FOUR schools in Mallorca will take part in a pioneering project titled ‘Stick your tongue out,’ aimed at studying organisms in the human mouth.

More than 2,000 secondary students around the country will donate a sample of their saliva, which scientists will use to find out whether the variety of bacteria and other organisms in the human mouths is conditioned by environment or lifestyle.
