Seaweed toothpaste stops tooth decay

(NaturalNews) Brushing and flossing doesn't always keep you out of the dentist's chair, a chair we all need to avoid. Amalgams inserted into cavities are loaded with toxic mercury that leaks into our bodies. Root canals have been discovered to be the root of some chronic illnesses. (Natural News, source below).

Of course, fluoride doesn't help prevent tooth decay. Instead, it contributes to bad physical and mental health and lowers I.Q. while diminishing will power. It's toxic and actually causes dental fluorosis, decaying tooth enamel that will put you back into that dental chair.

So what to do to avoid the barbarism of modern dentistry? It appears that sea life may come to the rescue. A group of UK scientists are experimenting with enzymes extracted from seaweed microbes that may be able to remove the microbes in dental plaque.

The Newcastle University research team had originally pursued this line of research into seaweed's Bacillus lichenifromis for the ship industry to see if these microbes would help clean ships' hulls without going into expensive dry dock maintenance that also takes a ship's time away from the sea.

Actually, it's not the microbes themselves that deliver the cleansing. It's the enzymes they produce. This type of enzyme has to come from raw seaweed. Heat destroys enzymes.

From seawater to ship hulls to dental plaque

Dr. Nick Jakubovics of the Newcastle University School of Dental Sciences discovered how these same enzymes produced by seaweed microbes could eliminate plaque on, between, and behind the teeth if utilized in an oral mouthwash or toothpaste.

Dr. Jakubovics explained: "Plaque on your teeth is made up of bacteria which join together to colonize an area ... scrubbing off the plaque containing bacteria is not always effective ... We found this enzyme can remove some of these undesirable bacteria from plaque."

Plaque is made up from lots of decaying bacteria. When those cells die, their DNA leaks out to form a biofilm that sticks to teeth. The dental research into seaweed enzyme producing microbes focuses on eliminating the need to eliminate plaque entirely.

Instead, the idea is to simply remove the bacteria like Streptococcus mutans that actually cause tooth decay. Dr. Jakubovics and his team intend to present their findings to the UK's Society of Applied Microbiology.

Dr. Jakubovics comes across in a radio interview as very conservative with how long it may take to go from research to market with his findings. Perhaps because he's familiar with the UK's process that rivals the USA's FDA hoops for approval. The short radio interview is available in the BBC Report below.

Some of those hoops could be provided by dental profession groups' desire to not reduce office visits that require laborious plaque removal work. Worse yet, actually reducing cavities would eliminate a lot of dental business.

In the UK's system of socialized medicine, that would logically reduce the national economic burden of health care. But logic isn't always worshiped by governments and egoistic medical groups, as evidenced by recent manic attempts to remove vastly less expensive homeopathy health care from England's medical system (http://www.naturalnews.co/034164_medical_monopoly_homeopathy.html).

Here in the USA, that could result in even more opposition from the American Dental Association (AMA) bureaucrats who control the dental trade union to keep dentists in business. Even as the AMA publicly supports water fluoridation from industrial waste fluorides to prevent tooth decay, there is no evidence of less tooth decay from toxic public water fluoridation.

Why should dentists even really want less tooth decay? How could they pay their staff, lease all that expensive dental apparatus, and buy more BMWs to park in their McMansions?
