The eating habits of the 111 monozygotic and 67 like-sexed dizygotic twins were compared with respect to cariogenic foods. The food habits were recorded using a seven-day dietary history with the weekly frequency of the cariogenic foods examined. The biometrical analysis showed that the eating habits of the monozygotic pairs were more similar than that of the dizygotic twin pairs. The differences were statistically significant. Based on these findings, it seems that genetic factors play a role in the development of the food habits.
