Gum...

So I was a gum addict. I was chewing 2.5 - 3 packs per week...then, my mom sent me an e-mail about how sugar free gum contains aspertaime...a harmful chemical. So she stopped buying gum even with my protests... Before she stopped buying gum, I was getting really bad headaches, nausea, dizziness, and even toe-numbness daily.

Once I stopped chewing the gum, all of the weird things stopped happening. I no longer have such awful nausea and stuff.

I am very sensitive to alot of foods (lactose intolerant, too much beef makes me feel sick, etc) so I don't think this would happen to everyone, but I just wanted to bring it to everyone's attention. My gum habit was slowly poisoning me.

...I always had '5' gum...

Thanks for reading
