    Very interesting collection of strategies! I like the strategy of removing the sugars that the bacteria use for invading the mouth.

    Genetic engineering is super cool! But, in the context of agriculture, I personally prefer strategies that use a more holistic approach and try to use what we know from nature to try to create a balanced and healthy ecosystem. Unfortunately these more “organic” strategies are not compatible with a rapidly changing environment and the insanely high production demand of the world we live in. These are tools that we want to use to cover up the symptoms of a sick world, not to treat the underlying causes. Continuing in this direction is unfortunately going to cost us a large amount of the world’s diversity 😞
