    • traditional cultures helped …
    • teeth helped
      Incisors are like tiny chisels, with sharp, flat ends. These teeth are used for cut and chop food. Next, your four canine teeth are pointy and also sharp. They help tear food. Eight premolars have a completely different shape. They are bigger, stronger, and have ridges – perfect for crushing and grinding food. Last, molars are the toughest of the bunch. They are even wider and stronger than premolars, and have more ridges. Molars work closely with your tongue to help swallow food.
    • taste helped
      Five taste centers allow us to determine which foods are enjoyable (sweet) and which might be harmful (bitter).
      Unfortunately, our permanent sweet tooth can lead to unhealthy choices.
