A study finds that people who chewed gum scored 40 per cent more in memory tests than those who didn’t.
Dr Andrew Scholey said
“We found a very clear pattern of improved memory when gum was chewed. We think it is the effect of chewing that causes this rather than anything in the gum itself. There are lots of ways to improve mental function. This may be one of a series of interventions that people may want to try.”
