How to Get Your Teeth White

I know that you have read a lot about how you to get your teeth white. But most of them in the end says that you should spend a lot of money. Below I have found some advice how to keep teeth clean.



1. First you will need to check what you are eating and drinking. Coffee, smooking and red wine are the most thing that dirt on our teeth. So if you are smooking you need to stop smoking to get your teeth white again.



2. Try purchasing a new toothbrush. One that works very well, I have choosen the sonic toothbrush.



3. Buy special toothpaste that will help to whiten your teeth. There are dozens of toothpaste on the market that claim to whiten and brighten you smile. But the best thing to do is to talk with your dentist about this.



4. Don't forget to floss. You may not think so but flossing really does play an important role in keeping your teeth white and healthy. A large majority of dental problems are caused by the lack of flossing.



5. Visit your dentist constantly.

Scientists Create Breast Tumor Stem Cells


U.S. scientists say they've succeeded in growing breast cancer stem cells from normal tissue.

Since it is suspected that these types of cells give rise to cancer's spread, isolating them could prove invaluable in the fight against the disease, experts say.

"There has not been any publication to my knowledge that has demonstrated a way to isolate these cells from human patients and expand them, meaning grow them in Petri dishes," noted study lead author Dr. Tan Ince, an "independent signaling investigator" at Brigham and Women's Hospital and an instructor at Harvard Medical School, both in Boston.

Doctor's advice may boost car seat use


While a doctor's advice can encourage people to use car seats for children younger than four, there is less data on the effectiveness of counseling on motor vehicle restraint use for older kids and adults, according to a new study.

And there's no evidence that doctors can help prevent alcohol-related car crashes by warning patients about the risks of drunk driving, the study team found.

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading killer of people between 3 and 33 years of age in the US, the researchers note in their study, which was commissioned by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).

In 1996, the USPSTF issued a recommendation urging primary care doctors to counsel their patients about using seatbelts, booster seats and car seats to help prevent car crash injuries.

In order to ensure widespread and appropriate use of motor vehicle restraints by adults and children, the USPSTF concludes, a multi-pronged approach including legislation, counseling, community-based efforts, and enforcement is necessary.
