Researchers in Israel have discovered evidence of human teeth 400000yearold teeth400,000 years old that have dental tartar on them.  The teeth were preserved in a cave that was sealed over 200,000 years ago.  In the dental tartar were traces of plants and smoke contaminants suggesting the diet and the environment the dwellers lived in was probably quite smoky due to the fires that were lit for cooking.  Interesting that tartar on our teeth will probably outlast us into the future.  For more information, here is the link to the story:     http://phys.org/news/2015-06-year-old-dental-tartar-earliest-evidence.html
