Can Chocolate Toothpaste Be Far Behind?

I'm kinda behind on this story, which is really inexcusable since it's news out of my own back yard. A Tulane University PhD candidate has found that an ingredient in cocoa powder is a better tooth-decay fighter than the old standby, fluoride. Turns out, not just a little better--but a lot.

But just in case people rush out to find a Snickers Bar, the British Dental Association found it necessary to remind people that chocolate bars are also made with sugar, which sort of defeats the purpose.

I say, not if you try some of the absolutely yummy sugar-free chocolates, especially those made without nasty maltitol, that are available today.
