“Chewing gum actually lowers your cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for stress. But chewing gum doesn’t just reduce stress, it also makes you more alert and improves your performance in memory-oriented tasks. It does so by increasing the blood flow to your brain and alerting your senses.” – Travis Bradberry
History of Bubble Gum Day
The Bubble Gum Day has been in celebration since the year 2006. Ruth Spiro, children’s book author is the founder of this celebration Day. The first Friday of every February ever since marks this celebration Day. The creator of this Day has come up with this idea as to generating the charitable contributions and allowing the kids to chew gum in the school. Those who donate 50 cents or more gets to chew gum and raise fund. It encourages children to know about the importance of humankind. Sooner, Day has become a successful celebration as charity is not limited under any circumstances.
The original bubble gum was created in 1928 by Walter Diemer. It was pink in colour, and the reason is it was the only dye that Diemer had most on hand at the time. The synthetic gum based materials are used in modern chewing gum, as the natural rubber chicle needs to pass several purity and cleanliness tests. Children prefer strawberry, and blue raspberry flavours as other complex flavours bring them the feel to swallow it. There are various health benefits associated with chewing gum. The bubble gum is found to be a great stress reliever and is also good for oral health.
