1001 Uses For Dental Floss #3 – Longer Life With Floss

1001 Uses For Dental Floss #3 – Longer Life with Floss
Hidden among his usually more faddish recommendations, Dr. Oz says something that seemed indisputable: flossing daily can add to your life expectancy (6.4 years, it seems) by reducing complications of inflammation, such as heart disease and complications during pregnancy. This applies even more so for diabetics. This statement about a direct link was later retracted because of criticism from the American Heart and Stroke Association and the American Dental Association. Nonetheless, using dental floss regularly fits well in a basket with other good preventive health practices, such as eating well, regular exercise, and not smoking: individuals practicing these good habits tend to live longer, healthier lives.
And  you get to keep your teeth! Live longer and better. Floss every day, but also do all the other good stuff. If you don’t know how to floss, ask your dentist or dental hygienist.
