Chewing Gum Responsible for Migraines in Teens

Chewing Gum a Cause of Migraines in TeensA team of researchers recently identified gum-chewing as a cause of migraine and tension headaches in adolescents, according to a study published in Pediatric Neurology.

Thirty teenage patients were asked to simply stop chewing gum for a short period of time. Out of the 30 teenage migraine patients, 26 reported significant improvement and 19 had complete headache resolution. Twenty of the improved patients later agreed to go back to chewing gum, and all of them reported an immediate relapse of symptoms.
