What’s Trending - Is Tooth Regrowth coming soon?

World's 1st 'tooth regrowth medicine' to be tested in Japan from Sept. 2024

Clinical trials of the world's first "tooth regrowth medicine" are set to commence in September at Kyoto University Hospital, researchers announced here on May 2.

Once the medicine's safety is confirmed, it will be given to patients congenitally lacking a full set of teeth to confirm its effectiveness. The researchers hope to commence sale of the medicine in 2030.

Congenital tooth deficiency is believed to affect about 1% of the population. The absence of six or more teeth, a condition known as oligodontia, is believed to be hereditary, and is said to affect about 0.1% of the population.

The subjects must be missing at least one back tooth so that there will be no problem if the medicine takes effect and a tooth begins to grow. No major side effects have been confirmed in animal studies to date.

Today’s Need to Know - Plastic found where?

Microplastics discovered in human penises for the first time - what?
(Possible links to ED and blood flow issues)

(CNN) Scientists have found microplastics in human penises for the first time, as concerns over the tiny particles’ proliferation and potential health effects mount. (women may also be experiencing this in their sexual organs)

Seven different kinds of microplastics were found in four out of five samples of penis tissue taken from five different men as part of a study published in IJIR: Your Sexual Medicine Journal on Wednesday.

Microplastics are polymer fragments that can range from less than 0.2 inch (5 millimeters) down to 1/25,000th of an inch (1 micrometer). Anything smaller is a nanoplastic that must be measured in billionths of a meter. They form when larger plastics break down, either by chemically degrading or physically wearing down into smaller pieces.

Seven different types of microplastics were detected, with polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polypropylene (PP) the most prevalent, according to the study.

What do I do about this? Detox and STOP using plastic water bottles and anything in plastic. Read more in the link below…

Health Hack of the Week - Glutamine

Glutamine: the Amino Acid for Gut Health & Muscle Growth

Have you heard about the incredible health benefits of L-glutamine? First used in powder form by people in the fitness industry (including bodybuilders) who were looking to preserve muscle tissue, L-glutamine (also simply called glutamine) is an amino acid that is a building block of protein and needed by your body in large amounts.

The most common original uses of glutamine powder were to meet the following goals: to lose weight fast, burn fat and help build muscle.

While that remains the case, science now shows that glutamine benefits are abundant. It also promotes digestive and brain health, boosts athletic performance — plus it’s helpful in treating intestinal issues and leaky gut.

More Health Hacks - Coffee for Longevity

How Much Coffee You Should Drink If You Want To Live Longer

Coffee is one of the most consumed beverages across the globe. It’s a treasured morning ritual or a post-dinner tradition. But there still seems to be this belief that coffee isn’t really healthy, and consuming (especially) a lot of it is ill-advised.

But research shows that couldn’t be further from the truth. Coffee drinkers are often healthier and live longer1 than non-coffee drinkers. And you’ll be surprised at just how many cups per day are ideal for optimal health benefits.

In one 2019 study, researchers pooled data from 21 studies (including over 10 million participants) and looked at coffee consumption and all-cause mortality.

While all-cause mortality measures the number of deaths from any cause in a population, it can be used to infer longevity—as low all-cause mortality rates typically indicate a higher life expectancy.

How much should you drink? see below…
