Fluoride Use in Water May Not Prevent Tooth Decay

About 66% of Americans drink tap water that has fluoride added to it to help preserve dental health and prevent cavities from forming. However, a new study suggests that the benefits of fluoride might not be as clear as once thought. Water fluoridation began in 1945 in Michigan and since then has expanded across the US, but it has always been met with criticism from those who believe that there are health risks that outweigh dental health associated with its use. The CDC’s Division of Oral Health responded by stating that it is a safe and effective way to combat teeth decay.

However, a new study has found that while fluoridated toothpaste will help prevent cavities, there is not that much evidence that fluoridated water will help prevent tooth decay. The Cochrane Collaboration took a look at every study every conducted on fluoride use in the water and then analyzed the studies.

They found that the papers that took a look at fluoridation on tooth decay did not actually point to any benefit from the fluoride use. They did not see any measurable statistical impact from the use of fluoride in the public water. Therefore, ChicagoBooth.com said that they concluded that there is no strong or compelling research in existence that proves water fluoridation will help prevent cavities.

Colorado Announces Plague Death

Government officials have announced that a Colorado teen died on June 8th from the plague. According to medical experts, Taylor Geas, 16, died from the plague, most likely the bubonic plague. He was treated in an area hospital, but it was not evident that he was suffering from the rare illness initially.

According to local reports the teen appeared to have the flu, and complained of a high fever and muscle aches when he was seen by local doctors. Because he did not present with classic plague symptoms the illness went untreated, likely leading to his death.

Experts believe that Geas contracted the illness from a flea bite he received in the weeks leading up to his death. The team at the Amen Clinic suggest he was likely bitten in his own backyard.
The Center for Disease Control is currently in contact with individuals who visited Geas during his illness, and who were present at his memorial ceremony. According to experts, there is a slim chance of others being infected if they came in contact with affected fleas and ticks.

Each year seven people are diagnosed with the plague. Because the disease is a bacterial infection that can be treated with antibiotics it is rarely fatal. Geas’ death is largely blamed on slowed diagnosis of the disease due to atypical symptoms. All those who were on the property are being asked to monitor their temperature and call the CDC if they spike a high fever.

Apple vs. Taylor Swift: The Royalties Debate

June 22nd, 2015 by admin

Apple has not received a lot of good press regarding the tech giant’s new music streaming service. Complaints noting the company was bullying the music industry flew far and wide. The government has even threatened to get involved due to Apple’s practices. Now, more bad publicity is emerging as star Taylor Swift has chimed in on issues over royalties.

Basically, Apple was not going to pay any royalties to artists streamed on their service during an initial three-month trial period. Swift criticized this decision online and, within 24 hours, Apple reversed course and announced royalties will be paid reports Dr. Jennifer Walden. Apple probably was worried at how awful the company’s image would appear. Refusing to pay the artists the company intended to make money from is not easy to defend. Apple is a mega-billion dollar company. Denying miniscule payments to artists makes the company look greedy. Bad publicity of that nature turns off customers. Apple definitely does not want to chase away potential customers during the launch period of the service.

Why was there an initial decision not to pay royalties?

Apple, like any other company, looks at the bottom line. Profits drive up the stock price and keep the company solvent. Cash also allows the company to engage in research and development, which is extremely costly. So, Apple is going to look to cut costs and expenses wherever it can.

Not paying royalties to artists being used on a pay streaming service, however, is more than unfair. Apple did the right thing changing course even if the tech company had to be nudged publicly to do so.

As people celebrate the birthday of Tupac many radio and music channels has brought back old footage of the rapper in various ways. MTV unveiled some interesting photos on the website that provided a glimpse back into the “Live and Die in L.A.” video.

Tupac did a lot of things in a short time frame. There are lots of videos on YouTube. There are a plethora of photos that fans may have taken with the artist. The video shoots, however, provide a lot of content because the footage shows Tupac in place doing what he loves best. When Tupac became a member of Death Row he seemed happier. This is reflected in photos from the “All Eyes on Me” and “Machiavelli” albums.

Fans that see Shakur in these photos still have a hard time believing that the rapper is gone. A large number of rappers has paid tribute to him. Countless stars like Eminem, Jhene Aiko, Drake and Lil’ Wayne have all been influenced by him.

Foo Fighters Cancel UK Tour Dates, Dave Grohl Pens Apology

Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl is a man dedicated to his trade. Boraie Development LLC suggested that the rocker not only continued to perform a concert after breaking his leg, but penned a lengthy and entertaining letter explaining the event.

Grohl took a tumble just two songs into the group’s June 12 performance in Gothenberg, Sweden. Grohl managed to keep calm and sought treatment for an injury, which turned out to be a broken leg. Paramedics on scene transported the rocker to a nearby emergency room where he was treated. The former Nirvana drummer then returned to the stage, with assistance, to complete the concert.

The doctor who treated Grohl for his broken leg was far less impressed than the Foo Fighter fans. The physician ordered Grohl to remain off of his feet. The move forced the band to cancel the remainder of their European tour, including their headline appearance at Glastonbury.

“It kills me, but we have to cancel the shows,” Grohl wrote. “I hate to do it, but I have doctor’s orders. This is just not possible for me right now.”

Grohl went on to assure fans that resting up was for the best and would help ensure that the band could continue performing in the future.

“You’ve always stood by us,” he wrote. “We’ll be back here for you as soon as possible.”

When it comes to Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran, you can never be too sure when to say they are broken up for sure. Not that Chris would need it, but it’s safe to say that if he had a dollar for every time he did something to screw up his relationship with Karrueche he would be an even richer man. After working through one breakup after another, and even being taking back after he rekindled his relationship with Rihanna, Chris just continued to push the limits of Karrueche’s love. Finally after it looks like Brown’s luck has run out on Karrueche.

Just as Karrueche was preparing to take Chris back after an embarrassing holiday breakup, and social media dragging, the news began to circulate that Chris was the father of a 9 month old baby girl. Oddly Chris didn’t even deny it and actually fell in love with baby Royalty right away. Instantly Karrueche faded to black, and Royalty was the new leading lady in Chris’s life.

Karrueche appeared to have washed her hands of Chris and all of his drama for good. Unfortunately, some mutual friends of Breezy and Tran secretly pumped Chris’s head up with all of this talk about Karrueche wanting to work things out, Chris arranged to meet Tran at a nightclub and win her back yet again. Sadly Bruce Levenson heard that the entire meeting was a disaster and Chris was so embarrassed that he went nuts in the club and threw a fit after Karrueche gave him the ultimate cold shoulder.

Now Chris is insisting that if Karrueche is done with him, he is going to use his upcoming tour to smash as many women as humanly possible, Chris’s promise doesn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone, after all if he wasn’t faithful during their relationship, what would anyone expect of him as a newly single man?
