Figures from NHS Digital have shown that within a 24-month period, up to the end of February, only 49.7% of adults received any dental treatment.

Within the same time period, only 59% – less than two-thirds – of children were seen by a dentist.

It wasn’t too long ago that there was a widely held consensus that eating meat was the only way to get enough protein into your body for building muscle and seeing true gains. That way of thinking is slowly changing, thanks in part to the growing number of bodybuilders and athletes who are crediting a vegan diet with helping them achieve peak performance.

Rob, a British bodybuilder and coach, has been vegan for four years. In a recent YouTube video, he shared the results of his DEXA scan, which accurately measures body fat and muscle, and broke down exactly what kind of impact a plant-based diet has had on his body.

Created by Tanya Zuckerbrot, M.S., R.D. in 2007 alongside the publication of her groundbreaking book of the same name, the F-Factor Diet is rooted in the idea that fiber (a bioavailable type of carbohydrate) is the ~magic key~ to losing weight without ever having to feel hungry.

Mercy Health doctor: Simple solutions to tackle ‘maskne’ | Lorain County

As the state of Ohio continues to tackle the novel coronavirus pandemic with mask wearing a part of the daily lives of Ohioans, some residents are dealing with the unexpected side effects of “maskne.”

A play on words with the skin irritation many people are experiencing due to wearing masks on a daily basis, Dr. Valerie Nemeth, of Mercy Health Vermilion Primary Care, says there are a number of steps people can take to prevent and mitigate the soreness to protect the health of their skin.
