Probably not: The main cavity causing bacteria is streptococcus mutans. They take in sugars from our diet and convert it to acid which in turn, eats away at the enamel of teeth. Good brushing habits and smart eating habits like minimizing ones refined sugar consumption are the best line of defense against developing cavities.

Are there any noticeable differences between lactobacillus rhamnosus and lactobacillus rhamnosus gg?
Doubt you'll notice: The GG strain is a mutant that supposedly has remarkable effects as a probiotic. If you believe everything you read (mostly from obscure sources -- 80% cure of peanut allergy, major protection from colds and so forth), you'd be reading uncritically.

Sure: Probiotics are just collections of bacteria and the various bacteria do not interact with each other. You can take as many different types as you wish with no negative effects.

Sups.

Are there drug/herb interactions taking 30mg escitalopram, 300 mg modafinil and 400mg rhodiola rosea?
Rhodeola Rosea: I would not recommend the combination, since it has MAO (mono amine oxidase) inhibiting properties, which contraindicates combining it with serotonergic agents such as lexapro, (escitalopram) due to potential for serotonin syndrome. Also, no enough scientific evidence to suggest its use to supplement mood elevation. ...Read more
