The fact that the teeth have tar-tar shows we shouldn't be eating whatever they find hidden inside.

"plant foods and they processed these foods,"

"grass seeds, tubers that may have been related to water lilies, and at least in a location in present-day Iraq, the foods had been cooked."

Cooking pots show these foods: "corn, sweet potato, beans [...]cassava"

Seems starches led to plaque and tar-tar.
