Gum chewing may be a habit worth cultivating. According to two new studies (both funded by the Wrigley Science Institute but well designed), a little sugar-free chomping may bring:
- Better performance in school. Eighth graders who chewed gum during class, homework, and tests increased their math test scores by 3 percent and had better final math grades than nonchewing kids. Researchers from the Baylor College of Medicine say gum may help sustain attention by easing stress and anxiety.
- Less snacking. Volunteers who chewed gum for 15 minutes each hour between lunch and a snack consumed 60 fewer calories from sweets than when they went gum-free.
Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
