Sugar Prevents Cavities?

Check out the headline on this wire story that recently made the rounds:

 

sugar prevents cavities 2

 

Note to the headline writers of the World Entertainment News Network [1], distributor of the story: sugar [2] and sugar alcohol [3] are NOT the same thing…as the article in question clearly states.

sub-sti-tute [4], n., One that takes the place of another; a replacement

That substitute does indeed appear to offer some defense against cavities via its antimicrobial properties [5]. And again, the article says as much.

Unfortunately, many people are apt to note only the headline. And those who do so will come away with a very wrong idea.
