Suck on this for healthy teeth

licoriceI think several folks when I had told them I heard this in a science/health related news story thought I was nuts. But now I see this article so I have some proof my madness is at least founded!
We are entering a whole new era in dentistry. One in which we'll be able to eat candy to prevent cavities. Specifically, we'll be able to suck on a licorice lollipop....

So one day soon we'll be able to prevent cavities with lollipops. Maybe next we'll have plaque scraping treats and edibles that floss for us. Though it is still a thing of the present, this gives me hope that a trip to the dentist will one day be a thing of the past.
