Damaged teeth can be regrown naturally using an Alzheimer’s drug, scientists discover

‘A way to naturally regrow damaged teeth has been discovered by scientists in a breakthrough that could significantly reduce the need for fillings. Researchers at King’s College London (KCL) found that a drug designed to treat Alzheimer’s disease was able to stimulate the tooth to create new dentine capable of filling in large cavities. Teeth can already cope with small areas of damage using the same process, but when the holes become too large a dentist must insert artificial cements or the tooth will be lost.

“Indeed when fillings fail or infection occurs, dentists have to remove and fill an area that is larger than what is affected, and after multiple treatments the tooth may eventually need to be extracted.

“As this new method encourages natural tooth repair, it could eliminate all of these issues, providing a more natural solution for patients”.’

Diet Soda and Weight Gain: It’s Not Your Imagination

These results, which the study authors call “striking,” add to the growing body of evidence that no- and low-calorie sweeteners may come with health concerns. Though scientists are still puzzling through the mechanisms by which diet soda seems to have the unintended consequence of weight gain, they have some ideas. Sugar-free sodas contain substances that sweeten up soda at 200-600 times the sweetness of sugar…

“Scientists last night claimed that the ballooning obesity crisis—which for decades has been blamed on people eating too much fat—may actually be due to diets packed with sugar and food containing refined grains, such as white bread and pasta…”

The Most Violent Era In America Was Before Europeans Arrived

“There’s a mythology about the Native Americans, that they were all peaceful and in harmony with nature—it’s easy to create narratives when there is no written record.”

“Writing in the journal American Antiquity, Washington State University archaeologist Tim Kohler and colleagues document how nearly 90 percent of human remains from that period had trauma from blows to either their heads or parts of their arms.”
