"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, 

that whoever believes in Him will not perish, 

but have everlasting life."                                               —  John 3:16

 

If there is ANY doubt whatsoever that you will be in heaven, simply say this from the bottom of your heart:

“Father God, forgive my sins.  Jesus, come into my heart.  Make me the kind of person YOU want me to be.

THANK YOU for saving me TODAY.”   Where is Jesus now?   If you can say, “He’s in my heart”,

CONGRATULATIONS on becoming a child of God!  To begin your new life in Christ, we encourage you to

read your Bible every day, talk to God in prayer daily, regularly attend a church that preaches about Christ 

and His love, and tell others about this most important decision you’ve made.  Let us know, too, by clicking 

on the  CONTACT US  link, and it would be our sincere pleasure and honor to let you know of additional

resources to help you as you embark on this most exciting journey.  Place your complete trust in Christ — 

He will never let you down!

HEALTH POLL RESULTS

Poll results are listed in chronological order.

 POLL #1 TOPIC:  FLOSSING 

 

POLL RESULTS: 

We thank those who participated in our first internet poll: 

"How often do you floss your teeth?” (March-April 2007). 

 

The results were interesting: 

Of those who responded to our poll, 9% never floss; 18% floss at least two to six times per week; and 73% floss every day. 

This compares favorably to the U.S. national average — only 50.5% use an interdental cleaning agent such as dental floss on a daily basis, according to a Zogby International Poll (2003). 

 

Health Benefits 

A dentist in Nebraska and one in Florida stated that brushing only gets 60% of the tooth surface clean, whereas flossing takes care of the remaining 40%! 

Flossing helps remove plaque, debris and bacteria that brushing cannot remove. 

In addition, flossing polishes the surface of the teeth and helps control bad breath caused by bacteria. 

The overwhelming majority of dental experts agree that flossing the teeth is the most important factor in preventing gum disease. 

According to the Academy of General Dentistry, advanced gum disease affects over 75 percent of the U.S. population.  It is the leading cause of tooth loss in American adults, affecting up to 15 percent of the population. 

As the saying goes, “There is no substitution for flossing!” 

 

Consequences of not flossing 

In addition to preserving the health of your teeth, flossing may literally save your life.  A doctor of pathology at UCSF (specializing in the study of diseases) mentioned about a person who had to have a tooth extracted which caused an infection and resulting abscess.  The infection quickly spread to the person’s bloodstream, causing septic shock and within hours, he was gone.  The doctor said this person’s life might have been spared — had he diligently flossed his teeth daily. 

 

Start today! 

There are a wide range of dental floss products available, and your dentist can help recommend the one that is suitable for your needs, as well as demonstrate the proper way to floss the teeth. 

Why not make flossing a regular part of a healthy lifestyle — along with daily brushing, optimum diet, supplementation, plenty of pure water, rest, exercise and communing with our loving Heavenly Father God. 

 

Words to Live By 

“Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 

 — I Corinthians 6:19, 20 

 

 

Editor's P.S.:  

We spoke with a dentist in the San Francisco Bay Area and he offered some additional information on flossing we'd like to share with you:

 

TIP:  Floss first, BEFORE brushing your teeth.   This helps loosen food particles prior to brushing, for superior results in teeth cleaning.

 

Good illustration:  NOT flossing is like taking a shower without cleaning under the armpits — it's like missing an important area!    Another health advisor said not flossing is like not washing 33% of your body when showering.   Therefore, daily flossing is essential to clean areas of the teeth that are practically impossible to access with brushing alone.  

Remember that flossing is vital to help maintain your dental health — which is key to your overall health, too!
