I’m laughing so hard at this article about flossing I was reading this morning. It basically says that flossing might be great for your teeth or it might not. They truly have no idea. I guess studies to track whether it helps prevent gum disease don’t run long enough to determine if it prevents gum disease. So hows that for hard science. But here’s my favorite part:
A survey by the academy found that almost 15 percent of adults would rather clean a toilet than floss their teeth. Guess what? That would be me. I’m in that 15%. I HATE it and I totally admit…. I don’t floss. Also, that study reveals more than a 27 percent of U.S. adults admit they lie to their dentist about how often they floss their teeth. So if they are lying and their dentists can’t tell, is it really working? I’m going with no because it makes me feel better.
Now here’s the million dollar question. Am I alone in this? Do you floss? If so, how often? Do you think it helps? Do you think I’m gross because I don’t floss?
Peace out. I’m off to do anything but floss…
