper is the equivalent of pouring 17 teaspoons of sugar straight into your body. HFCS is the leading ingredient after carbonated water in these beverages. Women who drink at least one regular soda a day are 85 percent more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who drink less. It also leads to tooth decay."
"High Fructose Corn Syrup is found in fruit drinks like Capri Sun, Sunny Delight, Snapple, Hawaiian Punch, Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice and in most energy drinks. It is also found in chocolate drinks like Yoohoo, Arizona Tea, SoBe Beverages, cookies, ice cream, Campbell soup, Heinz Ketchup, Ragu, Aunt Jemima Syrup, Hershey's Syrup, Breyers Yogurt, Kraft Barbecue Sauce, Smucker's Preserves and some breakfast cereals.
High fructose corn syrup masquerades under the name of crystalline fructose in Glaceau Vitamin Water and some energy drinks. Naive teenagers guzzle this "poison" because they think it is good for them. Then they go on a diet and wonder why they are still gaining weight."
"Have you seen the new commercials on TV for Capri Sun? The ad suggests that Capri Sun is now healthy for you because they have added antioxidants. As long as they continue to sweeten Capri Sun with HFCS, they are lying to you. The body metabolizes high fructose corn syrup differently than sugar. It blunts the body's ability to recognize when it is full and increases a person's appetite. High Fructose Corn Syrup puts people at risk for metabolic syndrome. According to the Mayo Clinic, "Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Having just one of these conditions - increased blood pressure, elevated insulin levels, excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels - contributes to your risk of serious disease. In combination, your risk is even greater."
"There is a rise in uric acid in the bloodstream that occurs after fructose is consumed. The temporary spike of HFCS blocks the action of insulin, which typically regulates how body cells use and store sugar and other food nutrients for energy. If uric acid levels are frequently elevated, over time features of metabolic syndrome may develop, including high blood pressure, obesity and elevated blood cholesterol levels.
Research by the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reveals that high fructose diets shorten the life span of laboratory mice from the normal two years to a mere five weeks." Source: Know The Lies, "High Fructose Corn Syrup"
Color Lake Dyes
The various 'color lake' dyes, i.e. Blue Lake, Green Lake, Red Lake, and Yellow Lake are all derived petroleum and have also been classified as dangerous due to being carcinogenic (cancer causing).
Lake dyes are usually used for textile dying and are thus an industrial agent. So what is an industrial agent doing in gum that is chewed in the mouth?
I guess it really doesn't matter because Americans will consume anything.
Petroleum is derived from rocks (stones). Rocks are not food, right? Well, I guess if you use petroleum to make gum it's a food and especially if you ask the federal United States government (Congress). Believe it or not, but the federal government (Congress), U.S. citizens' collective master, actually defines chewing gum as food. Please reference the following:
(f) 1 The term "food" means (1) articles used for food or drink for man or other animals, (2) chewing gum, and (3) articles used for components of any such article. - 21 U.S.C. section 301
Now since when have the U.S. Congressional members become certified food specialists? We're in more bad shape than we think or know if we are allowing politicians to tell us what is food by defining what food is.
Gum is made from SYNTHETIC rubber and plastic and therefore cannot be assimilated by the human body nor does rubber or plastic provide essential nutrients and therefore cannot repair the body, promote growth of the body, nor maintain the human body. Therefore, gum cannot be food!
Also, the artificial sweeteners used in most commercial gums (which are 200-300times sweeter than regular sugar (sucrose)) are non-nutritive in nature, so they can't be considered food. The petroleum-based lake dyes are derived from rocks and thus also cannot be considered as food. Clearly, gum is not real food. Gum cannot be assimilated and digested by the body. It provides no essential nutrients. It does not repair the human body. It does not nourish the human body. And it does not sustain the human body. The crap is straight toxic!
BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene)
The chemical BHT is used in gums as a preservative. Remember, anything that has to be preserved is DEAD! But hey, what's the big deal, right? Aren't the majority of American citizens (U.S. subjects) the walking dead?
BHT is also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, JET FUEL, RUBBER, petroleum fluid, and EMBALMING FLUID. Now what does this tell you?
So in some cases we may have aspartame which converts into embalming fluid as a gum ingredient and also may have BHT which is used in embalming fluid as a gum ingredient in a particular gum brand. So Americans are being dummified and deadened at the same time. Good God almighty! As my late uncle Arthur Lee Cooper would say: Terrible, terrible situation! Or as my former business buddy Ahman Dolphin would say: That's horrible!
Gums will also contain other sugars denoted be the suffix "-ose" and/or "-ol", i.e. gluc(ose), sucr(ose), dextr(ose), and fruct(ose); or, mannit(ol), sorbit(ol), malit(ol), and xylit(ol). All of these sugars are suspect. Your '-ose' ending sugars are derived from fruits and your '-ol' ending sugars are derived from grains or even wood.
Xylitol would be the safest or least harmful to use unless you can find real fructose.
Gum and Digestion
Chewing gum destroys the teeth because of the constant chewing and grinding of the teeth to chew this crap. You cannot help the teeth with the chewing of gum, be it an unhealthy kind of gum, i.e., Wrigley's, Dentyne, Double Mint, etc., or a so-called healthy kind, i.e. Peelu.
Most Americans don't have a clue that they are habitually chewing gum due to tension. They have been trained that something must always go into the mouth, that they must always be chewing or chomping down on something. Many people have an oral fixation but are totally oblivious and unconscious of this fact.
Have you noticed that in most contact sports gum is chewed? I always saw this on the playground basketball court coming up in South Los Angeles.
Most contact sports create tension due to aggression and these feelings make you grind your teeth. Contact sports such as boxing, football, and basketball are nothing but continuations of the ancient Roman gladiator fights, now carried out in state-of-the art luxury stadiums and arenas across the United States. Caesar still got us in modern times, despite all those fancy college degrees, with BREAD and CIRCUS! We are refined and sophisticated savages today cheering for the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees, or Detroit Redwings.
Chewing gum helps with the desire of people to continuously eat. Gum is also insalubrious in that it causes your body to produce digestive juices (hydrochloric acid) in preparation of eating solid food, though you will not be eating any solid food despite the digestive juices produced due to chewing plastic called gum. Therefore, gum is a product that helps to fool your body, just like female birth control pills. But when your 6th Chakra (Third Eye) is closed it's easy to embrace lies, because the demon (negative quality) of this chakra is LIES.
Television greatly helps to shut the Third Eye because that's what it does: Tell LIES! It's the Tell-LIE-Vision! Its function is programming - programming the mind to be exact! That's why it's called television 'programming.' If the show you're watching is the 'program', then what is being 'programmed?' Can you say: MY MIND!
Folks, contrary to popular opinion, you cannot mask foul breath with gum. Chewing gum on top of foul breath is the equivalent of spraying perfume on manure. It defeats the purpose! Foul breath is the result of a toxic and polluted colon so gum can't possibly help. This is yet another American urban dietary legend.
Also, please know that you can't whiten teeth by chewing gum, so all those brands that purport to whiten teeth while chewing or due to chewing are simply exploiting people with stained teeth whose teeth most likely became stained from drinking soda pop, drinking coffee, and/or smoking symbolic white phalluses called 'cigarettes.'
Just look at what people are unconsciously putting into their mouths today: gum, cigarettes, alcohol, meat, pharmaceutical drugs, toothpaste, and mouthwash to name a few. And we might as well add toxic and polluted penises and vaginas to the equation because there's a lot of random and indiscriminate oral sex going on today. The problem is not with these sexual acts, but the sexual organs used in these acts. They are attached to toxic people and are thus toxic, but still end up in the mouth along with all of the other toxic substances and things named above.
In closing, I am doing my best in helping people, all people regardless of race, sex, creed, and nationality, to become conscious; however, in America, we are simply hit with a barrage of attacks with toxic weaponry and agents in almost every aspect of life here in the Matrix of the United States.
The Rulers have done a masterful job on us collectively and have succeeded thus far due to making what is toxic, harmful, dangerous, and fatal to us (perhaps in the long run), fair seeming and delectable to us, to our senses.
Our eyes and sense of sight have been corrupted with billboards, advertisements, television, and magazines.
Our nose and sense of smell have been corrupted with synthetic fragrances from the likes of perfume and cologne, air fresheners (home and car), artificially flavored foods and beverages, and household cleaning supplies.
Our mouth and sense of taste have been corrupted with faux foods and beverages, toothpaste and mouthwash, cigarettes and marijuana, and sugary candies.
Our ears and sense of hearing have been corrupted with degenerate and decrepit music from the likes of heavy metal, Black gangster rap music, television and radio commercials, telephones and cell-phones, blue tooth devices, electronic hearing devices, i-pods and mp3 players and the stereo walkman before these.
Our skin and sense of touch have been corrupted with harmful skin care and body care products, synthetic fragrance oils (i.e. Egyptian Musk), mineral oil and lanoline, silicon implants and Botox injections, and painkillers.
Our genitals have become corrupted with sexually transmitted diseases, use of male and female condoms, intra-uterine devices, synthetic chemical lubricants, tampons and pads, feminine deodorant sprays and talc's, douching, vaginal creams and jellies, constant sex with numerous partners in very short periods of time, and inundation and bombardment of toxic sperm and vaginal secretions.
Public Enemy said, 'Welcome to the Terror Dome!' I say, 'Welcome to the Toxic Terror Dome!"
Folks, we can live without gum and gum chewing. It is not necessary at all. Beware of all the gimmicks to get you to chew gum to lose weight (i.e. Hoodia gum which contains the powerful African herb 'Hoodia' which is an appetite suppressant), to brighten your teeth, to cut down on or to quit smoking (i.e. gums that contain nicotine), or to combat halitosis. You can find Hoodia herb available here at Dhealthstore.com.
And because I know it takes many people some time to make their transition to the healthy or health conscious side, if you must chew gum perhaps due to a gum or chewing addiction or fixation, purchase gum from a health food store with moderately safe ingredients, brands such as Peelu, Glee Gum, Spry, and Xylichew to name a few.
They taste pretty good and are made with far better and safer ingredients than your commercial brand gums such as Chiclets, Dentyne, Bubble Yum, Doublemint, Bubblicious, Spearmint, Juicy Fruit, Big Red, Bazooka, Big League Chew, Big Bol, Extra, Freedent, Orbit, Stride, Winterfresh, and Trident.
Commercial grade gums are nothing but conveyers for sugar and carcinogenic synthetic sweeteners.
We are chewing ourselves into abstract and astronomical stupidity and dumbness.
If you must chew gum, chew gums made with natural ingredients and safer forms of sugar, e.g. Glee Gum, Eco-Dent, and Peelu (available at Dhealthstore.com). I’m not telling anyone to not chew gum, but that if you are going to chew gum, chew gum that is not like the commercial gums, loaded with all kinds of insalubrious ingredients.
