I don't know about you, but I'd almost rather go to a hanging than floss my teeth. I really hate jabbing that length of stringy floss between my choppers and gums.
I do it at least once a day, because I know it's a good thing to do, but I sure don't like it.
Well, here's a good reason to stay motivated with daily flossing. According to Michael Roizen, M.D., physician and author of Real Age: Are You as Young as You Can Be?, folks with periodontal disease (which often strikes when one doesn't clean between the teeth and gums) have an increased risk of developing fatty plaque in their blood vessels.
And of course squinched up blood vessels decrease the flow of blood to the ole brain, which can then impair memory.
Floss those teeth every day and perhaps your memory will improve to the point where you'll recall your first date. God forbid if it was anything like my first date. But that's another story.
