Ca Ca Do Doo, I put my quotes in quotation marks. They are EXACTLY as I read them in their original form.
You lecturing me about the quote function is like Yosemite Sam lecturing Bill Gates about the Internet.
I had always understood that the stereotypical 'bad teeth' of the Brits had more to do with rationing and poor nutrition from about 1939 to 1970.
I have to admit,when it come's to bad teeth the Brit's have nothing on the Inuitt,it may be because of the lack of dentists but they love their sweets. and that doesnt help.
Kakato, I am only guessing here, but I assume sweets are not indigenous to Inuit country, they are an imported food. So it is quite possible that Inuit donít have any built in resistance to tooth decay, probably donít know how to care for the teeth after eating sweets etc.
That may explain the tooth decay in Inuits. If they stuck to their own, native foods, something they have been traditionally eating for generations, I assume there would be very little tooth decay.
Well, the British are the biggest candy eaters in the world.
"They chew through plays and they chew through films and they chew in trains," complained the London Daily Mail. "They suck lollies through Macbeth and Hamlet, and they while away Tennessee Williams with the chocolates with the scrumptious centers." The Mail's complaint was not another anti-American outburst, but a cultural critique of the world's most ravenous candy eaters: the British. Unfazed by calorie counts, the English last year ate an average 8 oz. of candy weekly, nearly double the sweet tooth of any other European country and well above the 5.6 oz. a week the U.S. puts away. All this amounts to a big rock candy mountain of 1.4 billion Ibs. of sweets annually. For Britain's 800 candy companies and 250,000 candy-peddling retailers, the sweet smell of success adds up to $800 million a year.
