SPECIALS FRL & SAT, JAN. 14-
One dental scien^st, deploring
America's gigantic sweet tooth, I
said we are each eating about 100
pounds of sugar a year—nearly)
three times as much as we need ‘
for good nutrition.
Throughout the world, the re-1
lation between sugar consump-
tion and tooth decay can easily
“It is well known that the1
amount of caries (tooth decay) >
any population experiences it
roughly porportional to its sugar ‘
says the dental
A/2C JAMES CREWS has
been assigned to duty at Don-
aldson Air Force Base, Green-
ville, S. C. Airman Crews left
Jan. 4 for the South Carolina
base after a 17-day holiday
leave with his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. C. E Crews of Route 1.
He entered the service Feb. 8,
1954, and recently completed a
course of studies at Shepperd
Air Force Base, Wichita Falls.*
As one example, a study of Es-
kimos shows that before contact
with our civilization, their teeth
were practically free from dental,
decay. When they began to eat'
spgar and other carbohydrates—J
foods that had been strangers to |
them—tooth decay for the first
time became a real problem.
Because dental decay is chief-
ly a disease of childhood and the
teens, the problem of too much
sweets becomes particularly im-
portant for our children.
Dentists agree that it is the
between-meal snack that is the i
worst offender. A child who nib-
bles on candy, cookies or other
sweets several times a day in-
vites dental decay because each
snack generates the production -
of new enamel-destroying acid. |
Foods commonly eaten by
youngsters between meals often
contain large amounts of sugar.1
It has been estimated, for ex-
ample, that there are seven tea-
spoons of sugar in a nickel can-
dy bar; four to five teaspoonfuls
in a bottle of sugar-sweetened
soft drinks; 14 teaspoonfuls in a J
piece of cherry pie.
Parents are urged to substitute
such other between-meal stacks
as nuts, popcorn, potato chips,
cheese or fresh fruits because
they appease the appetite with-
out leading to the harmful decay-
Both the dental and medical
professions have strongly recom-
mended that school premises not
be used tor the sale of confec-
tions and sweetened beverages.
They point out that excess su-
gar in the diet not only is detri-
