I am realizing that this seems silly, buuuut…
We know that being on 100% soylent will likely not be good for the muscles in our mouths. I don’t want to chew gum all the time because I don’t want to put that much sugar in my mouth all the time. So I thought that I would just chew on a peice of leather daily to keep my muscles intact.
I snipped a piece off from a belt, and (surprise surprise) it comes with an unpleasant taste. The leather itself doesn’t taste bad, but I am worried about the chemicals used in coloring/tanning process.
I am assuming that the chemical taste will go away after awhile, but I am afraid of exposing myself to something dangerous. Does anyone know if it is okay to chew on a piece of leather?
