      My dentist is amazed at the high amounts of plaque I generate. I've gotten the gum inflamation under control through the use of certain solutions (she doesn't like them but she can't argue with the results) and she says I need an electric toothbrush but she says my plaque is so high despite my care.

      She then asked me, "Do you eat a lot of carbs?"

      well, yeah. that's why i'm fat. but i eat a lot of vegan macrobiotic food. Boiled grains like rices, buckweat and quinoa.
      4 or 5 days of the week these foods are my main diet with beans.

      Turns out such a diet causes more plaque buildup. who knew?
