Dear Chris Smith,

Here is my question to the naked scientists:

I wonder why it is that even if you have a fresh chewing gum and you do
heavy physical exercise or drink coffee that the texture of the material
changes. Are there enzymes digesting the material or is the pH changing
the material?

Best regards

We answered this question on the show...

We'll have the answer for you on the 23rd December Naked Scientists Show.  Until then, what do you think?
