A study analyzed a total of 2,248 gum chewers and non-chewers and measured a variety of indicators related to chewing gum, stress and health. Results showed that chewers were significantly more likely than non-chewers to report less extreme stress at both work and in life, and lower levels of feeling depressed. Other research showed that the more gum the students chewed, the lower the levels of stress they reported.
