What causes food to decay?
Food will decay if bacteria or fungi is on the food because fungi and bacteria are living organisms so they eat at the flesh of the food which cause the fungi to spread or cause the bacteria to multiply which eventually will cause the food to eventually be 100% decomposed.

- Not brushing your teeth - Eating so much sweets and chocolate or sugary foods - Consuming too many acidy foods such as vinegar - Smoking
not brushing your teeth and eating too much sweets. tooth decay is very popular throughout the world!!!
Answer . Plaque made up of a variety of anaerobic bacteria.. Real Answer . Nutrient deficiency combined with imbalanced blood sugar. .
Is the process by which the atomic nucleus becomes slightly smaller, as a result of the emission of particles, electromagnetic radiation, or both.. ELECTROMAGNETIC FORCE is the right answer
All Sodas can over a long period of time. I would say that coke would cause faster decay than pepsi.
It is said that all types of sugar can cause tooth decay. The most expected sugars to give tooth decay are sucrose, glucose, fructose, and maltose. Bacteria use the energy in the sugar and then make acids which attack teeth and tooth enamel. This then causes tooth decay, which is also known as denta…l caries. Bacteria in also found in dental plaque and that stick to our teeth, also causing tooth decay. The likeliness of getting dental caries and making cavities expand, increases each time we eat sugary foods. Some people get tooth decay worse than others. This is because:Ã The strength on some people tooth enamel is stronger than others.Ã Some people eat less sugary foods than others generally.Ã Some people look after their teeth better than others so are less vulnerable to get tooth decay.If we have a large amount of sugary foods and drinks in our diet, our mouth will be acidic and will take about 20-30 minutes to return to its normal pH level.

If you mean the ones in your mouth then this is your answer. Food gets caught between your teeth and the microorganisms feed on this. because they are so small the food passes through very quickly, undergoing a chemical change and becoming an acid. The acid then 'eats' at the teeth causing more chem…ical reactions causing the blackening and this is how we get the decay. ( Full Answer )
Yes, sugar is one of the leading causes of tooth decay. It is veryimportant to brush your teeth after every meal to avoid toothdecay.
Bacteria are a leading cause that makes food decay. These manybacteria grow and thrive in great amounts of heat causing your foodto decay at a quick rate.
sugary food. junk food. sticky food. check out the article in related links. Sugary and high in caffeine drinks, for instance, soda(coca cola) --->+acidic ones
Bacterial activity. Any un-preserved or uncooked foods are vulnerable to food decay. Bacteria find the food, release enzymes on to the food and then digest the enzymes.taking part of the food away. Remember bacteria need certain living conditions. . Moisture . Non acidic or alkali conditio…ns . Food . Oxygen So methods live salting and sugaring can absorb moisture, killing bacteria. Along with freezing. Pickling can create acidic and alkali conditions, killing bacteria. I am a year 8 who is putting his biological skills to test.

\nFood decays and rots due to the growth of organisms that develop over time. These organisms feed on the food item, causing it to decay and become unfit for human consumption.
decay is caused when detritvores break up dead animals or plants and increase the surface area. microorgasims then complete the process of decay.
Its when Microbes(bacteria and fungi) grow on food causing it to decay and rot.They will multiply while on the food.
Microbes grow on and in food causing it to decay or rot. Microbes will increase in numbers as they destroy the food. They are almost everywhere and on almost everything you can think of. They are in the air, the water, the soil, your food, your clothes, and on your hands. Basically, all the methods …of foods preservation or eliminate or decayby either slowing down the growth of the microbes or eliminating the microbes. ( Full Answer )
Decay starts almost immediately upon harvesting. Changes within the food are almost imperceptible at first, but they start as soon as the food is separated from its life source.
The chemical reaction that takes place in the decaying of food isknown as fermentation. Fermentation converts sugars into acids,gases or alcohol.
When you eat food it builds up and you dont brush u will get tooth decay
few ways 1 - Freeze food, this slows reactions taking place, it will not completely stop the decaying process, also know as freezer burn. 2 - Heat food - this causes enzymes to become denatured and stop them decaying food 3 - vacuum pack - this deprives decomposers of oxygen so that they cant live 4… - tinning food - keeps food dry, heated and airtight so no oxgen ( Full Answer )
It slows the reaction rate down, slowing the decay, and slowing the dispersion from infection sites through the foodstuff.
Each molecule of water is polarized, which means that one side is positively charged and the other side is negatively charged. Because of this, when water runs over a substance, the water molecules catch on to the other molecules and pull them into the water (decay), or stick them to each molecule (…as in a solution). ( Full Answer )
Yes. Tooth Decay will start as too much Bacteria builds up in a tooth. Bacteria build ups are caused by not taking proper cleaning routines with your teeth
Well, it's like the process of mummification. Once the body has died, the sells decay as well, making gases that build up in the body. Creating further decaying of the flesh, but not the bones. BUT, the extreme flashes of hot and cold weather prevents these conditions. Thus a mummy/or a non decayed …body will remain there until somthing has caused further damage to the corpse. ( Full Answer )
fungi can not cause decay but it would be the other way around. worms and other insects will also speed up the decaying process then fungi amd other decomposers such as fungi break it down
Something eating through the enamel on your teeth. Such as... Acid. Acid will wear away at your tooth enamel and get inside and the bacteria from your mouth will get into the interior of your teeth and eat away at the center of your tooth called the pulp.
Tooth decay is not caused by a microbe. Yet, the more sugar we eat the more chance of our teeth rotting.
An unstable nucleus, which can be caused by: . excess of neutrons . shortage of neutrons . metastable excited state of nucleus
Tooth decay, or dental caries is not caused by the lack of any particular vitamins or nutrients. Unlike diseases such as scurvy, which can be prevented by intake of vitamin C; or night-blindness, which can be prevented by vitamin A intake; dental caries prevention is not diet controllable. However a…voiding sticky sweets and starches especially in children may help reduce the chances of caries . ( Full Answer )
The most uniform and universal cause for decay of Cultural property is Gravity. Other main causes of decay are due to Natural agents and Man-made agents. Natural agents include natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, hurricanes, floods, tsunamis, lightening, etc. Through …out human history, We have seen spectacular destructive effect on cultural property due to natural disaster. The damage caused by natural disaster are substantial and irreversible. Climatic factors are also natural agents which result in decay of Cultural properties. Climatic factors like rain, wind, sunlight, radiation (especially short wave radiation) cause decay. In climatic factors, sunlight for instance, heats the surface of the building which causes expansion and contraction resulting in cracks. In case of rains, the humidity enhances vegetation growth and moss growth of building surfaces. In case of heavy rains it may wash away the building material. If rain water not drained properly can accumulate and penetrate in the building which will result i further decay of the building. These environmental elements make up for the macro climate of any region; when coupled with local conditions of the region (micro-climate) like mountains, valleys, altitude, proximity to water bodies also add to the causes of decay. Ground water table if high can cause decay as it dampen the foundation, due to its rise because of the capillary action. Also this ground water contains salts, chlorides and sulphites, which can chemically affect the building. Biological growth and botanical growth causes are natural agents for decay. Animals like monkeys and cattle can cause damage. Bats can also cause damage to the cultural property as they give off harmful odour and their urine and excreta stains the surfaces due to chemical reaction. Birds use old structures as their nesting place and bring seeds with them, which when thrown away or when excreted out will result in vegetation growth. Pigeons are an apt example of such a case. Entomological causes of decay due to insects, termites, moths, beetles, ants are also the natural agents. Human factors or man-made agents causes the maximum decay. Human causes are numerous and in most cases they are by-products of industrial activity in quest for wealth. Man-made agents like war, new development, pollution are all causes of decay. Incongruous or insensitive additions and alterations may deface and damage the building structurally as well as aesthetically. Pollution can cause acid rains due to emission of gasses in atmosphere. It also causes dust deposition on the building surface which results in blackening of the building surfaces. Fire is a major cause of damage, sometimes by accident and sometimes due to incidence like arson. Neglect and ignorance, lack of maintenance, theft and vandalism are human factors of or man-made agents for decay of cultural properties. Theft can happen in case of valuables and sculptures, etc. Vandalism can cause anything with the building from graffiti to destruction. It can exhibit iconoclastic behavior of the people. Heavy flow of people (tourist) if not managed properly can cause damage to building or lead to vandalism. Also, if Tourism is not managed properly can lead to over-crowding, stamped, littering of places, commercialization, etc. The causes of decay are also classified as Extrinsic (external agents leading to decay) and Intrinsic (internal agents inherent to the building).

All decay is bacterial (except when the term is used metaphorically, as in social decay).
Medications do not typically 'cause' dental decay, however, some medications can cause a decrease in salivary production. Saliva is important in neutralizing acids that cause decay. Therefore, some medications can contribute to the incidence of tooth decay.
Warm and moist would rot food most quickly. Most enzymes work best at warm temperatures and so do spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms.
It is a collection of chemical changes. Some are caused by livingorganisms such as bacteria.
simple; caffeine, nicotine and candy. however, you can avoid it but reduce your intake for caffeine and nicotine. make sure you had dessert after eat candy and don't forget to brush your teeth. also, meet your dentist regularly.
The term for an organism that causes decay is decomposers, such as bacteria and fungi. they chemically break down organic matter for food. the decay caused by the decomposers is part of a process that produces detritus, small pieces of dead and decaying plant/animal remains.
Of course. Imagine yourself eating a piece of stale food or something. Cats shouldn't - by rights - eat decying food unless they are starving. Dry food goes stale quickly - not just in the bowl (be sure to change the food every day) but in the packaging, too. Bacteria can grow and multiply in the ki…bble which can - and has - cause serious health issues to cats. If it's a well fed and healthy cat, it should turn it's nose up at the decaying and stale food. Be sure that your cat gets fresh food; don't risk your cat getting ill! I had just bought some dry food last week and I lost my older cat of 19 a few days after I had opened the food and I am now noticing my other cat who is 5 doing the same thing as my 19 yr old did before he died. I have since stopped giving him the food and have already noticed a improvement in his health. ( Full Answer )
Plaque is various types of bacteria in large quantities. These bacteria metabolize (eat) carbohydrates (sugars) that are in the mouth. The bacteria then produce acids which erode the enamel of the teeth, resulting in tooth decay.
Alpha and beta decay cause a change in the number of protons and nuetrons in an atom. In other words they both cause a change in the atom itself. Alpha decay causes the loss of 2 protons and 2 neutrons, while beta decay causes the addition of a single proton to the nucleus.
They don't cause tooth decay, the way some food do, but any acidic food; lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit, et.al, can eat away at the enamel, leading to dental difficulties.
Most of the times, it is the organism itself that decay... But think of the issue over in the Rockies right now... The beetles are decaying the trees... I don't remember the name, but that is one of them.
It doesn't necessarily smell bad. To a fly, it smells great! To most animals, humans included, it smells bad because it would make us very ill if we ate it. Therefore, nature has provided us with the survival instinct of finding it very unpleasant so that we avoid eating it. Answer 2 Bad smeell i…ndicates decomposition by bacteria and fungi which releases gases like H 2 S ( Full Answer )
Because uranium is a radioactive unstable element; the stability of the nucleus depends on the proportion between protons and neutrons.
Cooking food kills any bacteria already on the food (assuming it isheated sufficiently). If there is no bacteria on the food it takeslonger to decay. If you do not finish the food you must refridgerate it to continueto stop spoiling because the cold also slows down the process.
Food decay is very important. For example, You are completely addicted to bananas. Without bananas you think that your life would end. There is one problem- food decay stopped for some strange and random reason. Outside your house there is a huge pile of banana peels. The neighbours are begi…nning to complain, because they want you to use the accepted system of removal of peelings, bones, etc... You choose not to use this system because you are too busy eating bananas, painting bananas, drinking banana smoothies and cooking with bananas. Eventually, your garden gets full of banana peels. Then they start coming into your house. After 5 days of banana peels filling garden filling house, you choke on banana peels. See what I mean? Also, mold looks really cool! ( Full Answer )
If it is fizzy or a beer it will give a tooth decay.(if you drink too much)
its the hyperinflation of two atoms connecting to form a decayed molecule. This process is called geremonial condenation. Hope this helps!
Unstable configurations of protons and neutrons in the nucleus causes most of it. A relatively rare cause is when in very massive atoms the innermost shell of electrons (the K shell) is compressed and distorted so that its probability cloud significantly overlaps the nucleus, permitting electrons to… sometimes be captured by protons forming neutrons; this is a special form of beta decay called K capture . ( Full Answer )
you can prevent it if you do not leave it out in open air for a long time
Bacteria metabolize simple carbohydrates (sugars) and produce acids. Over time the acid corrodes the enamel of the tooth resulting in tooth decay.
By freezing it, salting it, drying it, pickling it, irradiating it, canning it and eating it now.
