Eating Sweets To Remove Harmful Bacteria!

Eating sweets could lower the levels of harmful bacteria in the mouth that can lead to tooth decay, says new research.

Bugs cause decay by sticking to the surface of our teeth, where they trigger erosion. Sweets help to stop this as the harmful bacteria are swallowed with salvia and are flushed out of the body, scientists found.

German firm Organobalance GMBH has developed “The boiled sweets” that could target the dental health of children to try to avoid the early onset of tooth decay.
