Health experts fight against junk food for better dental health
Updated: 7/20/2009 9:00:17 PM

Health experts fight against junk food for better dental health Dental health is heavily influenced by diet, and the admonition to resist sugary snacks and other junk food has been part and parcel of the advice given out by dentists for a number of years.

But as acid erosion becomes a growing problem in the U.S. and around the globe, various experts are considering new ways to convince people to take a proactive position on dental care by making junk food less available or less attractive to people.

In the U.S., one of the suggestions proposed for funding healthcare reform is to add a tax on sugary soft drinks. In addition to funding, it might also stem the tide that has resulted in Americans consuming on average three times as many sugary drinks as they did a few decades ago, according to the New England Journal of Medicine.

In other countries, even stronger proposals are being considered. Irish Dentist reports that the Irish parliament signed a law restricting advertising of foods high in salt, fat and sugar to children on TV.
