Ralph Steinman was the researcher from Loma Linda University that discovered the fluid flow through the tooth that prevented/encouraged tooth decay depending upon which way it was going. Tooth decay is controlled by systemic conditions in the body, not foods eating holes in enamel. This information is held back from dental students today, for it shows that the tooth and body are connected in health/disease ways that go against traditional teaching practices. This booklet contains abstracts of over 60 publications detailing the endocrine functions that protect/prevent dental decay. Teeth are alive. Nutrients must be delivered, or death and enamel are subject to decay. Exciting news for those interested in “biological” aspects of the health of their teeth.
