Is it True That Soy Milk Tooth Decay?

Soy milk is low in fat compared to cow's milk. However, a recent study shows that the potential for soy milk tooth decay is greater. Research shows that bacteria found in the mouth produce acids 5-6 times more when consuming soy milk instead of cow's milk.

Acid in the mouth contribute to the formation of plaque on teeth, which eventually lead to tooth decay and formation of holes.

Scientists involved in the research said the findings suggest that the beverage made from soybeans potentially higher cause cavities than cow's milk. Nevertheless, it still needs further research before scientists know for sure whether soy milk can seriously damage your teeth. Therefore, new research carried out in a petri dish in the laboratory.

William Bowen, professor emeritus of microbiology and immunology at the Center for Oral Biology, University of Rochester, who was not involved. the research, said the potential for tooth decay to which every substance depends on how you use it. Drink a glass of soy milk, for example, there is most likely not damage the teeth. But let babies drink soy milk in a bottle all day can cause it. In contrast, cow's milk is known to trigger the cavities, no matter how much milk is consumed.

"These findings are suspicious, but need more evidence to support such research," said Bowen.

Eric Reynolds, a researcher from the Dental School, University of Melbourne in Australia, and his team chose four brands of soy-based drinks and two brands of milk cow for their experiments. Each milk and then mixed with the bacterium Streptococcus mutans. *** [LIVESCIENCE | KORAN TEMPO 3941]
