How to re-cycle a chewing gum story when grant application time comes around again.

ScienceDaily (Mar. 8, 2005) — Are you sick and tired of stepping in waste chewing gum? Have you ever noticed gum litter on pavements in the High Street? When is the last time your child came home with gum in their hair or on their clothes?

Now help is at hand. The University of Manchester is working with Green Biologics, an Oxford based biotechnology company, to develop a revolutionary biological treatment that is cost effective, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. ....this new treatment uses natural enzymes to break down the chemical structure of gum.

Scientists target £150m chewing gum menace with organic salt solution

Scientists have created a biological brew that could help Britain clean up a £150m-a-year environmental menace: discarded chewing gum.

The researchers, based in Manchester and Belfast, have developed a special solution of enzymes which can break up and dissolve blobs of gum hardened to our streets and pavements. At present, such lumps can be removed only by using cumbersome high pressure steam hoses, expensive and noisy freezing machines or corrosive chemicals that damage the environment.

Big tits if you chew gum

In a squalid justification of this saucy picture, Japanese confectionary company Good One Ltd. claims that their B2 UP when chewed three or four times a day, can increase breast size, improve circulation, reduce stress and fight aging. The powerful ingredient is the Pueraria mirifica root extract also known as Gwao Krua, and is indigenous to Thailand and Burma. The plant’s underground tubers contain a number of chemicals called Phytoestrogens, natural compounds which are said to mimic the effects of the female sex hormone, oestrogen.

The company said tests carried out by Thailand’s Chulalongkorn University found Pueraria mirifica therapy was able to enhance breast size up to 80%.... the report failed to say if this applied to both sexes.
