It's that time of year when kids and brokers go crazy on all of the candy we try to limit during most of the year. This halloween we say, "Let the kids eat candy!"

During Halloween, there are some pretty spooky numbers:

  • 158 million Americans will participate in Halloween
  • More than $2 billion will be spent on 600 million pounds of candy (the weight of 6 Titanic ships)
  • The average American comsumes 3.4 pounds of candy
  • Kids consume an average of 7,000 calories or 13 big macs
  • Trick or treaters consume about 3 cups of sugar or 220 sugar packets

Authored by Renaissance Dental's Chief Science Officer Dr. Jed Jacobson, "Diabetes and Your Dentist" discusses the important relationship between oral health and diabetes.

"As a dentist, I like to think of myself as a disease detective. That's because as a dentist, I'm often the first person who sees the signs of diseases like diabetes. Many times, people don't go to their physician because they think they're health- when they're really not. Detecting diseases like diabetes is where good oral health can lead to good overall health," explains Dr. Jacobson.
