If you’re known to fall asleep while watching your favorite TV show or just simply having the background noise, you may want to reconsider. Your TV emanates an artificial light that has been linked to two types of cancer.
Although you may be sleeping, the light at night is still impacting your body, even without you knowing it. Some people argue that they need the background noise to fall asleep, so if you need the TV on to fall asleep, you could try to set a timer to limit your risk and exposure.
1. Skipping out on flossing is terrible for your oral hygiene.
An effective oral routine includes brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash. If you’re like the majority of people, you may not be doing all three. Perhaps you’re doing some combination of the three, but not all. To stay healthy, it’s essential you brush, floss, and use mouthwash.
Failing to floss can increase the risk of gum disease. Once you have gum disease, you are at an increased risk of developing more serious health issues such as cancer. Coming up with a routine that you can stick with can help ensure you don’t miss this critical step. Don’t wait; start flossing tonight.
