This study reports on the changes in oral ecology of healthy and diseased adults and the possible role in disease causation.Methods: The study comprised 150 participants divided into control (healthy), diabetic and cardiac groups. After dental examination for (Decayed Missing Filled Teeth (DMFT) and Oral Rating Index (ORI), stimulated saliva was sampled to determine flow rate and buffering capacity. Salivary microbial load of Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacilli were subsequently quantified.Results: DMFT, ORI, buffering capacity and flow rate were inferior for both diabetic and cardiac patients, who had higher bacterial counts (p

ABSTRACT The sugars added to foods have been featured in recent scientific research, including the publication of the World Health Organization recommendation to limit consumption of added sugars, based on studies on weight gain and dental caries. However, it is possible that there is evidence of an association between excessive consumption and other pathologies, but scientific studies have yet to investigate these associations. Moreover, there is no consensus on the descriptions and definitions of these sugars, with several terms and components used to designate them. In Brazil, there are few studies investigating added s...

ABSTRACT: The consumption of sugars, particularly sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs; beverages or drinks that contain added caloric sweeteners (ie, sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice concentrates), in European children and adolescents exceeds current recommendations. This is of concern because there is no nutritional requirement for free sugars, and infants have an innate preference for sweet taste, which may be modified and reinforced by pre- and postnatal exposures. Sugar-containing beverages/free sugars increase the risk for overweight/obesity and dental caries, can result in poor nutrient supply and reduced d...

Given the void in dietary wisdom due to the ineffectiveness and blunders of “official” dietary advice, there is no shortage of books or diet programs trying to fill that void, many wildly at odds with each other—paleo, Atkins, vegan, vegetarian, high-carb, low-carb, ketogenic, etc. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the USDA’s MyPlate and food pyramid, and organizations such as the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association, as well as many of the diet programs in the popular press, I believe, fail to acknowledge several fundamental principles that really need to be address...

BOSTON (CBS) –State lawmakers are considering a new tax on soda and other sugary drinks. The higher the sugar content, the more money you’ll pay. The bill’s sponsor said the tax could help promote healthy alternatives while the opposition says it will hurt the economy. A hearing at the State House on Tuesday brought out testimony on both sides. Julieta Lopez held up packets with the amount of sugar in a large soda. “This is how many packs of sugar are in that one bottle. This is ridiculous. Something needs to be done,” she told members of the Revenue Committee. The tax could add as much as 2-c...

Authors: Lifshitz F, Casavalle PL, Bordoni N, Rodriguez PN, Friedman SM Abstract Oral health status must be considered in the care of children with obesity (OB) and diabetes mellitus (DM). The health of these patients' mouths may have significant effects on their overall health and evolution of their disease. Here we address periodontal disease (PD) and dental caries (DC), since these are two of the most common chronic diseases affecting OB and DM patients. OB plays a plausible role in the development of PD. Both overall OB and central adiposity are associated with increased hazards of gingivitis and its progressio...

Abstract Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency is a global health issue that afflicts more than one billion children and adults worldwide. The consequences of vitamin D deficiency cannot be under estimated. There has been an association of vitamin D deficiency with a myriad of acute and chronic illnesses including preeclampsia, childhood dental caries, periodontitis, autoimmune disorders, infectious diseases, cardiovascular disease, deadly cancers, type 2 diabetes and neurological disorders. This review is to put into perspective the controversy surrounding the definition for vitamin D deficiency and insufficienc...
