SOT Haueter

AUTHORITIES ARE POURING OVER A FLIGHT SIMULATOR CONFISCATED FROM THE FLIGHT CAPTAIN'S HOME AND TWO OF HIS LAPTOP COMPUTERS.

THE PURPOSE-- TO PULL TOXINS OUT OF THE BODY. Return to index of stories...


GARGLE WITH OIL-VO-WIPE


HERE'S WHAT USERS DO.

THEY TAKE A SCOOP-FULL OF COCONUT OIL OR SESAME OIL AND SWISH IT AROUND IN THEIR MOUTH FOR 10 TO 20 MINUTES.

ACCORDING TO A HANDFUL OF PUBLISHED CLINICAL TRIALS, OIL PULLING IS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO KILL SOME FORM OF MOUTH BACTERIA, INCLUDING BACTERIA ASSOCIATED WITH BAD BREATH AND GINGIVITIS.

SOME USERS REPORT WHITENED TEETH, SMOOTHER SKIN, EVEN SMOOTHER HAIR.

TAKE A LISTEN TO TWO DENTISTS' TAKE ON THE TREND. Return to index of stories...


GARGLE WITH OIL-SOTVO


Dr. Ali Shatergholi

Dentist

:00-:06

"As far as dental goes its going to decrease plaque in your mouth which

decreases gingivitis and hundreds of other problems."

Dr.Bill Campbell

Dentist

:06-:16

"You're focusing on your teeth and your gums for 20 minutes at a time

so is it really the benefits on the oil or is it the benefits of

focusing on brushing an oral health care."

SO WHAT ABOUT THE CLAIMS THAT OIL PULLING CAN HELP PREVENT HEART DISEASE OR CANCER?

WHILE THERE IS A LINK BETWEEN ORAL HEALTH AND CHRONIC ILLNESS. THOSE SPECIFIC CLAIMS HAVE YET TO BE PROVEN. Return to index of stories...


GARGLE WITH OIL-BUB


NOW-- IF YOU ARE BRAVE ENOUGH TAKE ON THE OIL PULLING CHALLENGE-- DON'T SPIT THE OIL DOWN THE DRAIN-- IT WILL CLOG UP YOUR PIPES.
