A lot of Ernest's answer is either unproven or flat nonsense (sorry Ernest). This fad is for some reason called 'oil pulling' -

- it does not CURE toothe decay. If you have tooth decay, it will still be there.

- its effects in preventing decay are as yet unkown. There has been no credible study on this

- it will not PREVENT heart disease. This is a dangerous flight of pure fancy. Its effects in reducing this risk are as yet unkown

- it has NOT been shown to whiten teeth in any proper study. The populare belief is due to folklore

- it has NOT been shown to improve acne. Once again this is folklore.

All that said, medical science acknowledges that coconut oil is rich in Vitamin E, and contains vitamins A, D and K. It also has some anti-bacterial and anti-fungal action. So this practice will not hurt you if you don't swallow the oil.

The jury is still out folks.

While it doesn\'t appear to have any effect on the teeth and mouth, it is unknown whether or not it is associated with heart disease and should be used sparingly.

Hi I have an itching problem on my face I started using moringa tables and zonke healin cream but now my face is swallen especial around my eys so must I go in using or should I leave it for awhile .

i will advice you to stop applying any chemical or cream on your face and examine it. A natural and very effective product that heals the skin especially your face is coconut oil. massage your face everyday with a little coconut oil. if u have a oily skin, don't worry about it because your skin will recognize the oil and so it won't take inany more oil. if you do not have oily skin then i advise you apply a very little amount.

Is Chewing Gum Bad for your Teeth?
Chewing Gum is a very popular habit. Some people use it as a way of eating less, some use it as a teeth cleaning method after meals and some just like it.
But the question often asked is whether chewing gum helps or harms your teeth.
Professionals and dieticans all weigh-in with their opinions about the effects of chewing gum.
Here are some of the arguments:
Some studies show that gum stimulates the production of saliva which naturally washes the teeth, neutralizing acid which is the cause of cavaties.
Most chewing gums contain a sweetner of some kind. These can cause damage to the teeth, especially if you chew them often.
Artificially sweeteened chewing gum definately has a less damaging effect on teeth.
If you chew gum that is sweetened with sugar, the negative effects are cancelled out if you keep the gum in your mouth for a longer period of time.
In conclusion, opinions are divided over the benefits and downsides of chewing gum. If you are a regular gum chewer, make sure you use sugar free products and check with your dentist about any potential damage.

Is it any side effect of this oil

Hello dear

There is no side effect of this hair oil infact, but if does not match your hair or scalp skin then it will have some harsh effect on your hair. First get and identify your hair type.
Well to check the oil that if it has any side effect on your head, first use it biweekly means twice a week for 14 days and stop using it. Then Check
Does your hair falling starts?
Do you feel itching on your scalp?
Do you see more dandruff on yur head.?

If all says NO, then use the oil care free.
