Is anyone here familiar enough with the topic to make a comment about the relation to tyramine formation? One source at least stated that the lactic acid bacteria were the ones relevant to the formation of tyramine from tyrosine, and hence the problems with hypertensive crises.

Thank you for your opinion and suggestion.
These reviews are meant for readers who would like to delve deeper into the subject. The reviews are placed in the “further reading” – section because the Wikipedia guideline for this section read: “… publications that would help interested readers learn more about the article subject.

Tooth decay & Dental Caries
I am missing a section linking the LABs to the process of tooth decay. I am not aware how many of the LABs are linked or can be linked to this process, but at least the Streptococcus sobrinus, Streptococcus mutans and the entire genus of Lactobacillus are. I am currently investigating if lactic acid is the only acid involved in tooth decay. If anybody has a good source on this particular issue it will be much appreciated.
Yes, Dental Caries should be definitely mentioned. Would also be VERY interesting to know are these drinks as good for your (dental) health as claimed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soured_milk
Interestingly, also hard cheese like Emmental or Edam has probably a pH below 7.
Luckily, all tap water has been adjusted >7 with Calcium Carbonate for example in Finland, because pH below 7 corrodes the water pipes.
Even if something is safe for Enamel, it may not be safe for Dentin!
