Mucus Combats Cavities

21st / July / 2017

Strange as it may seem but the mucus that naturally exists in the body could also be protecting our teeth against cavities.

This is not to be confused with well-known nasal mucus. Research now suggests that mucus found in different internal linings contains various proteins that help to protect the teeth.

This mucus can be found in the lungs, intestine and cervix.

According to the Huffington Post, scientists are trying to develop a synthetic mucus which “which they would add into toothpaste and chewing gum”. This should cut down on needless visits to the dentist.
