Your Mouth, Your Health - 2nd edition

Tooth decay could be a precursor to many health problems – notably obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Dental decay is the first to develop, and it predicts these and many other illnesses. That is because periodontitis, excess weight, hypertension, and other ailments such as hemorrhoids and deep venous thrombosis, often stem from the same cause: poor dietary choices. All dentists see the same patients again and again, suffering from plaque, cavities, infection – all of which are needless, preventable, and reversible. In this course, Dr. Somborac makes the connection between overall health and dental health. He describes how to prevent tooth decay and health decline, through easy-to-apply guidance you can use to help save patients` teeth and their lives.

Sugar, Salt, & Fat - 2nd edition

$35.00

This home-study course outlines the various factors that make foods palatable. It provides evidence that the "hyperpalatability" of our current food supply is undermining our normal satiety signals, motivating the drive to eat even when there is no physiologic need for food. This course presents evidence that repeated exposure to high quantities of palatable foods (i.e., those high in sugar, fat and salt) can alter the brain in ways similar to drugs of abuse, essentially "rewiring" the brain to promote compulsive eating and loss of control over food.
