Tossing flossing?
The burning question in the news last week was this: should you bother flossing? The answer for decades has been “of course.” And it’s likely you’ve heard something similar from your dentist. I know I have. But, while the importance of flossing may have been widely accepted, the evidence supporting it turns out to be surprisingly thin. At least that’s the conclusion of health experts who developed the recently released Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015-2020.

To floss or not to floss: That is suddenly the question
For decades, the federal government and dentists have recommended flossing daily to prevent cavities and gum disease. Now the evidence for flossing appears to be hanging by a string. The Associated Press announced last week that its investigation of 25 studies on flossing found the data supporting its benefits to be “weak, very unreliable,” while also noting that the federal government’s new dietary guidelines have quietly removed any mention of flossing. If you’re smiling about the news — a recent study found that nearly one-third of American adults never floss — hold on. Should you still floss? Yes, say exp...
