Daily wellness tip: Best and worst candy for teeth

There is one immutable truth to Halloween candies: they are all bad for you, says guest blogger, Chicago-area dentist Dino Mantis. He doesn't want to spoil your fun, but he does want you to know that some are worse than others.

To help, Mantis has separated Halloween candies into five distinct types and rated, on a scale from 1-10 (1 being good for your teeth, 10 being the absolute worst cavity-causers), their proclivity for causing cavities.

Taffy and hard candy are the two worst offenders. Use this Halloween guide to safeguarding your children's teeth, Mantis says but, "as always, be wary of excess consumption of any trickery treat."

Fear Factor Score: 9 out of 10
"Traditionally, dentists have always known that the longer a food sticks to the teeth the longer bacteria has to feed on it to produce cavity-causing acid," Mantis said. "One of the best ways to avoid cavities during Halloween is to avoid the sticky candy that can plaster your teeth and wedge itself into the nooks and crannies of your mouth."

Tickle Fights?

Somehow I doubt this is what they meant... I could be wrong, tho.

ImageLab Instant Slide Scanner

Click the title of the post to view the site, and/or purchase one. At $99 it's a steal... I think. I honestly have nothing to compare it to.

ThinkGeek also has Ton-Ton sleeping bags. Just sayin'.

Dana's Basement Blowout - Everything Must Go!

Help Dana clean his house out by buying some of his "shit" on eBay:

Help stimulate the economy.

Items so far include an [adult swim] poker set, some Captain EO purple 3D glasses (the ones you're supposed to put back,) and a professional mic that may or may not have been used to record many of the Snydecasts you've heard in the past.

HFCS is A-OK...S

But just in case you're not convinced, check out Dublin Dr. Pepper and Galco Soda Pop Stop for real cane sugar soft drinks. Tell 'em Ken and Dana sent you. They won't know what you're talking about, but I think networking is important.
