Can a Cavity Be Healed With Nutrition?

Can a cavitiy be healed with nutrition?

I’ve probably had 15-20 cavities filled in my 32 years. Up until a few years ago, I always thought that cavities were just an annoying thing that happened, and there wasn’t a whole lot we could do to avoid getting at least a few. Lower your sugar intake, brush and floss well, and you’ll get less, right? When they do happen, simply get it drilled, and if you’re health conscious you can choose the white fillings over the silvery ones containing mercury. End of story. […]

10-Minute Tea Room Chicken Salad

By Erin Odom, Contributing Writer I’ve always loved chicken salad. To me, it’s the perfect feminine tea party food.

Written by Stacy Karen, Contributing Writer Over the years I’ve learned to start dinner early in the day in order to avoid the stress of cooking with hungry (or cranky) kids around at the 5 o’ clock hour. However, I don’t always manage to do so; on those nights it’s nice to prepare something quick and easy. These Romano Turkey burgers fit the bill perfectly.
