Massage ... What? New Study Suggests Rubbing This Body Part Increases Health

The #1 most neglected body part? Experts say it needs a little love too! In fact, if you rub it with this, you may even be healthier...


The thing you're not doing for good health? Rubbing your gums--preferably, with a bit of toothpaste.


A new Swedish study found that people who gave themselves daily gum massages using a bit of toothpaste (and clean fingers!) increased the fluoride absorption in their teeth/mouth by as much as 400 percent and reduced cavity formation. The key here, though, was leaving the toothpaste on your teeth (and not rinsing) after the gum-and-tooth rubdown.
