Why Raw Foodists Have Such Bad Teeth
Today I want to talk about the poor dental health of raw
foodists. But first, a reminder:

I have over 12 years of experience in the raw food movement.
I’ve written several books on the subject, I’ve had one of
the very first raw food websites on the Internet, and I’ve
been in touch with tens of thousands of people following
this diet over the years.
I’ve met most of the raw-food leaders personally, and I’ve
even worked with many of them. I’ve even personally coached
hundreds of people to succeed with a raw food lifestyle.
And after all of these years, I’ve come to the conclusion
that raw-foodists have the worst dental health of any other
“health group” in the world.
Every week, I have raw foodists contact me. They often tell
the same story “I had great results on the raw food diet, until
I started having problems with my teeth.”
What I have observed is:
* I high incidence of dental decay among raw-foodists, after
they switch to the diet
* A high incidence of gum recession and enamel erosion among
* Sudden, drastic & dramatic dental problems that occur
typically 1 to 3 years after a person has switched to the
raw food diet, and tend to persist overtime.
A study done in Germany found that when subjects switched to
a raw-food diet, they experienced a higher incidence of
I have gone through a series of dental problems myself as a
direct result of following the raw-food diet incorrectly
(and I’m not even talking about eating a lot of dates
here), and I have met at least several hundred people who
have gone through similar issues.
I know several leaders of the raw-food movement who have
experience an increasing number of dental problems on the
raw food diet, and still won’t come clean about it and
explain to their followers why this happens.
The “weak link” of the raw diet
There’s a lot of positive aspects to the raw food diet. But
the issue of dental health is the real weak link. A person
can experience lots of wonderful beneficial effects on the
raw food diet, but notice their dental health go downhill.
In my experience, it’s also the number one reason why
people quit on the diet after being successful with it for
It doesn’t happen to every raw-foodist. It probably happens
to the large majority however, and there is a direct
correlation between the switch to the raw diet and the
development of dental problems.
The Two Culprits
At this point, if you have the least interest in eating raw
foods, you should start reading very, very closely.
Dental decay is not caused by eating the wrong diet. That’s
right. Dental decay is actually a *transmittable disease*.
Dental decay is the result of the proliferation of certain
types of bacteria in the oral environment. The bacteria
eliminate acid waste that eat into your teeth and cause
There are only TWO reasons why raw-foodists experience more
problems when they moved to the diet. But before we look at
them, let’s take a look at what is NOT the cause of these
problems. So raw-foodists DON’T have problems with their
- They don’t eat enough greens
- They don’t get the proper ratio of calcium/phosphorus
- They are not consuming “super nutrition”
- They are not consuming enough calories
- They eat too many acid forming foods like nuts and seeds
All of the reasons above are NOT why raw-foodists get
problems with their teeth. The only two reasons why
raw-foodists get problems with their teeth are:
- Underlying issues (the bacteria count)
Once you understand this simple concept, you’ll be able to
eradicate decay for life.
What happens is that when people move into the raw-food
diet, they are basically a time-bomb as far as their dental
health is concerned. Their bacteria count is a little too
high, but not high enough to cause major problems.
Suddenly, they dump a bunch of sugar into their mouths. This
sugar creates a giant feast for the bacteria who feed on
So in that sense, the introduction of a higher quantity of
natural sugar is the determining factor. This sugar can be
in various forms… it doesn’t matter for the bacteria who
feed on them! There is no difference between white sugar and
banana sugar when it comes to increasing the bacteria count
in the mouth!
And this sugar is plentiful in the raw food diet. We’re
- Fresh fruits (bananas, mangoes, etc.)
- Fruit juices
- Dried fruits
- Nuts and seeds (which stick to the teeth)
- Raw food “bars” and dehydrated treats
- Smoothies (that’s right)
- Green smoothies (that’s right)
- Coconut water
Now… here’s where it gets interesting. Sugar is food for
Normally, you want your bacteria count to be as low as
possible. You want to avoid bacteria forming in to
*colonies* and creating their own little civilization in
If your oral environment is really clean… it doesn’t
really matter if you eat dates all day. If the bacteria
count is low, you can do that without problems.
So although the *precipitating* factor that creates problem
for raw-foodists is the introduction of more sugar, the
*real* problem are the underlying issues, so the bacteria
The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a
bad situation is to take active control of your oral
environment. Just controlling your diet does not address the
root of the problem.
