Once Again, The Mayans Were Right

A new study has indicated that an extract of cocoa powder is more effective than fluoride in fighting cavities. Tulane University doctoral candidate Arman Sadeghpour said his research revealed that the extract, a white crystalline powder, hardens enamel, making teeth less susceptible to decay.

In the name of science, we've been trying the Mayan diet, which requires that we consume chocolate at every meal. Not only have our teeth been free of the cavity creeps, but they look really white. And we feel better than ever. Euphoric, really. Oh, wait, that might be the coca leaves.
