Statistical association of dietary components with Simonsiella species residing in normal human mouths.

By D A Gregory, D A Kuhn, K R Daly and K Flygenring


Members of the genus Simonsiella, aerobic, multicellular filamentous gliding bacteria, were detected in swabbings from the palates of 32% of 212 human subjects free of gross oral pathologies. Nutritional evaluations for 142 of the subjects showed a significantly greater daily intake among 53 Simonsiella carriers for 13 dietary variables, including four fat components, but there was no significantly greater daily intake for any of the carbohydrate components. Overall, there was a general excess dietary intake by Simonsiella carriers. The mean dietary intake of the carriers was numerically greater than that of the noncarriers for 70 of 74 dietary variables
