Most kids chew gum. A piece or two each day. They often share it with their friends. That used to be the same story for me. Until the story started to change for me. I wasn't chewing 1-2 pecked a day I was chewing 15 or less a day. I kept buying pack after pack and chewing piece after piece and it wouldn't end until the day was over. Then it would restart. It took me a long time to realize how much gum I was actually consuming. When I finally came to my senses I started to wonder. Why was I waiting so much gum? Is it bad for me? Can I develop health risk? Can I even possible die? I didn't know much about gum. It's not really something I honestly cared about. All I knew is that some gum claims to clean and protect your teeth from cavities. I also see commercials that say 4 out of 5 dentist recommend this certain brand of gum I never thought that gum could pose as a threat, but my research proved me wrong. The research process was actually very hard. Most websites provided the same info but worded it differently. I was wondering how I could …show more content…
Gum is the leading cause of cavities. I wondered if this is why I had 13 cavities. I learned that the bacteria sitting on your mouth breaks down the sugar in the gum and causes acid, once the acid has been sitting on your teeth for a while it creates a cavity in your tooth. I learned that gum also has a very negative effect on teeth. If gum does cause cavities continuing to chew gum is even worse because most cavities today are filled with mercury and frequent chewing may cause dislodging and releasing of dangerous materials in your metabolism. I have 13 calories and was wondering if a lot of this materials was in my body. gum also has a big effect on the jaw, because chewing gum puts stress on the cartilage in jaw joints and can lead to a lifelong time of pain and discomfort.

A few of the people around that knew me said yes, and when I offered them my chewed gum they just laughed and commented on how gross it was. The rest of the people I asked just turned down the gum. I think the responses are similar to what I expected. The one thing that surprised me was the number of people I didn’t know who were still willing to take gum from a stranger, because growing up I had always been taught to never take food from a stranger. In our campus study, most of the individuals said they didn’t want gum, didn’t like gum, or just plain ignored us.
Have you ever had gum and tried to hide it by sticking it under a desk. Or maybe even choked on it when trying to hide it from a teacher or fellow classmate who might snitch. Many people will disagree with the fact that gum might help students learn. They are caught up on the negative reasons and downsides to having gum in a classroom or even on school grounds.

Should Students be Allowed to Chew Gum in Schools? Have you ever felt that you are chewing your gum in front of people? In my opinion, I think chewing gum should not be allowed in schools. One reason, I think chewing gum should not be allowed in schools is that in their experiment, gum chewers in the eighth grade had a 3 percent increase in their standardized math scores. First evidence about chewing gum should not be allowed in schools is that chewing gum, of course sugarless, for at least thirty minutes can do the trick and could offer relief for as long as three hours.
The aim of the experiment was to test different types of soft drink on calcium carbonate marble chips, which were used in place of human teeth, and record what percentage of the marble chips dissolved when it was left in the soft drink overnight. These results will show which of the five soft drinks tested was the most harmful, and the ingredients will be examined to explain why the particular soft drink was the most detrimental to human teeth. Human teeth are covered in a hard substance called tooth enamel, which is made of hydroxyapatite. Enamel is the hardest tissue in the body and is vital in protecting teeth from decay (Callison, 2018). Enamel erosion occurs when acids wear away at the teeth and can result in painful temperature sensitivity, discolouration, cracks and chips, and indentations appearing on the teeth, and will result in cavities (Smith, 2013).

Chewing gum helps people think rather that talk because their mouths are occupied. Chewing gum gets people to perform better and to really think and listen to what they’re learning.

Have you ever talked to someone and you just can't pay attention to what they're saying because of their bad breath?

Students ADHD or any student has shown in studies that a simple chewing motion can help students focus. We must have boundaries for chewing gum in school. Students might feel rebellious when they're chewing gum and when they're done with it they will stick the gum under the desk. This is not only gross but disrespectful to other students and most importantly to teachers. Therefore there must be a boundary for students who are chewing gum.
