5 ways to preserve your teeth as you age
CNN
For all intents and purposes, we really get only one shot to take care of our teeth. The good news is, science and research have taken a front seat in dental education, making today's dentist savvy on "prevention" dentistry rather than the "drill, fill and bill" mentality of decades ago. Things like adhesive dentistry, recalcification and dental implants have given dentists more options. But for many patients, it's a lot of information to process. Here are five ways you can ensure that you hang on to your teeth as you age.

Research recently published in Neural Regeneration Research is especially exciting because it exhibits, yet again, the mouth-body connection.

How 'good cholesterol' stops inflammation
ScienceDaily
High cholesterol levels are seen as a cause of dangerous deposits in the bloodstream, which lead to hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis). As a consequence, thrombosis, strokes, and heart attacks can develop, which are among the leading causes of death in Western society. Low-density lipoprotein is commonly referred to as the "bad cholesterol," because it promotes atherosclerosis. In contrast, the "good cholesterol," high-density lipoprotein, helps transport excess cholesterol out of the bloodstream and can counteract an inflammatory reaction in damaged vessel walls.
