The surprising benefits of mucus
A recent study conducted in Canada showed that human mucus can prevent harmful bacteria from adhering to and damaging the tooth’s surface.
– Mucus is found on linings of the body such as the mouth, cervix, lungs and intestines
– Researchers have suggested that a synthetic mucus could be developed that could potentially provide an effective preventative measure against infection
– Always consult your dentist if you’re worried about your teeth
“Researchers said the artificial mucus could one day be added to toothpaste or chewing gum to help fight against bacteria in the mouth.”
