Having to restrain the deep-seeded urge to devour the piles of Halloween candy you've collected with no looking back? Don't suppress those feelings: Boston-based dentist, Anna Berik, says to go for it!

In an interview with Time Magazine this week, Berik suggested that while eating candy by the pound obviously isn't good for your overall health, if you're going to do it anyways it's actually better for your teeth to eat it all at once vs. over an extended period of time. She explained that cavities form by feeding bacteria on your teeth for an extended period of time, so eating your candy all at once and then brushing your teeth after would be "less cavity-causing than spreading that candy out over the next three months and having sugar in your mouth day after day after day".

Another dentist in Madison, Wisconsin, Chris Kammer, agrees with Berik and has even kickstarted his own Halloween candy buyback program across the country to help prevent kids from consuming too much candy over an extended period of time. 

Don't be a candy hoarder - stuff your face now and enter into that sweet, sweet sugar coma you've been daydreaming about. The dentist said so!
