I am doing an Advanced levl course in the UK and i wil be doing a project to 
study how toothpaste affects the bacteria in the mouth. i have already found 
that Streptococcus mutans is that main cause of decay but we can't get that to 
experiment on. the only bacteria i am told that is suitable for class work that 
we have is E.Coli and Streptococcus lactis. are any of theses similar enough to 
Streptococcus mutans to get a fair reading?
