Simple Easy Way to Extend Your Life by 6.4 Years

David Wolfe interviews Dr. Mark Merriman, M.D. who says the secret to extending your healthy life  is not sexy but it’s insane to not do it.  Only 18 percent of the population flosses and flossing is more important that brushing!!  Over 60% of Dentist say flossing is better than brushing.  Flossing gets rid of bacteria.  Every time you brush you get a measurable increase of bacteria in your blood stream but flossing lowers the severity of gingivitis.

Scientific studies showed that gingivitis was one of the biggest indicator of problems.  Those folks had two times as many heart attacks, huge increase in diabetes, and a huge increase in strokes.    If you floss and it causes bleeding then you know that flossing is getting rid of necrotic tissue and it is replaced with normal healthy tissue.   The more you floss the better it is.  Bacteria loves simple sugar and hids in the pockets of the teeth, places where toothbrushes can’t reach.  Flossing is the ONLY way to remove it. 

A scary stastic – If you are 50 years old and have gingivitis then you are 2.7 times more likely to die of a sudden death, and you are 3 times more likely to die a cardiac death!  Get that floss out!!  Burts Bees and Toms.

Also, it’s important to use the right toothpaste.  Most commonly used toothpastes are poisonous to us, in fact they say if you swallow too much you need to call the Poison Control Center.  Remember that one of the quickest ways to get medications or anything into your body is to place it under your tongue and then the bloodstream gets it quickly. As you brush with the toxic toothpastes of course that sits in your mouth and under your tongue.  Try to reduce the amount of toxins you actually put into YOUR MOUTH!
