Health Facts: Answers to Commonly-Asked Questions

We know you have questions about many common health conditions. We've seen the searches people make online. We've also seen the abundance of inaccurate, misleading, or outdated information that can show up during these searches. We'd like to clear the air on some of these medical myths

1. Is Bacterial Plaque Linked to Heart Disease?

This is a contentious question. For years, doctors told patients to keep up their dental health as a way of bolstering heart health, based on studies showing links between rates of gum disease and rates of heart disease. Newer studies suggest that these connections are more correlational than causal: it's likely that both periodontal diseases and heart disease have the same root causes, like obesity, smoking, and stress.

Oral health may not have an effect on heart health, but it's important for its own sake. The bacteria from untreated gum disease can cause painful inflammation and bleeding from the gums. Over time, it can break down the connective tissue between teeth and gums and cause tooth loss. Products like Crest Gum Detoxify Deep Clean Toothpaste can prevent and reverse this process by targeting and neutralizing harmful plaque bacteria along the gum line and throughout your mouth for clinically proven healthier gums.


2. Is a Migraine Just a Bad Headache?

Advil Migraine Liquid-Gel Caps. 200mg (20 Count)

Around 28 million Americans suffer from migraines, with a disproportionate 70% of sufferers being women. Migraines cost industries and healthcare $36 billion a year, and can prove debilitating to sufferers, but in 2017 only $22 million was spent on migraine research. Lack of focus has led to the perception that migraines are just severe headaches, rather than a neurological disease with a variety of symptoms, of which intense headaches are only one component.

Although migraines are more than just headaches, intense pain and other incapacitating physical ailments from migraines require immediate treatment. In some cases, this means an emergency room visit - many migraine patients go to the hospital for their symptoms. But there are products designed to combat the effects of migraines, like Advil Migraine. Proven to relieve not only migraine pain but also other common symptoms, such as nausea and sensitivity to light and sound, Advil Migraine is the only FDA-approved, over-the-counter migraine medicine in a liquid-filled capsule.


3. Should I Be Worried About Super Lice?

Licefreee! Lice Free Kit

As a general rule, we're worried about any parasites, insects, or arachnids with an adjective attached -- old monster movies taught us well. Despite the fearsome moniker, though, super lice aren't new, and they probably aren't going to take over the world. Certain lice being resistant to over-the-counter treatments isn't as a new a phenomenon as advertised, and the truth is that these lice are only resistant to certain pesticides found in some lice medications.

You don't need to use chemical pesticides to get rid of lice, though. Licefreee! Kit both helps you eliminate infestations and prevent them from reoccurring. Its gel is made with a non-toxic, homeopathic formula that kills lice and eggs without harmful chemicals. Its active ingredient is sodium chloride, which dehydrates both lice and eggs. Licefreee! products are safe to use even on children 6 months old and above.
