The two take aways from this series that I have been trying for the last few months is no snacking and finish each meal with a raw carrot.
The experiment was done with a large family of eight. Half the people ate the usual three meals and then snacks at the usual snack times. And the other half of the family ate no snacks at snack time, they ate their snack with the meal and then finished that eating session with a raw carrot.
Every time you eat you are changing the ph and acidity of the mouth and leaving food remnants behind that bind to the tooth and sit in gum pockets that will support the creation of gum disease and cavities.
The mouths of the whole family were tested and found that the teeth of those that did not snack and ate the finishing carrot are healthier with less cavities.
I am truly liking this approach to mouth health. The carrot is massaging the gums and cleaning the teeth, probably better than the gum I use to chew after a meal.
To those that are interested in watching this entertaining series, sorry I lost the link. I will add a link here when I can find it again.
Be Healthy. Stay Healthy. Massage.
