High consumption of vegetables have been demonstrated to Paleoamerican population of Lagoa Santa, based on the high prevalence of dental caries and the presence of starch grains in local lithic material. In view of these evidences, this project aims to understand the spatial distribution of vegetable seeds and fruits at the site Lapa do Santo - MG. The richness and diversity of this rec...
This project aims to investigate the cariogenic potential of plants found in archaeological sites in the region of Lagoa Santa - MG. It consists in collecting the selected plants in the area, involving 30 volunteers for the consumption of such plants, and calculating Stephan curves, which is the pH in the plaque for a period of one hour after food consumption. The hypothesis investigate...
This project aims to understand the diet differences between men and women in riverine communities of the Sustainable Development Reserve Mamirauá - Amazonas. The project involves analyses of semi-structured diet interviews, in addition to the data processing using the Nutritionist Pro program. The hypothesis investigated in this work is that women have a more cariogenic diet than men (...
