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.

Potential references[edit]

From [1]. See discussion: --Ronz (talk) 18:05, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

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. The Further reading section (…) should normally not duplicate the content of the References section” (WP:FURTHER).

The Wikipedia content guideline for “Identifying reliable sources (medicine)” (WP:MEDRS) read: “It is usually best to use reviews and meta-analyses where possible.”

The reviews in question reflect the latest research (last 10 years) in the field, they are scholarly and peer-reviewed, and they are published in academic journals. Granateple (talk) 22:42, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Proposed merge[edit]

The result of this discussion was to merge Lactic acid bacteria to Lactobacillales. Chhandama (talk) 11:10, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

A merge with Lactobacilles would be a very good move. Iztwoz (talk) 20:54, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

I agree (talk) 01:50, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Yes, should have been merged into Lactobacilles. Chhandama (talk) 10:59, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Note: Lactobacillales are simply lactic acid bacteria Chhandama (talk) 11:10, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Tooth decay & Dental Caries[edit]

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:

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!
