How different diets affect our teeth: a dentist's opinionPictolic
Many girls in pursuit of a beautiful body sitting in a hard, sometimes even extreme dieting, absolutely not thinking about how this experience will affect other factors of their life. For example, the power mode turned out to be even affects the condition of the teeth.
How, said the chief doctor Beauty Line, a dentist with extensive experience Marina Kolesnichenko. You would be surprised what damage a raw food diet, vegetarianism and other fancy of the power supply system is applied to the teeth.
A raw food diet
Raw foodists somehow believe (and try to prove it to others) that man is much better digesting it raw and not heat-treated. And no research can't convince them otherwise, so every year raw foodists are becoming more and more, and the diet based on the consumption of some fruits and vegetables, sure is catching on.
But the opinions of the adherents of the raw food diet and nutritionists are very different. Last, trying to explain the futility (or harm?) consumption of raw food, operate on the fact that many years ago the ancestors of modern humans guessed it: processed foods are much more nutritious raw. In addition, during heat treatment kills all possible bacteria and parasites. Needless to say that the food in as a "bonus" is getting more and more delicious?
And recently scientist Dzh. Climaco failed to prove that the raw food diet is fraught with health teeth. His study showed that raw foodists are more pronounced erosion of tooth enamel. Most likely because people just can't digest plant fibers that enter the body along with raw food.
Though vegetarians do not eat a "grass" and fruit-vegetables as their fellow raw foodists, but to completely forgo meat and food of animal origin. And doing it for humanitarian reasons.
It is important to note that vegetarianism has long been split into several currents. Main of them — veganism (veganism, eating foods of only plant origin), lactovegetarians (allowed milk and dairy products), ovovegetarians (milk is prohibited, but tolerated eggs). And it's not all varieties of the supply system, but they are about the same.
One of the main "extreme" are the adherents of fructarians (by the way, the kind of raw food diet). They eat nothing but fruit, only occasionally indulge themselves soaked in water cereals, nuts and seeds. Of course, provided that at the time of collecting the plants had sustained damage! Here they are caring these guys!
And while they worry about each tree and travinochka, their own health is under threat. The greatest danger this diet is for teeth, since it entails erosion, tooth decay and gum disease. All because the berries, fruits and citrus fruits contain large amounts of sugar and fruit acids. And, as we know from an early age, sugar is the main enemy of teeth.
In addition the vegetarians, and raw foodists, discovered a severe shortage of vitamin B12. This nutrient is not produced by our body and ingested with food. The richest foods that contain this vitamin are beef, lamb, pork, liver, fish, rabbit and eggs. So, abandoning meat and eggs, vegetarians automatically deprive yourself of essential vitamin that the body needs for the formation of red blood cells.
From the point of view of medicine, the mono-diet is perhaps the most senseless diet. But naive girl, having read the headlines about how "Kim Kardashian lost weight in some pineapple" or "Singer Beyonce eats green products", I think that it really works. In fact, most of the mono-diet is taken from the head of instagram guru and don't have any scientific evidence.
Along with this power system can be hazardous to health, including the health of our teeth. Due to the rejection of all the products (except 2-3 prescribed in the diet), the body loses necessary vitamins and minerals, for example, calcium, fluoride and iron which are necessary for the formation of strong tooth enamel and reduce the risk of bleeding gums.
These and other useful substances are contained in products that mono generally prohibit, based on the fact that they lead to weight gain. These include beans, nuts, fish, sour cream and eggs. As a rule, eat fruits on mono, too, is impossible, because they have a lot of sugar, and "sugar is evil!".
Of course, the use of sports supplements can not be called a separate diet (fortunately, so far, no one bodybuilder didn't think to replace sportpilot full meals). However, this topic also should be mentioned in our list, because some of "vitonas" is so fond of different powders that they forget about the importance of proper nutrition.
The intent of the producers sportpit weight gainers, protein powders, amino acids, vitamins and fat burners should increase strength, endurance and muscle growth. In addition, these supplements supposedly improve metabolism and the gastrointestinal tract. In fact our body is designed a little differently...
Impossible to eat as much cheese, eggs and meat to get the protein, the dream of bodybuilders. So they fill in the gaps with powder protein. The body can't recycle such large amounts of proteins and amino acids. This severely affected the liver and increases blood levels of uric acid.
When urea accumulates in the bones, is the destruction of their structure. This applies in particular to the temporomandibular joint. Lovers of sports supplements often have problems with the teeth as the bone tissue becomes weaker, they are loose and crumbling.
Now you know how important it is to follow not only your figure, but also for the organism as a whole. Because the diet depends literally all of our lives! Let's make sure that she was healthy!
