Benefits of Eating Candies

The other claim that is highly publicized against the eating of candies is that they can cause tooth decay. One thing to note, however, is that decays do not happen suddenly. Also, it is not only the consumption of candies that bring about tooth decay since other foods have a similar effect our teeth. It is common knowledge that any sugary foods offer good breeding grounds for the multiplication of bacteria in our teeth. This is, however, a problem that we can’t make much of it since most people brush their teeth as often as three times a day and therefore the risks of tooth decay for them are out of question.
