Why Are Human Teeth So Messed Up?

Fascinating article on dental health and evolution:

Interesting indeed. I wonder how much it would affect our teeth if we were to be raised eating a mioscenic diet? (I actually tried that for a few days—it was tremendously challenging. See: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/lose-tw...nic-route/.) I remember reading that our overbites are due to cutlery, and if you raise a child without cutlery, they won't develop an overbite (at least not for that reason).

In India and much of Asia cutlery is never used to eat. It would be easy to ascertain whether or not this is the case. I am a little sceptical.

My teeth are shit. I grew up eating a high sugar diet. I always assumed the two were connected. Processed sugar is directly a result of the trade in sugar and the primary cause of our high sugar diet. Modern dentistry is palliative.

To life, not this death

I know people (from South American countries) that grew up without much cutlery, who do not have prominent overbites. I do not know how Indians and Asians fare, the ones I know use cutlery as far as I know.
