40 percent of footballers have tooth decay.

A study released today in the United Kingdom shows that about 40 percent of footballers have active tooth decay. This the result of a study carried out by Professor Ian Needleman of University College London Eastman Dental Institute and involved players in several clubs including Manchester United, West Ham and Southampton all in the U.K.

The professor attributed the tooth decay prevalence to ignorance in sport and acidic/ sugary drinks associated with sports.
