article imageDentist wants to buy back children's Halloween candy

By Kevin Fitzgerald     Oct 25, 2011 in Health
A dentist in Ohio has formulated a clever plan to buy back candy from trick-or-treaters in an effort to curb poor dental health.
Dentist Craig Allen, who is based in the city of Mansfield, has offered to buy back candy between October 31 and November 4, according to Fox News. He will pay a rate of $1 per pound with a five-pound limit per child and is willing to pay up to $1,000 in total for the program. He'll also throw in a new toothbrush as an added perk.
UPI reports that another incentive to the program is that all children who sell their candy will be entered into a drawing for 2 children's bicycles.
Callen says that doing away with extra sweets is a good boost toward proper dental hygiene. He also says that he wants to combat the problems of obesity and hyperactivity in children which can be caused by consuming excessive sweets.
