And If That Doesn't Work, Try Filing Off The Stains

Piling on Tuesday's stereotype-exploitation post, we have this:

The BBC issues an on-air apology for a segment on Smart Spenders in which the host recommended rubbing lemon rinds on one's teeth as an alternative to expensive whitening treatments. The British Dental Health Foundation had informed the network that lemons, in fact, are harmful to tooth enamel.

Of course acid is bad for your - wait a minute. There's a British Dental Health Foundation?
