Wasabi for the prevention of dental caries
from Dental Health Magazine
Wasabi, which is a pungent green horseradish that is usually served with Japanese sushi, has been found to prevent tooth decay. The chemical compound that is found in wasabi known as isothiocyanates inhibits the growth of Streptococcus mutans which is the bacteria that causes dental caries. The effect is the result of wasabi's ability to interfere with adherence of the sucrose-dependent cells.
