Cavity Proof Teeth- "Keep 32?

Keep 32 was discovered by two scientists, Jose Cordova of Yale University and Erich Astudillo from the University of Chile. They named the molecule “Keep 32″ after the 32 teeth in the mouth. The molecule is able to kill all the bacteria Streptococcus mutans, commonly found the the oral cavity. This bacteria causes tooth decay. The scientists say the molecule can be incorporated into products like mouthwash, toothpaste, and candies. Keep 32 is able to kill the bacteria in less than 60 seconds. Jose Cordova believes that the product could be in the market within 14 to 18 months. Remember, one in five Americans have a cavity !!!
