I have a friend who is always chewing gum - every time I see her she has always got chewing gum. I really understand that she needs it, after she gave up smoking, but sometimes I wonder if there are any health risks from chewing gum all the time? Do you know? Does gum chewing have any side effects?

If the gum your friend is chewing is sugar based, I think there are dental risks involved. Unlike other sugars, gum is something that stays in the mouth for a large part of the day, thereby attacking the teeth over and over again, like a standing army. Sugar replacers are not always easy on the teeth either. Has your friend been to the dentist to check for cavities lately?
