If you’re sitting in your sister’s basement, playing Xbox, find yourself fearful of sunlight, and wonder why the girls have stopped coming around–this toothpaste, along with everything I’ve aforementioned, is probably why. unfortunately, this toothpaste actually exists. I mean, it could be a good excuse if someone tells you that your breath smells bad. all you have to say is that the fault rests with your toothpaste.
But if you plan on having friends, or anyone really, within 10 feet of you — for god’s sake please don’t think this is an acceptable idea. if you decide to be the asshole that buys it, it’s available at mcphee.com for $4.50 a tube. Personally, I think it would make a really good prank. (Squeeze out the person’s regular minty toothpaste, and pour in the bacon flavored one.)
Know someone whose trying to lose weight? are you trying to lose weight? it could also be beneficial to our obese friends who can’t seem to lay off the bacon. Try brushing your teeth with bacon flavored toothpaste. That way, you’re cutting your calories and still getting your nasty fix, ya sicko. Or you could just try that new lipstick that helps you lose weight — the glue stick. (Please, don’t actually take these suggestions.)
If you do purchase it, please do not eat the toothpaste, fry the toothpaste, or use it as a condiment. In fact, don’t use it period, unless you like the idea of being a 60-year-old virgin whose only friend is your cat. The toothpaste comes in a variety of flavors, including pickle, bacon, and cupcake. #wannaknowwhyyourefat?
There are lots of myths about health care these days. With the recent passing of the new health care law commonly known as Obamacare, rumors and myths abound. People who haven’t been able to afford insurance worry about being fined for not having coverage. Others who have been denied coverage in the past wonder if they’ll now be able to get the insurance they need. Nearly everyone is nervous about the cost of health coverage premiums going through the roof. I’d like to address some of the more prevalent myths that many people have today concerning this topic.
People with pre-existing conditions can’t get health insurance
Some people who have been denied coverage by major medical companies might believe this one. They desperately need health coverage but may have been turned down again and again. Believe it or not, there are companies out there that NEVER turn people down. Some might be asking “How can I find one?” The answer is through a health insurance broker. They deal with multiple companies including those that accept everyone. Pre-existing conditions don’t have to prevent you from getting the coverage you need for you and your family.
Health Care isn’t affordable
The cost of health insurance has risen dramatically over recent years. Some people have chosen to play Russian Roulette hoping to avoid major medical bills while saving on monthly premiums. The problem is that people don’t get enough options from their employers or just don’t shop around. Each individual has to decide the value of health coverage for themselves, their family, and what they can actually afford. A health care broker deals with dozens of plans and can usually find one within your price range that offers the protection you need.
Premiums always go up
Some people think that even if they can afford health insurance now, eventually their rates will go up and they won’t be able to afford coverage in the future. This may come as a shock, but there are companies out there that NEVER raise their rates. How can you find such a company? Once again the answer is a health insurance broker. Most companies won’t promise to keep your rates the same, but there are a few who keep their rates low and consistent. How? They are limited benefit plans that allow the insurer to know their cost limits so they don’t have to raise their rates every few years.
With the right information people can see through today’s myths and make intelligent decisions concerning their health care needs. If you have a pre-existing condition you don’t have to live without health insurance. Although they may have limited benefits, there are plans out there that are affordable. Lastly, you can have peace of mind that the plan you choose won’t raise its rate and leave you without coverage. A health coverage broker can help you find the plan that is best for you and your family.
The X Factor smile is something that I’m sure we would all welcome with open arms. Remember Cheryl Cole’s teeth before she had them done and now Tulisa has followed in her footsteps.
The latest research from Mintel has indicates that Britain’s biggest oral care concern is having white teeth.
Unfortunately, a set of pearly whites doesn’t always mean that teeth are health and looked after and is certainl no replacement for a good oral hygiene regime.
Effective as it may be, professional tooth whitening can be a costly process and needs regular maintenance in order to keep the desired effect. Oral hygiene specialist Molar ltd has put together a practical six point plan to help you maintain the natural whiteness of your teeth and at a fraction of the price of professional treatments.
1. Avoid smoking. The nicotine and tar content in cigarettes can cause teeth to discolour. Tobacco staining can range from a yellowish tint to really unsightly dark brown depending upon how many cigarettes are smoked. Tobacco staining on the teeth can be seen within days of starting smoking in some cases. Smoking can also lead to a greater amount of bacterial plaque being produced that can lead to other dental problems such as halitosis and gum disease. The best way to avoid this is to stop smoking!
2. Avoid drinking excess amounts of red wine/coffee/coloured fruit juices/tea/blue veined cheeses as they can leave superficial stains on the surface of teeth leading to discolouration, so consume them in moderation.
3. The best way to maintain natural tooth whiteness is to make regular visits to your dentist or oral hygienist. They will be able to assess the severity of any stains and suggest an appropriate course of action to help keep your teeth clean and white.
4. Regular brushing will help to remove any superficial stains from the surface of your teeth and maintain their natural colour. Brush teeth twice a day (morning and night) using a whitening fluoride toothpaste for the recommended time of 2 minutes.
5. Given that most dental disease and the build up of plaque and tartar (calculus) starts in between the teeth, regular interdental cleaning should form an essential part of a normal oral hygiene routine. Not cleaning interdentally can leave as much as 40% of your tooth surfaces untouched and uncleaned. Use dental floss daily or a TePe Interdental brush made in a range of eight colour coded sizes so that they can be tailored to the size of each space. using the correct sized brush for the space is important and ideally you should be guided by your dental professional. The general principle is that no brush should be forced into the space, but should be eased gently into the site and moved backwards and forwards once or twice and then rinsed under the tap before being used again.
6. Take an oral hygiene supplement such as Proden PlaqueOff daily to help reduce plaque and tartar (calculus) deposits, thus helping to maintain the natural colour of the teeth. This revolutionary supplement contains a specially selected seaweed from Norway (Ascophyllum nodosum) that has been proven to reduce plaque and tartar in humans by up to 87 per cent in a two month trial period.

Health care – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease , illness, injury, and other physical and
Everyone knows the cost of health care is rising every year with no end in site. Many families are burdened with premiums that are eating up a large portion of their budget. Those with health insurance plans through work are seeing their out of pocket costs grow. Some employees are even paying more for benefits at work then they would on their own.
A RAND Corp study, released in September of 2011, examined the health care an the average American family’s budget from 1999 to 2009. While the average family saw a 30% increase in their income, much of that was wiped out by greater gains in the cost of medical care. Inflation and higher taxes further decimated the gains.
They found that monthly premiums for health insurance grew by 128% over the decade studied. This is well beyond the rate of inflation. Prices on all goods tend to go up over time due to the devaluation of currency called inflation. But when a price for a good goes up faster then inflation, it becomes relatively more expensive then other goods in the economy. This is precisely what is happening with health care. When people are forced to spend relatively more on a good, they feel they are taking a step backward in terms of the living standard.
Making matters worse, many people who receive their health benefits through their employer are seeing lower wage gains. An employer has to take the total cost of an employee into account, and that includes what the employer spends on health benefits. When health care costs increase for the employer, they have actually increased the amount they spend per employee, only it doesn’t feel that way to the worker. The worker is indeed getting a raise, it is just going directly to their health care costs. As health care costs for employers continue to rise, it will put downward pressure on wages.
Health care costs are going up for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, patients now have access to cutting edge – and expensive – medical procedures that were not available before. While these procedures extend people’s lives and well being, they are very expensive and have to be paid for. Additionally, with few patients paying the direct cost of medical care, rather paying their insurance company, the market for medical care becomes distorted.
Another reason for the recent surge in health care costs is the recent Affordable Care Act. One of the new requirements is that employer plans now cover children up to the age of 26. While that may help provide insurance to young adults, it comes at a cost. A survey by the Kaiser Family foundation found that the cost for premiums on employer heath insurance plans increased by 9% in 2010. The increase in premiums has put even more downward pressure on wages during the weak economy.
Many employers are now putting some, if not all, of the cost of health care on to their employees. Many workers are now paying part of the monthly premium and often a large deductible as part of their plan. Often times, if they are young and have no pre-existing conditions, they can purchase private health insurance at a lower price then they are paying for their work plan.
There is no end in sight to rising health care costs. Medical advances will continue, the American population is aging, and reforms in Washington do not seem likely to help reduce the cost of health care.
