The teeth confirm it

A lot of balderdash has been written about Adolf Hitler supposedly living on but that has now been well and truly scotched by a new forensic analysis of his teeth, a set of choppers that were eroded and corroded by his love of sweet things.

The European Journal of Internal Medicine has published a paper which takes the few remaining gnashers of Hitler – lent by the Russian secret services – and rules that the “conspicuous and unusual prostheses and bridgework” matches the dental records obtained from his personal dentist.
