Biological Dental Health – A Look Back at 2012

Happy New Year to all! We hope yours is off to a fantastic start and that 2013 brings you joy, peace, health and all good things.

Once again, it’s time to take a look back at the year just past, our fourth full year of blogging.

And once again, our readership nearly doubled. Thank you to our regular readers and subscribers for following us, commenting on and sharing our posts, and introducing our blog to others! We are truly grateful.

Without further ado, our yearly snapshot of the life of this blog, starting with
the first sentence from the first post of each month:

  • January: Did you hear the one about the “new” study finding “that vegetarians are much more likely to suffer from tooth decay, lower (more acidic) salivary pH levels, and lower stimulated saliva flow than control subjects that were matched by sex and age”?
  • February: Though we don’t agree with everything in the article below – recently distributed by the “Orthomolecular Medicine News Service” – it’s a good read that that offers some insight to the pressures that pharmacists (and others) are under to perpetuate medicine that, at best, helps “manage” illness and at worst generates more illness.
  • March: Want to damage your teeth?
  • April: But gum disease can cause more than just aesthetic problems.
  • May: Remember the post about why you really need to clean your retainers?
  • June: “High fructose corn syrup” (HFCS) it was, is and shall remain.
  • July: It seems that some people, when they start learning the truth about the risks of amalgam fillings, will instantly ascribe all of their symptoms to the presence of mercury in their mouths.
  • August: “I’m not a dentist.”
  • September: Monday morning pop quiz!
  • October: Teeth lodged in ears?
  • November: Some points bear repeating: The main purpose of toothpaste is to act as an abrasive, making it easier to break up the microbial colonies that form “plaque.”
  • December: Remember when Jessica Simpson made those comments about never brushing her teeth?
