How do I stop my 4-year-old son from chewing (on EVERYTHING!)?

So - this started late July - he chews on everything.
(As per my post in another thread - http://www.metafilter.com/66323/Priests-dont-have-Sht-on-China#1904273)
Primarily his shirts from the neck out (this is getting expensive) - but straws, lego, plastic toys are all fair game.
Is it stress? Anxiety? Basic oral fixation?
However - to be fair, I chew on pens, straws and pretty much anything plastic. Should I just give up and let our rodent genes win?
