Since the 1890s oral biological researchers have been interested in the idea that strenuous mastication of unprocessed food will stimulate proper oral-facial growth and occlusal relationships. Conversely, lack of such function due to consumption of refined food is one hypothesis among many for the etiology of malocclusion in industrialized humans. Adequately controlled experimental testing of the idea has been limited to rats. To investigate the "disuse" theory in a larger-bodied and more… CONTINUE READING
