I am a chronic migraine sufferer, over 40, who has all health problems pretty much under control after treating candida, and lately following the bowel, liver and kidney protocols. The other day, the subject came up, that when I was about 5 years old, I used to chew tar with my neighbor friend. We chewed lots of tar! Does anybody know if this tar chewing could have any long term effects on my health. I appreciate any information as well as possible remedies if known. The tar itself was a huge cylindrical mound, that we would chip the tar off of, and chew it like gum. Is that coal tar pitch?
