The Key to Healthy Teeth: Eating Cheese?
A new study published in the most recent issue of General Dentistry suggests that eating cheese can decrease the odds of developing cavities. It's just one more good reason to keep eating lots and lots of cheese (as if we needed another).
Researchers believe that eating cheese stimulates saliva production, which is the body's way of keeping the mouth at a normal acidity level. The saliva acts as a flush to remove any residue in your mouth, and also provides a buffer against high levels of acidity.
