Evidence that the combination of
an adequate diet and a restricted use
of candy and soft drinks results in
fewer decayed teeth in children is
shown in a dental study of 163 boys
and girls at the children's farm home

of home economics research staff
Results of the study are published
in the December edition of the
Journal of dental research. The in

conducted by Dr. Demetrios M.
Hadjimarkos and Dr. Clara Storvick.

found that the children at the W.C.
