Are canker sores a neolithic illness?

Ran across this statement on Wikipedia about them:

Aphthous stomatitis occurs worldwide, but is more common in developed countries.

What do you all think? Theories on cause (and prevention, treatment, etc)?

I've had maybe 1-2 canker sores since going paleo a few years ago. I used to get them so often before that I had an oral steroid paste (triamcinolone acetonide) around all the time. It's an inflammatory process, probably related to nutrition.

I still seem to get them if I accidentally bite the inside of my mouth too hard. I would assume oral bacteria play a role, in which case people living in "dirty" conditions probably have better bacterial profile than someone living in a developed area. Not sure if there's any truth to this, just speculation.
