HOW, not just WHAT, we eat affects our health

Honolulu, HawaiiEating is one of the pleasures of life, and yet what we eat and, to an extent, how we eat it have an effect on our oral and general health and well-being.

Investigators are developing a greater understanding of the complex relationships between oral health and nutrition in the older subject. In a Keynote Address entitled "Oral Health, Nutrition, and AgingA Vicious Cycle", during the 82nd General Session of the International Association for Dental Research, Professor Angus Walls (University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK), describes how this understanding extends to both oral disease, particularly dental caries, and to the potential for oral health status to influence dietary choice, resulting in an unhealthy diet, low in fruits and vegetables and high in sugar intakes.

One consequence of such dietary changes may be that the individual would be at greater risk from life-threatening morbidity through cardiovascular disease and malignancy.

This presentation will explore the evidence linking oral health to diet and dietary change to oral health, with particular emphasis on the potential consequences for systemic disease.
