After three years, 30 percent of the people who used mouthwash twice or more a day progressed to pre-diabetes or diabetes, compared to 20 percent of those who used the rinses less frequently.

I'm hoping this is one of those "saccharine causes cancer" type findings that shows that you'd have to eat a mountain of the stuff to increase your risks of cancer.

1. Why didn’t they have a control group of fat Puerto Ricans who used no mouth wash at all?
2. It’s my understanding that, in just minutes after using mouth wash, your mouth is filled back up with replacements for the critters you killed.

Or there is a connection between the bacteria in your mouth and diabetes that science has not yet discovered. Mouthwash doesn't discriminate between the good and bad bacteria.
