Tooth decay could be a precursor to obesity. Don't believe it? Ask your dentist. Milan Somborac, DDS, sees the same patients again and again, suffering from plaque, cavities, and infection. He provides expensive treatments for preventable conditions, and he blames it all on refined carbohydrates. The human genome represents the entirety of our hereditary information, and it is not aligned with the nutritional qualities of our food or our modern activity levels. Because of this, our overall health is in decline, and tooth decay acts as an early warning for the onset of diseases later in life. In Your Mouth, Your Health Somborac makes the connection between overall health and dental health. He tells us how to prevent decline, through easy to apply examples that will save your teeth and your life. For example, instead of telling us to avoid hot dogs, he tells us how to make them healthy. Instead of removing potatoes, he compares their nutritional value to apples. This guide does not tell you what you can't do; instead, it tells you how to do things better. There are serious benefits to eating from Mother Nature's pantry, and you can do it in your neighborhood grocery store. By following the guidelines of Your Mouth, Your Health, you will maximize your genetic potential and live a long, healthy life.
