    The 'real' Otzi, that is: The Leader of the Plaque: Iceman ÷tzi had bad teeth – News Watch

    The 3-D Scans reveal the mess that was Otziís mouth, especially around his back teeth. The gum tissue surrounding the rear molars had retreated almost to the tip of the root. The tooth decay is significant because it shows how starchy foods and the agriculture that created them were a part of Otziís regular diet. The team attributes his cavities to eating more breads and cereals.

    Not surprising. Grain foods promote the growth of bad bacteria. Several studies have shown that Paleolithic people had healthier teeth than their Neolithic counterparts.
