Chewing sugar-free gum may cause damage to teeth
 Dentists who advise their patients after eating chewing sugar-free gum may have to revise its recommendations after scientists discovered that the habit use sugar-free gum actually destroys teeth.

Review of the new study was published in the edition of the British Dental Journal. Chewing sugar-free gum is not a healthy option for teeth, researchers say. Do products labeled "sugar-free" there are risks to our health.

Despite the fact that xylitol and sorbitol (sugar substitutes used in the gum) reduce the possibility of caries development, they are so-called "sour" seasonings. That is, those which increase the acidity, which in turn erodes tooth enamel. At acidity has other effects on the body, such as indigestion and diarrhea.

In addition, the results of this study again confirms the findings of other researchers and that sugar-free products do not reduce the weight and do not result in weight loss.
