Diets high in phytate-rich grains and low in Vitamin D cause cavities
"Two facts suggested that the cereal intake might tend to neutralize the effect of vitamin D in checking or inhibiting the spread of caries in children. Experiments had shown that cereals, especially oatmeal, tended to counteract vitamin D in producing perfect calcification of the teeth in dogs unless this vitamin were present in abundance. In our first investigation on children we had observed that the diet containing most cereal, especially oatmeal, was associated with the greatest spread of caries. This observation seemed to receive support in some investigations of Boyd and Drain, who found that in- the teeth of forty-five diabetic children who were being fed on the standard diets used for the treatment of this disease, caries was arrested; later, in conjunction with Nelson," they fed thirteen non-diabetic children on a similar diet, and again found that any active caries present at the beginning of the investigation was arrested. The diabetic diet given was devoid of cereals and rich in vitamin D."

In fact, according to a study published in the British Medical Journal, cavities and tooth decay could potentially be reversed with diet. (1)
A study was performed on 62 children with cavities, and they were divided into three different diet groups. Group 1 ate a standard diet plus oatmeal (rich in phytic acid). Group 2 consumed a normal diet and supplemented with vitamin D. Group 3 ate a grain-free diet and took vitamin D.
The results found that Group 1 who had a diet high in grains and phytic acid had an increase in cavities. Group 2 had improvements in cavities and less form. Group 3, who followed a grain-free diet with nutrient-rich foods like vegetables, fruits, meat, milk and took vitamin D, saw the greatest improvements — nearly all cavities were healed. (2)
This study, along with the backing of many doctors and dentists, proves we have been misinformed about what causes cavities and how to reverse cavities naturally.
