An interesting overview of dental caries, titled "Epidemiology of Dental Disease" from the University of Illinois, explains how cavity rates have changed drastically over the years. This research is not entirely new as Dr. Weston Price discovered in the 1930’s that there are traditional populations who have lived free from cavities and tooth decay for generations. However, this University paper is another resource that highlights the role of diet and nutrition in dental health.
If you have perused this site or, even better, read Ramiel Nagel’s Cure Tooth Decay, you know that refined sugar is bad for your teeth not because it “sticks” to them as conventional dentistry would have you believe, but through changes in blood chemistry.
For decades we have been taught that sugar causes cavities by sticking to the teeth. I agree with what dentists say. That eating sugar frequently will lead to tooth decay. But it isn't because of the bacteria feeding off of the sugar. It is because of how processed sugar can cause and contribute to disease and imbalance in your body.
