Best Answer

Personally, I have been told by at least two people that smoking mentholated cigarettes whilst chewing mint gum/candy causes cancer. There are two answers I can give you: firstly, most sugarless Chewing Gum contains phenylalanine (phenylketonurics). This chemical compound is found in Aspartame (i.e. Equal sweetening agent) and is thought to lead to cancer (unsubstantiated, citation needed). This, with the added cancer causing agents of tobacco smoke, can possibly lead to increased probability of mouth cancer. It is thought that the phenylalanine combined with carcinogens from cigarette smoke, can cause an increased risk of cancer. However, I believe that one cannot acquire cancer of the mouth from that alone. In my opinion, its no more harmful than chewing tobacco, dip, etc. One must keep in mind when ingesting chemical compounds, what exactly they are ingesting. If it seems bad for you, it probably is. I have been a smoker now for five years, and understand completely that I am slowly killing myself. But pleasure, and satisfaction come first in my book. Enjoy life, but be careful and knowledgeable

Your cat has a cut on it's mouth can an infection be passed to your dog?

The answer is, it depends upon what is causing the infection. An infected cut in the mouth is typically caused by secondary bacterial invasion of the cut, and some of these oral bacteria can jump from cats to dogs. However, it would require enough bacteria be transferred to the dog to both colonize and overwhelm the dog's immune system, so the practical risk is very low.
