Posted Aug 08 2009 1:42pm
Most people know Whoopi Goldberg well for her many movies and presence on the TV show The View. Recently on the View, Whoopi relates her recent dental experiences with gum disease and losing teeth.
Whoopi says wisely “If you’re not taking care of your teeth you’re not taking care of your whole body—and it’s killing you!” Gum disease killing us! According to another recent article in Readers Digest we are twice as likely to die of a heart attack, and 3 times to die of a stroke. There is also an increased incidence and severity of pneumonia and diabetes!
We suggest you watch Whoopi’s video and listen well!
