Cosmiverse is back!
2002-04-09 05:55:09 AM  
oh, now that makes sense.

And it leaves your breath springtime fresh.

Now they need to see if the same holds true for vodka

Shouldn't you all be at the boobies?

I better start drinking it with every meal just to be on the safe side.

I have a question. Maybe it's stupid, but I haven't been able to figure it out. Is Cosmiverse like BB-Spot, or do they really believe themselves?

My teeth are clean!!! So what if they are also brown. If they prove similar findings from smoking, I am dropping my dental insurance.

"chlorogenic acid, nicotinic acid and trigonelline prevent decay-causing Streptococcus mutans "

Big, scientific sounding words. Must be from a reputable source!

You too can have strong, healthy, yellow teeth!

Hey, maybe now they'll develop tannin-free clear coffee and everything will be groovy.

This message brought to you by the makers of Nescafe.

Anybody taken a good look at somebody in their 50s that drinks a lot of coffee and smokes?

Can you say 'teeth rotting out of their mouth?'

Good. I knew you could.

For god's sake, drink your coffee, then brush your teeth.

Sure, if you like black teeth.

Is this real or should it have a satire tag? I wonder that about every Cosmiverse article, and I can't tell. It sounds legitimate, just a bit unbelievable.

I told my wife to brush with my Tijuana Toothpaste every night. The high saline content helps to destroy plague.
2002-04-09 12:56:12 PM  

Sure helps my teeth.:

No shiznit. The coffee at my office would kill an elk. Bacteria stands no chance.

Prevents tooth decay -- maybe... Still stains the teeth something terrible though.

I actually asked my dentist about this last week, whether he's seen this study. He just shrugged and said it was nothing new under the sun -- that when he was in dental school 10 yrs ago, the "in" thing was cheese. They would have the dental students serve as guinea pigs and rince their mouths out with cheese solutions, and whatever the "substance of the week" was that they happened to be studying. (After not being allowed to brush your teeth for at least 24 hrs)... Then they would take bacterial culture samples, etc....

Coffee has caffeine. Caffeine while good and good for you, is horrible on teeth. Apparently that's all I know.
2002-04-09 03:22:22 PM  
I've always brushed my teeth with coffee grounds.
2002-04-09 09:10:13 PM  
heh.. cosmiverse is really's all starting to fall into place now, the end is near my friends.
2002-04-09 09:22:22 PM  
Jim Dunlop: thanks for sharing that, next time I need to vomit something back out, I will read your post!

:shudder: Cheese solutions?!

Yet another reason not to be a dentist.

Concerning the story...
I went to the dentist last week and I have been a loyal coffee drinker since childhood. The dentitst's assistant looked at my gums and found a "tissue buildup" around my gums and asked if I consume tobacco products. I replied, "No, (a little timidly) It's probobly coffee grounds!". The dentist checked and just wiped the tissue off my gums; he said it was "common", Thank God, i did not want to part from my beloved beverage!

As we pass through the supermarket aisles perpetuating another generation of dental decay, obesity, weakened bones, diabetes, hyperactivity, emotional imbalance and dysfunctional immune systems, we must ask ourselves the compelling question of why we consume sugar, and especially, why we give sugar to children.

Great. I drink like five cups a day. From the vendine machine. It's sad. Someone please set up a coffee fund for people like me.
