Prevent Tooth Decay With Coconut Oil?

A study from this past September proves a very high possibility!

The use of digested and undigested coconut oil was closely studied on various strains of streptococcus bacteria, a common oral bacteria we all carry.  Streptococcus mutans (or S. mutans) are the type of bacterium that is the leading cause of tooth decay world wide.   Basically, coconut oil in it's undigested state had no effect, but digested, it stopped the bacteria from growing!  This is a GREAT article, get the rest of the details HERE!
