Have chewed gum forever.
Around a decade ago noticed at times I would get sharp cramps in my gut; mostly after eating a meal, I couldn't pinpoint a cause.
The only thing that was constant was the gum chewed post-meal.. when I read a thread on here about aspartame causing stomach cramps, (amongst of
course other symptoms of poisoning) I paid special attention to the gum. It was the cause.
Next time I went to the store, checked and ALL the gum they had contained aspartame - WT--
A few people I know have since said they stopped chewing gum altogether.
Now if I chew at all its just 1/4 of a piece of gum at a time - are you listening, gum companies?
I've read Thrills and Chiclets don't contain aspartame.
