The Year-in-Review Meme, Know Thy Health Edition, 2009
Posted on Monday, December 7th, 2009
Inspired by the year-in-review meme post on Adventures in Ethics and Science, here’s our contribution: the first sentence from the first post of each month over the past year.
Note: In some cases – where videos or “Stat!” posts ran on the first of the month – the actual first sentence didn’t occur until the second post of the month.
- January: “I lucked out and got my mom’s beautiful straight teeth.”
- February: The state of children’s teeth is, to put it mildly, not so good.
- March: No doubt, you know the home remedy starve a fever, feed a cold.
- April: “Bacteria from a mother’s mouth can be transmitted through the blood and amniotic fluid in the womb to her unborn child.”
- May: “Silver” amalgam fillings consistently release mercury vapor, and the amount released varies depending on what sorts of stresses the teeth are under.
- June: How did screen legend Joan Crawford’s mouth ever go from looking like this…to this?
- July: We live in a toxic world.
- August: We get media releases.
- September: We take the concept of informed consent very seriously in our practice.
- October: “Deadly brain abscesses should be added to the list of risks of having a tongue piercing, say doctors.”
- November: A research team at a prestigious university hospital was conducting an experiment: how does a bullfrog react to a handclap?
- December: Are you living your meaningful life, or is it buried under hundreds of different disappointments and lost dreams?
And indeed that gives a pretty good summary of what this blog is all about: overwhelmingly about dental concerns, yet also exploring topics in general health and wellness – for these things have an impact on dental and oral health…and vice versa.
Or, as our tagline above puts it, “Everything’s connected.”
