Today’s Impossible Questions was “What percentage of adults admit they drink out of a milk carton at home, but only when no one is around?” Let’s explore if mom right (again) about this age-old discussion…
The answer to our questions is “40% of adults in a recent survey admit they drink out of a milk carton at home, but only when no one is around.”
Adult mouths may contain 500 to 1,000 different types of bacteria as part of the human flora and oral microbiology, but about 100 to 200 species may live in them at any given time. Those who care for their teeth and have a relatively clean mouth have 1,000 to 100,000 bacteria living on each tooth surface. Those that do not have a clean mouth have between 100 million and 1 billion bacteria on each tooth.
