Annals of international marketing: the future of Italian cuisine? - Food Politics by Marion Nestle

A most truthful name for a store in Italy that sells American ultraprocessed snacks. Of course, if it's junk, should it even be called "food"? 😂

Annals of international marketing: the future of Italian cuisine? - Food Politics by Marion Nestle I am indebted to Bill Tonelli who took this photo on October 10 in Viterbo, Italy, about an hour outside of Rome. The shop, he reports, sells American snacks—candy, chips, soda—with no pretense of worry about health or sustainability. He sent me to the store’s website: Benvenuti nel regno degl...

Breastfeeding, even for a few days, linked to lower blood pressure in early childhood Babies who were breastfed, even for a few days, had lower blood pressure at 3 years of age than children who had never been breastfed. Toddlers who had been breastfed had lower blood pressure regardless of their body mass index or their mothers' social, health or lifestyle factors.

In a word, no.

Toxic Tuesday – “Everything looks normal.” How many times have you heard this from a dentist when you knew in your gut it wasn’t true?

Last week I had the pleasure of receiving a thoughtful message from a woman in Canada. She shared with me that my posts helped her discover some dental issues which are contributing to her systemic health struggles. I will share her message tomorrow.

One of the things she shared with me was the Radiology Report which was performed after having had a 3D Cone-Beam CT scan. I was struck by how deceivingly it was written. As an example, the image which you see on today’s post is tooth #18 (lower left 2nd permanent molar, referred to as “tooth #37” in Canada). The radiologist wrote “Tooth #37 appears normal radiographically”. Now, consider the misleading nature of this statement:

• The top of the tooth has been almost completely cut away and filled
• The mid-body of the tooth has been drilled and filled
• The canals which used to house vital blood supply, lymphatic drainage and nerves have been drilled and filled
• The entirety of the porous root system is filled with microbes
• There is foreign “root canal sealer” in the bone as a consequence of the root canal

None of these things are consistent with a “normal tooth”! A normal tooth has a full covering of enamel and is connected to vital blood, nerve and lymph supply. When a “specialist” tells you that something looks normal, most people believe them. I believe that this loose utilization of the word “normal” is risky, misleading and potentially dangerous. A dead tooth is not normal!
