Caring For Your Teeth - Do We Need Animal Products?
How healthy are teeth on a fruitarian diet?
According to Ramiel Nagel, author of "Cure tooth decay," one needs to consume daily raw butter raw milk cod liver oil bone broth etc.Andrew's Answer:
I don't eat an all-fruitarian diet, and don't recommend it. We need greens for minerals. Fruit, however, does bring in the majority of the calories on this diet.
That being said, my teeth are thriving on an all-raw vegan diet. Every time I go to get them cleaned my dental hygienist exclaims over how much better my teeth look since I've gone raw, and says she barely has to clean them at all.
Plenty of raw foodists have teeth problems, though, and for good reason. Dried fruit, nuts and seeds easily stick to your teeth, and most raw foodists eat far too many of these foods.
Once caked on, bacteria start to break the gummy bits down, but in doing so the bacteria eliminates an acid. Over time, the continuous acid onslaught brought on by regular consumption of these foods will destroy your teeth.
Also of concern is the consumption of raw juices and diets composed primarily of acid fruit.
It's clear, however, that the body does not need meat, dairy or eggs to maintain good teeth.
The best way to maintain your teeth is to take care of them. Flossing twice a day and brushing once or twice a day is critical. Letting food build up will cause decay of the teeth and ruin the gums.
