The most interesting thing about history is that it can still be felt all around us. You can see castles that are hundreds of years old or read books written by people from a completely different era. Another bit of history involves your own body. Homo sapiens, or the human species, first appeared around 200,000 years ago.

When they stopped chewing gum, 19 reported that their headaches went away completely. Seven others said their head pain was less frequent or less intense. Once they returned to chewing, the same 26 children said their headaches returned!
