The Dental Floss Could possibly Extend your life by 5 Years

Fact  about dental floss, how does it help to keep your life Longer!?

Every 6-12 months, you visit the dentist for a cleaning -- and likely a lecture about the importance of flossing. But if you're like many dental patients, the advice travels in one ear and out the other -- much like, well, dental floss gliding between the spaces of your teeth.

"There is no instant gratification with flossing -- that's the problem," says Alla Wheeler, RDH, MPA, associate professor of the Dental Hygiene Program at the New York University School of Dentistry. "Patients don't think it does anything."

But flossing does about 40% of the work required to remove food residues, sticky bacteria, or plaque, from your teeth. Plaque generates acid, which can cause cavities, irritate the gums, and lead to gum disease. "Each tooth has five surfaces. If you don't floss, you are leaving at least two of the surfaces unclean," Wheeler explains. "Floss is the only thing that can really get into that space between the teeth and remove bacteria."

Daily Flossing Can Add 6.4 Years To Your Life

As the Baby Boom generation ages there is more and more concern about the cost of care for the future aged... and, in fact, aging in general. For a generation that swore they would never want to live to be more than 30 this generation is approaching and passing 50 all the while hoping for many more years. Thirty is a distant memory.

Partly to satisfy this concern for such a large part of our citizenry, there are a slew of books, seminars, and tapes about how to stay healthier and live longer. One of the most recent and most interesting is a book by Michael F. Roizen, MD. Dr. Roizen's book is called "RealAge", and the general concept is to calculate how old a person is actually (compared to averages and actuarial tables) based to a great degree upon choices he/she makes about lifestyle, eating, exercise, etc.

In particular, there is a section on dental health, and I quote, "These studies show that the presence of periodontal diseases, diseases most common in people with tooth loss, actually affects longevity. The best of these studies done at Emory University with the Centers for Disease Control, indicated that people with gingivitis and periodontitis have a mortality rate that is 23 percent to 46 percent higher than those who don't... why? They are linked to increased rates of cardiovascular disease and stroke, as well as to an increase in mortality from other causes, such as infections.

On flossing, the book states that, "Flossing your teeth daily can make your arteries younger. The probable reason: Flossing helps keep your immune system young... the same bacteria that cause periodontal disease also trigger an immune response, inflammation, that causes the arteries to swell. The swelling of the arterial walls results in a constriction of blood flow that can lead to a higher incidence of cardiovascular disease. Other studies have shown that periodontal disease leads to a higher white blood cell count, which is an indicator that the immune system is under increased stress.... Poor oral hygiene and particularly increased tooth loss are important indicators of your risk. The fewer teeth you have, the greater your risk of gum infections."

Incidentally, according to Dr. Roizen, men who have regular sex in a happy monogamous heterosexual relationship and who eat lots (not overeating) of pizza, marinara sauce, and spaghetti can add an additional 5 years to their lives... just floss after eating, and don't smoke after sex.

Other Experts

Longevity expert Dr Roger Henderson says, 'Flossing every day means not only could you still have a full set of teeth as a centenarian, but your dental hygiene may have helped you to get to such an age.'

I have blogged an article about 10 years ago saying that stop Smoking keep your younger, use dental floss 7 times a week make your life longer for 5 years.

Don’t challenge me for how to get those data, as there is difficulties to calculate by not doing flossing..

Well, there is over 1,000 types of bacteria in your mouth and Flossing will remove some of them and preventing them to go into your blood stream. Why not start to use dental floss.

Well, I carry a case of dental floss with me, I think Dental floss works better in cleaning the gap between teeth where by those food restudies locked up there. Use of too pick will have high chance to damages you gum, Dental floss will not.

I am 60 years ago and I have been using dental floss more than 30 years, I have not lost any one of my teeth…

And I have some tips for you. 

I have found a new Thai Silk dental floss which is BEST amongst all those I have been using Reach, Colgate, Johnson & Johnson, Oral B, Reach, Listerine, Glide…etc.

This is best as it is tough, thick enough to remove the things between my teeth and thin SMOOTH enough to slip into… I give this 100% perfect floss….

It also helps the farmers of Thailand to make their living better.

Future of Hong Kong

1. Globalization that driver all business going into severe competition.

2. All products go for Low cost and Super Good product quality or cannot survive.

3. Longer Life expectancy forces people retire later, lesser opportunity for younger generation for going up the ladder.

4. No Way to buy a house as paying debt seems become our destiny.

5. More people will lose the job as we are losing competitive power.

6. A Fresh graduation from University is now being paid the Salary of a Secondary School graduate

In the 60’s

7. There will be no land space for house, Country Park, or sooner cemetery will be converting into public housing.

8. Shanghai will replace HK and Tokyo as the Far East Financial Centre by 2024.

9. 40% of HK men is now having marriage with China Wife and this rate will grow, however, as a consequence of China One Family one Child policy, there is 118 Man Vs 100 women as the new borne baby, HK people is seriously going head to head competition with local Chinese Man…

10. Forget about 2017 Direct Election for Chief Executive of HK as it will not change HK or HK people life in any aspect. As whoever being elected will remain a puppet of The Chung Nam Hoi Administration.

11. Occupancy of Central Will prone be a Disaster. That will ruin the internal image, jeopardize the business of HK, create more hatred between Government officials and the certain people of HK.

What We should Do!?

Stay Calm and watch for opportunity.

Real estate price will soon drop in one day to reasonable level, still beyond the ability of the middle class people could possibly afford.

Keep sharping up ourselves, do whatever we can, explore all opportunity to make some money, Consolidation of Money, funding for small business.

Go for the new Business by internet media earlier.

Thinking of smaller real estate investment item in 3rd tier city in China to start with as it is still low…

Hong Kong MoonCakes

Mooncake is a Chinese bakery product traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The festival is for lunar worship and moon watching, when mooncakes are regarded as an indispensable delicacy.
Mooncakes are offered between friends or on family gatherings while celebrating the festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the four most important Chinese festivals. In fact, mid-autumn festival is 2nd important festival , after Chinese new year.
Surprisingly , Korean would celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival like HK and Taiwan,  and In Korea They will have holiday on 17-19 Sept, 19 Sept is the Mid Autumn festival and It’s a HK Public Holidays.
A rich thick filling usually made from lotus seed paste is surrounded by a thin (2–3 mm) crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs. Mooncakes are usually eaten in small wedges accompanied by Chinese tea.
The caloric content of a mooncake is approximately 1,000 calories (for a cake measuring 10 cm (3.9 in)), but energy content varies with filling and size. We cannot eat too much every time.
Price of Moon Cake common in HK is from HKD$140-HKD$300, of course there are more expensive one up to thousand Dollars. But comparing to those Chinese MoonCake that Sold at a few Thousand RMB (USD$600) or more, that is another case, This year the new Chinese State will ban the Sales or Mooncake as a bribery which commonly happened in the past ten years.
Maxim, Kee Wah, Wing Wah and Hang Heung is the most four Famous Brands the Maxim introduces low sugar filling, White lotus Seed. I am Fuddy-fuddy, I still can not appreciate those Ice-cold Moon-cake they’re made for Kids!
Lotus Seed is said to be one of the most mysterious Seed since early days of China, We had found one Lotus Seed that was 1,000 years ago and we can grow it by extraction from it DNA, this trigger the scientist and doctor to study Lotus seeds that may contain the secret of Life Rejuvenation.
So I hope after you have eaten the MoonCake, you could be the years young and more attractive.!

German Labor Mininstry has banned emailing out of office hours

Germany labor ministry has banned managers from calling or emailing staff out of hours except in emergencies. The ministry says the measure is intended to prevent staff from suffering undue stress by being constantly on call.

Daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported Friday that the ministry is following the lead of major German companies such as automaker Volkswagen and Deutsche Telekom.

The newspaper cited official guidelines stating that no staff should be penalized for turning off their cellphone or failing to pick up messages after working hours "to prevent self-exploitation."

It said managers were also being urged to refrain from calling staff while on leave but out-of-hours contact was permitted "in exceptional circumstances."

WOW! This is really a Developed Country practice. As in Asian, those customers is expecting you to reply his their email on 24 hours basis…. That is a really a pressure to our after-work life, no wonder some of our colleagues dropped dead on his computer!

Hope that Hong Kong would be learning from the civilized country, however somehow someone would standup and say, This will jeopardize the Hong Kong economy and reduce it competition power in the Regions!
