I went to the Dentist today to check out the calculus deposits that have sprung out of nowhere while on the meat diet.
“I have never seen this much tartar deposits in the crevices of the teeth!” Is what the dentist told me. He has been practicing for over ten years.
What is going on? One other person mentioned how she noticed more calculus while on a carb-restricted diet. Has this happened to anyone else?
I am going to question Dr. Eades of Protein Power and Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple. I will post any response I receive.
I’ve been low-carbing for about 2 years now without incident. As a matter of fact my teeth/mouth situation has improved, so I’ve no clue why you have the increased calculus. It may be another overlooked factor?
BTW, it’s Dr. Eades, Michael Eades (M. Eades)…so I can see where you got the “Meades” from!
This has happened to a few others as well. Many comments on Protein Power, http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/fast-food/meat-and-mortality/#more-2770
One person mentioned the minerals in water. My region has high calcium and magnesium limestone and I assume highly mineralized water as we have our own well.
I don’t think it’s beyond the realm of possibility that a meat-heavy diet would increase calcium availability. grains are real mineral blockers.
