A nonsecretor with no cavities? Never had fluoridated water? How is that possible? I don't know, I guess I can't get all the bad luck of a nonsecretor in every aspect of my life. So, however it's possible, I'm very happy about it.
I finally got to the dentist for a cleaning and exam yesterday. The hygenist gave me more pointers about how to take care of my gums (I tend to get a little gum disease now and then). The dentist said what he always says...he doesn't see teeth as nice as mine very often. I told him I don't eat much sugar, haven't since my teens, but he thought I must be from someplace they add flouride to the water. Nope. Not a drop. My baby teeth were full of cavities, but somehow my adult teeth were spared that fate. I skipped the fluoride treatment, of course.
I'm still eating my nonnie avocados though (when my son doesn't eat them all)...you're never too old to get a cavity, especially when you're a non-secretor.
