Most conventional nutritional health 'wisdom' is really false. Margarine is not better than butter. In fact margarine should never be eaten. We really aren't smarter than God. Our bodies need good saturated fat.

Cleaner mouths lead to healthier hearts
from William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.:
when it comes to heart health, what you eat is about 50 times more important than how often you brush.
But since we're talking teeth, let me answer a question I get all the time: "Doc, how can I keep my mouth clean when you keep telling me to avoid the dentist?"
Easy -- just forget everything you've been told about dental care. Take anything in your house with fluoride in it -- toothpaste, mouthwash, all of it -- and toss it in the trash. Don't save it, don't set it aside and don't put it in the guest bathroom (unless you hate your guests).
All you need is a little baking soda and some plain old 3 percent hydrogen peroxide. Combine a little of each to make a paste, then gently rub it into your teeth and gums after meals. Don't even bother with a toothbrush. Then, rinse with some of that peroxide (just don't swallow it).
Skip anything with sugar, and you may never need to see a dentist again.
And believe me, the less time you spend with those radiation-happy, fluoride-pushing, mercury-peddling bone bruisers, the better.
