Chewing Gum May Make You Smarter

Chewing Gum May Make You Smarter
Wed Mar 13,11:13 AM ET

LONDON (Reuters) - The often-maligned act of chewing gum could in fact make us smarter, according to British research.


A joint study carried out by the University of Northumbria and the Cognitive Research Unit, Reading, has found that chewing gum has a positive effect on cognitive tasks such as thinking and memory.

"The results were extremely clear and specifically we found that chewing gum targeted memory," Andrew Scholey of the university's Human Cognitive Neuroscience Unit said. "People recalled more words and performed better in tests on working memory."

Peppermint gum, menthol or spearmint -- it makes no difference. The key is the repetitive chewing motion.

*chew chew*

Haven't you ever seen and wondered why people always chew gum during a test, or while they're playing chess?

Its true. I chew gum all day long

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Great, I eat about 2 packs a day!

I also read somewhere that the artificial sweeteners in gum are supposed to be connected to brain tumours, but lets not talk about that...
