Abstract ObjectivesStudies of hunter–gatherer oral pathology, particularly in Australia, often focus upon dental wear and caries or assume that historic studies of Aboriginal people reflect the precontact past. Consequently the range of population variation has been underestimated. In this paper dental pathology from human remains from Roonka are compared with a model of dental pathology derived from historic studies. The aim is to identify aspects of dental pathology indicative of regional or intra‚Äźpopulation diversity. MethodsAdult dentitions (n = 115) dating from the mid to late Holocene were recor...

The open access review paper I'll point out today is good overview of current thinking on the microbial contribution to Alzheimer's disease, with a particular focus on the microorganisms involved in gum disease, or periodontitis. The past century has seen huge strides in our control over the worst of the microbial life that caused so much suffering and death to our ancestors. Nowadays, of that worst, what is left uncontrolled are those microbes whose impact is more subtle and slow, or where it is inherently challenging to intervene. Tooth decay and gum disease remain widespread because these problems typically do not kill ...
