Concerning the Etiology (Cause) of Dental Caries
Dr. Miller is the person who supposedly "created" the acidogenic theory of tooth decay, the modern tooth decay theory that is believed today. I say "created" in quotes because it appears he did not attempt to create a new theory, but simply that he was able to demonstrate one way in which a tooth can dissolve through acid-fermentation. This is not a conclusive theory, but rather an interesting experiment according to dentist C. F. Bodecker from Germany.
He quotes a Lancet article written October 21, 1905, regarding the cause of dental caries. This quote discusses the orignal dental caries theory by Dr. Miller. (Quote is being used for educational purposes and was cited in Dental Cosmos [Volume 56, Issue 6, June, 1914, pp. 718-721]
"There seemed to be a general belief, at any rate among those practicing dentistry, that the cause of caries had been found, and what was lost sight of was the fact that all that Dr. Miller had done was to demonstrate the phenomena of caries, and although his research had shown the channels in which further investigation should be pursued, the actual cause of caries was still unknown, and is to the present day unknown."
More About the Cause of Dental Caries
Again, Dr. Miller showed one method of teeth decaying, through acid-fermentation, and this was not considered a conclusive theory at the time.
"If we wish to deal with dental disease we must first of all possess a correct knowledge of its cause. Do we possess that knowledge? It is now more than fifteen years since Dr. W. D. Miller's excellent work on the 'Micro-organisms of the Mouth' appeared, in which he clearly demonstrated that caries of the teeth was due to the abstraction of the lime salts by acid, followed by the peptonizing action of bacteria, the acids being formed from the fermentation of carbohydrate food."
Even in 1905, dentists didn't think we possed the correct knowledge as to the true cause of dental disease. Also note the abstraction (removal) of lime salts (minerals) always preceded the decay said to be caused by bacteria.
I had several very painful cavities postpartum (after having twins) that kept me up all night in pain and made it so I could barely eat... After following the advice in this book accruately my tooth pain subsided within 24 hours and no longer hurt at all, my teeth also look nicer and my gums no longer bleed and are a nice pink color. -J. Steuernol, Canada
"The practical advice in this book really seems to be reversing my tooth decay!!! Hallelujah brother!!! The dentist wanted me to have two major root canals immediately and two other teeth filled. When I asked him if there was anything I could do with nutrition or supplements to get mu teeth to heal, he said "maybe you could slow the decay down a little bit" but that essentially the answer was no.
That dental visit was three mobnths ago and my teeth have stopped aching all together, are way less temperature sensitive, and feel generally stronger.
Most of us have been totally disempowered regarding the health of our teeth. This information has changed that for me. I bought the book for $28 anyway though. What a bargain, The dental work was going to cost well over $4000.00 no wonder dentists don't seem open to this stuff working! Talk about a biased perspective!!!
Think I'm excited, you will be too if you use this info to take tooth health into your own hands!"

"Not only is Cure Tooth Decay a practical guide to teach parents how to raise healthy children (with healthy teeth), it is also a helpfull tool for adults who have suffered with poor dental health and/or chronic disease. I would also highly recommend this book to people who are looking for things they can do to protect their bones, and their overall health, as they age. In other words, this book is a must read for everyone interested in improving their health." Pam Killeen New York Times nestselling Author
"Ramiel, You (along with Weston Price) saved my teeth. Was supposed to get a root canal (which I had no money to pay for). Tooth was in pain. After three weeks on the diet I can feel a big difference, tooth doesn't hurt now and feels like it's healing. Thanks so much. Unbelievable!" - Leroy, Utah
My cavity has gotten smaller! Once you are set free from being a slave to modern foods of commerce author continues to explain how the ancient people ate. They were healthy, strong and good looking. They had no cavities. They had no illness until familiar western culture came to visit them. If you are reading this review I am sure you understnad something is not right in the world. That we are born to live under a certain hypnosis. That we are taught to give away our responsibility to "people with authority", and those people cannot even take care of themselves. I recommend this book if you want the way out."Ranko, Croatia
