Mused after watching first episode of Miracle Workers starring Steve Buscemi and Daniel Radcliffe on TBS. Buscemi plays God who decides to destroy the world while Radcliffe is intent on saving it. A comedy where if Radcliffe can make one prayer come true the world is saved. Two terrific actors with an entertaining premise.
Periodontal Disease and Cancer
A recent study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute links higher cancer rates to periodontitis. The study analyzed almost 7,500 older adults comparing periodontal disease over a period of 15 years.
Participants with severe periodontitis had a 24% higher risk of developing cancer and those with no teeth at baseline had a 28% higher risk compared with those with no or mild gum disease. The two cancers with a higher risk were colorectal and lung.
(Did You Know? My dentist recommends in addition to brushing at least twice a day, to floss at least once a day and gargle with Listerine.)
The study even accounted for those with a history of smoking since they have a higher risk of lung cancer. Also, no associations for higher risk were noted for breast, prostate or lymphoma cancers.

CoolSculpting is a technique to freeze unwanted fat from a variety of areas. With our “Dual Sculpting” (two machines) the time is halved and flanks or abdomen can often be done in under an hour. The most common areas are abdomen, flank/side, thighs, hips, arms, back, under buttock, bra line and under the chin. The fat cells are permanently removed. Best of all is that there is almost no downtime so you can resume your activities the same day! Call Joni who has 5 years’ experience to discuss your situation 513-793-5772.
