cereal-free diet with vit D suppresses dental caries in children

By an order of magnitude, as shown in the following intervention study done on young children age 5-6 over 6 months:

BY MAY MELLANBY AND C. LEE PATTISON, The British Medical Journal, MARCH 19, 1932


1. A group of children averaging 5.1 years of age were given a cereal-free diet rich in vitamin D and calcium for a period of six months. The teeth of the children were defective in structure (hypoplastic), and much active dental caries was present at the beginning of the investigation.

2. Initiation and spread of caries were almost eliminated by these diets, and the results were better than those of the previous investigation in which-the vitamin D alone was increased in a diet containing bread and other cereals.


They indicate that a diet rich in vitamin D and calcium and devoid of cereals has greater inhibitory and curative effects on dental caries than any previously tested. Thus the new carious points observed to develop during the feeding period were only 0.05 per child as compared with the previous best result of 0.2 per child. The figure 0.05 is so small that it probably falls within the margin of error of this type of observation, and new caries may be considered, therefore, to have been suppressed.
The tests do not indicate that in order to prevent dental caries children must live on a cereal-free diet, but in association with the results of the other investigations on animals and children they do indicate that the amount of cereal eaten should be reduced, particularly during infancy and in the earlier years of life, and should be replaced by an increased consumption of milk, eggs, butter, potatoes, and other vegetables. They also indicate that-a sufficiency of vitamin D and calcium should be given from birth, and before birth, by supplying a suitable diet to the pregnant mother. The teeth of the children would be well formed and more resistant to dental caries instead of being hypoplastic and badly calcified, as were those in this investigation.


Want healthy teeth? Don't eat cereals, better yet eat high animal fat low carb diet with no wheat. I  haven't been to and had no need to use a dentist since 1998. I am 62.

"give us our daily bread" - on second thought - no thanks!

Fake science! It is said, according to Dr. Feynman to be based on assumption and extrapolated presumed diet not on direct data. Here are short comments containing critique of the study:

"better yet eat high animal fat low carb diet with no wheat."

But nothing wrong with adding quite a lot of potatoes to that and it cuts down the cost and environmental footprint a lot.

It cuts the cost indeed and is not as damaging to people as wheat but potatoes and rice are also high in carbs and people with metabolic disorder should watch that and be careful about eating too much. It spikes insulin, especially if consumed with fats. However, young and healthy - no harm as far as I know.
