Other than the sugar in regular chewing gum, I can see no reason that gum would be harmful. The main ingredient of most chewing gums is chicle, which is vegan, fat free and should not be a problem. Some 'sugarless' gums contains xylitol (an alcohol sugar) which has been the subject of some negative research findings (but seems to be well tolerated by most people).

As in all things we consume, it's always best to read the label and find out what the ingredients are.
