Where did you learn that nonsense? I hope you didn't pay much for it.

Sorry, not true. The archeological evidence runs counter to that: 
they find teeth with a great deal of wear, but it isn't until large 
amounts of sugar begin to be used by the general populace (and we've 
already covered that ground) that you find much in the way of decay. 
Again, I don't know where you're getting your info from, but it seems 
to be heavily influenced by urban legend.

And please learn to trim your posts. I just cut off the remnants of 
the rest of the digest that you were replying to. As in about 6 times 
the length of your reply. I don't pay by the bandwidth, but some people do.
