Milk makes for healthy teeth

It's not just your bones that benefit from milk; your teeth get stronger and healthier when you drink, too, because it contains calcium. Calcium helps protect your teeth against gum (periodontal) disease and keeps your jaw bone strong and healthy.

Since women are more likely to get gum disease if they don't absorb enough calcium from their daily diet, it's especially important for everyone to eat and drink plenty of calcium–rich foods.

Drinking 1% low–fat or nonfat (skim) milk will help you gain the most nutrients without the extra artery–clogging fat of 2% or whole milk.

Worth a read, by @irfan_husain and a plea to the young leadership in PPP @BBhuttoZardari 
Zardari is not alone in his drive to acquire property.

Its sad that some parties are only focused on criticising PTI at every twist - maybe to distract & shift blame - this is sadly not the time to do politics, they should instead be focusing on preventing the terror that has gripped Karachi and Pakistan for so many years, many years under their own watch, if they may have forgotten

Nailing their blatant lies - "MPA Khurrum Sher Zaman, MPA Samar Ali Khan, Ali Zaidi & Firdous Naqvi along with the PTI Karachi leadership attended the funeral of the victims of the Safoora Goth tragedy early this morning"

The ‪#‎Axact‬ Controversy - Whodunnit? http://teeth.pk/1PWsFgH

My detailed analysis - but the summary is - Axact needed to be taken out of the BOL scenario before its launch

I think this controversy, happened to come out in NYT now, it allowed the investor of BOL to use this opportunity to cut away Axact, which would have been a liability upon BOL, once the dust settles BOL makes a grand entrance almost as a clean slate, provided it can distance themselves from the likes of Shoaib Shaikh and the Axact tarnished image - then its off to the media rating races for many years to come

Initiating a discussion on LinkedIn about the Privacy issue of this leaked conversation - this is not a political discussion, (political talk here http://teeth.pk/1I5HlqA) - just the technicality of, if this can be categorized as a private conversation

What protections can we as Pakistanis have to prevent other citizens discussions don't get leaked - if someone does have a recording (which many do) they should not be made public and if they do - there must be safe guards for citizens - and not be left fending away a smear campaign 

#Privacy   #pakistan   #Politics  
As many may have heard about the conversation between Imran Khan & Dr Arif Alvi, truly in my opinion there is nothing incriminating in the conversation so the contents are in the political discussion domain which I do not want to open up on Linkedin - the political discourse can be continued on my blog here on Teeth Maestro blog - Imran Khan & Dr Arif Alvi's "doctored" conversation leakedWhat I think needs to be discussed on Linkedin is more alon...

A must watch show when in Phuket. Buffet dinner is decent, but get there by 7:30 not the suggested 6 PM you would end up twirling your thumbs waiting. Select good seats - gold seats not worth the extra cash Cameras not allowed but the camera deposit return has a lazy 10 min extra line not exciting. Try to pack it in and don't open it anywhere. All said it's a must watch show

An over rated hotel - it's nice but overall I'd rate it as average resort - for the price rooms are average, they lack the finesse of a high standard resort - even the Movenpick ice cream served in their hotel is 3x the cost and stale - that fact alone was a shocker
