Cosa intendi per distrutta?
Comunque ti consiglio di leggere questo
interessante articolo del blog di Stephan:

"Drs. Mellanby set out to see if they could use their dietary
to cure tooth decay that was already established. They divided 62
children with cavities into three different diet groups for 6 months.
Group 1 ate their normal diet plus oatmeal (rich in phytic
Group 2 ate their normal diet plus vitamin D.
Group 3 ate a grain-free diet and took vitamin D.
"Per favore registrati qui per vedere il link :-) "In
1, oatmeal prevented healing and encouraged new cavities,
presumably due to
its ability to prevent mineral absorption. In group
2, simply adding vitamin
D to the diet caused most cavities to heal and
fewer to form. The most
striking effect was in group 3, the group eating
a grain-free diet plus
vitamin D, in which nearly all cavities healed
and very few new cavities
developed. Grains are the main source of
phytic acid in the modern diet,
although we can't rule out the
possibility that grains were promoting tooth
decay through another
mechanism as well.
Mellanby was quick to point out that diet 3 contained some carbohydrate (~45%
and was not low in sugar: "Although [diet 3] contained no bread,
porridge or other cereals, it included a moderate amount of
carbohydrates, for plenty of milk, jam, sugar, potatoes and vegetables
were eaten by this group of children."
