  Some 87 per cent of gum-chewing teenagers who suffer regular headaches can cure themselves by giving up chewing gum, new research suggests.

  最新研究表明,那些爱嚼口香糖又常容易头痛的青少年中,87%的人会在停止咀嚼口香糖后症状消失。

  Scientists at the Tel Aviv University-affiliated Meir Medical Centre, in Israel, found that most adolescents who give up the habit experience significant relief.

  以色列特拉维夫大学附属梅尔医学中心的科学家发现,绝大多数青少年在改掉咀嚼口香糖的习惯后头痛症状明显减轻。

  The scientists, led by Dr Nathan Watemberg, believe the finding could allow doctors to cure thousands of patients ofmigrainesand tension headaches without the need for additional tests or medication.

  由Nathan Watemberg医生领衔的研究组认为,该发现将使医生在不借助任何额外测试和药物治疗的前提下治愈数千患者的偏头痛和紧张性头痛。

  ‘Out of our 30 patients, 26 reported significant improvement and 19 had complete headache resolution,’ said Dr Watemberg.

  Watemberg医生表示,(在该方法的引导下)参与实验的30名患者中,26名的症状有显著改善,其中有19位患者头痛症状完全消失。

  ‘20 of the improved patients later agreed to go back to chewing gum, and all of them reported an immediaterelapseof symptoms.’

  “20名症状缓和的患者随后同意恢复咀嚼口香糖习惯,然后他们的头痛症状很快复发。”

  Headaches are common in childhood and become more common and frequent during adolescence, particularly among girls.

  头痛现象普遍存在于儿童时期,并且在青少年时期日益普遍和发作频繁,女生中这种现象尤为明显。

  Typicaltriggersare stress, tiredness, lack of sleep, heat, video games, noise, sunlight, smoking, missed meals, andmenstruation.

  常见的触发因素包括压力、疲劳、缺乏睡眠、发热、视频游戏、噪音、日光、吸烟、不吃饭和生理期。

  But until now there has been little medical research on the relationship between gum chewing and headaches.

  但直到现在,很少有关于嚼口香糖和头痛之间关系的医学研究。
