Blog: Martyr to the cause?

A battle is raging, and raisins are the reason. Nutritionists are divided over whether the dried fruit are good or bad for our teeth.
As raisins are sweet and sticky, they are perceived as leading to cavities. However, the phytochemicals they contain may benefit oral health by fighting bacteria that cause gum disease and cavities, a US dental expert has found.
What to do? I guess we need some testing here. Any volunteers? All you need to do is eat a load of raisins, for a long time, and never brush your teeth, as bloggers over at Improbable Research gamely suggest.
Now if the research involved the fermented form of the grape rather than the dehydrated form, they might be onto a winner.
