It can add years to your life. Amazing, right? I remember the first time someone shared this fact with me. It was at a business lunch, and we were sitting at a table where no one knew each other. The random piece of information served as a great icebreaker and sparked some lively and animated conversation. I was amazed by the little tidbit, and later learned that by removing excess food from your gumline, you are preventing germs and unwanted antibodies from entering your bloodstream. Multiple studies have shown a link between flossing and lower rates of diabetes and heart disease. It also makes your time with the dental hygienist a lot less painful.
Consider what interesting knowledge you can share that might create an opportunity to connect with people around you and help them learn something important.
