... to all know something about CBH
« on: 05/05/2004 10:40:35 »
My name is Aurelio Cellini and j work in a dental institute.


In the last period many web site like BBC News, Good Health, New Scientist….. have spoken about previous articles (december… april 2000) regarding the studies of Takashi Ooshima and his staff in Osaka University concerning CBH (cocoa bean husk).


Research shows that the cocoa butter in the chocolate coats the teeth and may help protect them by preventing plaque from forming. Scientist believe that ancti-bacterial agents in cocoa beans offset its high sugar levels. CBH, the outer part of the bean, wich usually goes waste in the chocolate production, is a potent source of these agents. Research has olso shown that parts of the cocoa bean, the main ingredient of chocolate, thwards mouth bacteria and stops dental decay.

The only news j know, date back to four years ago, so if you have some informations concerning CBH, the actual state of clinical research, the way for testing CBH, if someone is now producing CBH … and so on.

j am very interested on this argument and j should be very grateful if you could help me.


Thank you so much.


Regards


Aurelio Cellini

I don't know anything about it, but any reason to think chocolate is good for me is good news!

Oh boy, if chocolate is good for you, and you could eat all you want without tooth decay -- all we've got to do is put the husk back into it.  I'll vote for that.

Mmm..come to think about it, I have eaten quite a lot of chocolate and every time I went to the dentist, there are no sign of tooth decay what so every, only a bit of staining.
