Halloween is the Perfect Time to Take Measures for Lasting Fresh Breath and Oral Health
Halloween kicks off a series of holidays celebrated with delicious treats, from yummy chocolate candies to gut-busting dinners to seasonal alcoholic beverages.
While most parents will make sure their kids brush after eating their treats, National Dental Hygiene Month in October encourages a fuller approach to oral health.
"Teeth and gums are obviously key components of oral health care, but they're just part of the whole environment inside one's mouth," says Dr. Bob Kross, a biochemist who's been researching and developing oral health-care products since the 1980s. His patented Breath Appeal oral rinse, (www.breathappeal.com), destroys both the putrefying anaerobic bacteria that degrade food particles and body cells to form sulfurous bad breath malodorants as well as many of the bacteria associated with gum disease.

Two 70-year-old Living Kidney Donors Will Walk the Five-Mile Route
Los Angeles, CA (September 29, 2014) – Twelve generous yet otherwise ordinary people will take their places walking alongside the Donate Life Float in the 2015 Rose Parade® on New Year's Day. What makes these individuals so special is their willingness to save lives by donating a kidney – some of them altruistically – so that others can live.
"Eighty percent of people on the national transplant waiting list need kidneys, and it is medically impossible to meet this need with kidneys from the very rare opportunity of deceased donation," said Tom Mone, chairman of the Donate Life Float committee and CEO of OneLegacy, the nonprofit organ, eye and tissue recovery organization serving the greater Los Angeles area. "These 12 living donors have saved the lives of their loved ones, friends, and sometimes even strangers who would otherwise wait for years struggling on dialysis.

Lopez, Remini and their children were rear-ended Saturday evening on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu by a pickup truck. The pickup driver initially stopped but then returned to his truck and drove off.
