The relation between diet and caries in the South African Bantu


, : The relation between diet and caries in the South African Bantu. J. Dent. Res, 16: 431-441

The distribution of caries among the Bantu (age 15 to 25 years) from Transkei, Portuguese East Africa, Bechuanaland, Basutoland and Nyasaland has been investigated and for 609 of the natives from Transkei the incidence has been correlated with the consumption of different items of the diet, in an attempt to estimate the effect of the introduction of European foodstuffs.
