In a rare display of commonsense and humanity, America’s dentists have an important seasonal message for kids: knock yourselves out on the Halloween candy. It’s not going to kill you.In fact, the dentists point out, it’s better to let the kids gorge themselves sick on Halloween than to ration the candy out over the days and weeks ahead. Constantly snacking on candy is much worse for your teeth than one big binge.This was not the view of the Grand Matriarch in the days when I used to dress up in my pundit costume to shake the neighbors down. But those were also the days when kids weren’t allowed to go in swimming for two hours after eating to avoid cramps, plenty of sunshine was considered a healthy thing, and red meat and milk were the keys to good nutrition.The science was settled!
