For Your Sweet Tooth
It’s embedded in our brains that SUGAR CAUSES TOOTH DECAY. Sugar industry companies, as well as government officials, understand this; however, the 1960 attempt to reduce tooth decay did not include eliminating sugar from consumers’ diets. Instead, attempts at reducing decay came from ways to break up plaque on our teeth with vaccines. Why take the easy way out, when you can promote the use of fluoride and sealants for dental hygiene? No one wants to stop eating sweets- and the government and sugar industry companies encouraged that no one stop binging out on candy or soda. It seemed like the sugar industry was calling all the shots, not the government. But how much influence does the sugar industry have on the government now?
