A 35-year-old female asked:

Can 4 years of eating candy made of real peppermint oil everyday all the time cause stomach issues or any type of issues with the body?

Does the peppermint: candy contain sugar or sugar substitutes? That's more the issue. Sugar increases health risks and sugar substitutes are typically toxic to the brain. You are better off snacking on nuts, pumpkin seeds, etc. Peace and good health.
