Good News! Government Says You Don't Have to Floss

The next time your dentist gets on you about not flossing. Let them know that you’re on to their little scam!

The Associated Press just looked at the research on the benefits of flossing, and they got the Department of Health and Human Services to admit, quote, “The effectiveness of flossing has never been researched, as required.”

Sure, there have been plenty of studies on flossing, but none of them have definitively found that it helps you get rid of plaque or prevents gum disease.

So why has the government been all up in our faces saying that we all floss every day for almost four decades?

A dentist from the National Institutes of Health summed it up.  Quote, “It’s low risk, low cost.  We know there’s a possibility that it works, so we feel comfortable telling people to go ahead and do it.”

True but did you know Floss is a $2 BILLION market around the world, and half of that comes from the United States.

Hmmmmmm this all sounds like a HUGE conspiracy to me!
