"So why don’t our teeth fit properly in the jaw? The short answer is not that our teeth are too large, but that our jaws are too small to fit them in."

    I think this guy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weston_Price discovered lots of this stuff studying indigenous people though I'm too lazy to actually read the article.

      did actually read a bit "(particularly flour, sugar, and modern processed vegetable fats) cause nutritional deficiencies that are a cause of many dental issues and health problems. The dental issues he observed include the proper development of the facial structure (to avoid overcrowding of the teeth) in addition to dental caries. This work received mixed reviews, and continues to be cited today by proponents of many different theories, including controversial dental and nutritional theories."

    Now I have evidence that crunching ice is not bad for my teeth but actually good for my jaw.

    Take that everyone who told me to stop crunching my ice cubes! ;-)

      There aren't many things more satisfying than a cup full of "good" ice (see: Sonic) for crunching.

        We have an ice/water dispenser at work that makes nugget ice (aka, Sonic ice). There are people who fill a cup of ice and eat it like candy at their desks. When it broke earlier this year, I thought people were going to revolt. I replaced it quickly and all was right with the world again.

    Maybe a few cycles of Tren would be what the dentist ordered...

    (As if many guys even need an excuse.)
    I have never dabbled in PEs or even basic test (HRT as I believe it is called now), so I don't have any first hand experience, however a few gym bros who talk about this sort of thing said that there are substances one can take where it feels like everything grows.

    Ice crunching sounds a little more appealing: less risk, lower cost, fewer legal issues.
