Do you use dental floss? After reading this article, you might NEVER use it again!

0

Dental floss was frequently recommended in the last 10 years by specialists. After each meal, we are used to brush our teeth, then use dental floss. But, it seems that the result is other than that promoted, because the efficiency of dental floss use has not been scientifically proven.
dental-floss
The journalists of The Associated Press analyzed 25 scientific studies from the last decade which were comparing the simple brushing and the brushing followed by dental floss use. However, they have not found concrete proofs regarding the efficiency of dental floss use.

In a study from 2015 it is remarked the “lack of effectiveness” of this practice, while another study, from the same year, concludes that “the most studies fail to demonstrate that dental floss is generally effective in removing plaque”.

As well, the AP journalists analyzed the studies quoted by the promoters of dental floss – the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Periodontology – that claim that using dental floss after teeth brushing prevents the installation of plaque, tartar, reduces the appearance of gingivitis and tooth decay. According to the AP, these studies were realized or for a short time (two weeks), or on a small number of people (25 subjects).

Wayne Aldredge, the President of the American Academy of Periodontology, recognized the insufficient scientific proofs  and the short period of the experiment when numerous studies had been produced. However, the effectiveness of dental floss could be higher for people who present a risk of developing gum disease, smokers and diabetics, he says.

Cooking mistakes which you probably do without realizing this

Although you could think that you are guru in cooking and you feel like fish in the water in kitchen, it could be surprising for you to find out that you do some common mistakes while cooking. Here are some of them and here is how to fix them:

overcrowding-the-pan1. Overcrowding the pan
Be sure you leave enough space so that the food is not touching. The additional room ensures that the heat from the pan evenly distributes and the food is cooked from all sides.

not-putting-salt-in-water
2. Not putting salt in water
Salt flavors your dish, including the pasta. Without salt, pasta would be just like some bland noodles. But, it’s your choice how much salt you want in your dish.

measuring-dry-ingredients-in-a-measuring-cup-for-liquids
3. Measuring dry ingredients in a measuring cup for liquids
While baking, you need to measure the ingredients correctly for a “tasty” result. For dry ingredients better use a kitchen scale.

putting-cold-meat-in-a-hot-pan4. Putting cold meat in a hot pan
It is recommended to let the meat come up to room temperature before cooking it. Thus it will cook more evenly, not being too overdone outside and raw inside.

putting-hot-food-in-cold-fridge
5. Putting hot food in cold fridge
Leave enough time for your food to cool down before depositing it in fridge or freezer. If you need to put it quicker in fridge, then use an ice bath.

For sure you would like to taste this new beverage!

Six innovative young men add color to the beverage obtained through the alcoholic fermentation of grape juice, conceiving a new type of drink: Gïk – the blue wine.

gi%cc%88k-the-blue-wine-new-beverageThe winemakers chose red and white grape clusters from the region of Basque Country, Spain, and combined it with an indigo color additive and anthocyan (pigment extracted from the juice of plants that offers red, violet or blue color to fruits), for creating a revolutionary wine with a surprising nuance of sapphire.

The company claims that the location and the variety of grapes are not important. What really matters are the people from behind the blue product, including here the cultivators, as well as the wine makers.
gik-blue-wineThe innovative entrepreneurs are all about 20 years old and have no qualification in wine trade, although they had a two-year-collaboration with the University from the Basque region to make the recipe of blue wine perfect.

The young men tell that they chose the color of the wine to be blue due to its symbolism, especially for the fact that this nuance “represents movement, innovation and infinity. It is also a color frequently associated with changing”.

The people who have already tasted this drink, tell that it is delicious. It is supposed that it is sweeter than red wine or the white one, even if it does not contain sugar. Each bottle has 11.5% alcohol and costs about USD 11, although for the moment the product is not available in the United States.

However, Spain, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Germany can order online the wine.

Admire the most beautiful beach of the year from Europe!

0

This year, the most beautiful beach from Europe was voted Stiniva from Croatia, a place with crystal clean waters and white sand, as well as a scene that takes your breath away. Once reaching this beach, you will easily understand why it won its title, being offered by the tourism organization European Best Destinations.
stiniva-croatiaIt is not so simple to reach this piece of paradise. First of all, the beach is situated on the island of Vis, more precisely on its southern part. Secondly, it is only accessible by hiking on a steep and narrow path, or by taking a taxi boat from the nearby Rukavac cove.

Another curious fact about this beach is that it is secluded with a sea entrance which is only 16 feet wide, creating a really breathtaking view!
stiniva-beach-from-croatiaBesides the beach, you could find another places worth to see like the towns of Vis and Komiza, or the vineyards from the North of Plisko Polje. It is easy to explore the island by a scooter.
