  • Can you fight flab with a toothbrush?

    1 check article below out, scroll.

    Miswak ( for cleaning teeth) is a little twig like object that comes from special trees, and after a little processing is used to brush teeth. Its smaller then your typical toothbrush of the modernday. IN areas where they dont have manufacturing plants, or the materials to build toothbrushse they still use miswaks as a method of oral hygiene.

    Oral hygiene is important for social ettiqutte, bodily health, and all types of other things. especially for a person who eats regularly.
    Did you know that the mouth has mor bacteria then your asshole? FACT.

    The Miswak leavea good arouma in the mouth, and the teeth shiney and clean. It has a specific anti bacterial action, which toothpaste cannot match.

    The Miswak is an important and simple tool for even the traveller, nowadays they are widely avaiable at muslim bookshops.

    The Prophet saw said in a narration that if it wasnt difficult upon his ummah he would have made miswak command upon his ummah ( words to the effect) !!

    TOKYO (Reuters) - If you want to keep trim, forget the diet books and gym membership -- you may be better off just brushing your teeth more often, according to a Japanese study.



    In a survey of the everyday habits of nearly 14,000 people whose average age was in their mid-40s, Dr. Takashi Wada of Jikei University in Tokyo found that those who managed to stay slim tended to brush their teeth after every meal.



    Overweight men sometimes went more than a day without brushing their teeth, according to the study, published in the Journal of the Japan Society for the Study of Obesity.



    Wada and his team compared the lifestyles of people whose body mass index (BMI) was over 25 -- the level doctors define as overweight -- with those of slimmer people. The survey covered eating and drinking habits, sleep, work and exercise.



    The results do not mean that brushing in itself constitutes a fat-burning exercise, the authors say.



    "It's a sign that these people are careful about their health -- they want to maintain the appearance of their teeth and prevent bad breath," the paper said. "We think actively encouraging the habit of toothbrushing would play a role in maintaining health and would help prevent obesity."

          A desciption of a human's weight is not the issue.

          Calling an entire people by a derogatory name is.
