During the course of an "average" day in urbanized industrialized societies, people come into contact with thousands of synthetic compounds. Walking thru the supermarket, esp in the cleaning fluids aisles, you are breathing them in. Also when you put on perfume, you are breathing it in and subjecting other people to the same synthetic compounds that disrupt endocrine function.
These compounds are in fake smelling fruity chewing gum, hair gel, deoderant, dishwashing, laundry, and all the other kinds of cleaners.
Buy unscented or scented with essential oil products. If you want to chew gum, chew Xylitol come with natural flavoring, not some synthetic gum full of chemicals you can't pronounce.
