Looking for Some Health Benefits?


I happened to hear something interesting on the radio on the way to golf camp the other day.  

They said that kissing was good for your health!  

  • One thing they said was that kissing helps to fight bacteria, because it produces saliva which helps fight the bacteria in your mouth. (It even helps prevent tooth decay!)
  • They also mentioned that kissing is great for stress relief!  When I think about it, I rarely feel stressed while kissing!
  • It also burns calories!

So, when I got home, I looked it up and found an article which gave me more information about The Health Benefits of Kissing.  I found out a few more things:

  1. Kissing is good for your self esteem.
  2. If you kiss your partner goodbye in the morning, you'll live 5 years longer than those who don't.
  3. Kissing releases endorphins that are 200 times more powerful than morpheme.
  4. It also tones the muscles in your face, preventing aging!
Be sure to click the link and read more.  I realize this has absolutely nothing to do with reading, mathematics, teaching, learning, or even the brain, but I thought it was interesting enough to share!

And if you really, really try, you can sort of see a connection to the brain!

  1. Kissing cures bad breath? And tooth decay? That's a bit funny. Who would dare kiss somebody with tooth decay and bad breath at the same time? Maybe a dentist charlotte would, just because that's his job. Beats me.
