There are those that attend who have eventually plucked up courage to admit they are experiencing significant problems.
Now less people are in touch with their bodies they lose that instinct and eat out of habit rather than real need . Plates are piled high and many feel they have to finish every morsel whether they need to or not. We often don’t give ourselves enough time to eat and think carefully what we are eating and whether the plate is showing a balanced diet and whether our body actually needs it. There is an argument for saying grace at the beginning of a meal,as I remember in school, to allow the body to prepare itself for eating, activating the salivary glands and reflecting on what was to be eaten and starting the pace leisurely rather than leaping forward like an Olympic runner aspiring to win the race. Saliva not only lubricates the food but also contains enzymes that start chemically digesting your meal and special chemicals that help bacteria causing infections. Teeth break down large chunks into smaller bites. This gives a greater surface area for the body’s chemicals to work on. Recently articles have appeared in the press talking about a study of brain samples from deceased dementia patients and how unusually high levels of Porphyromonas gingivalis, a type of bacteria which causes gum disease were found.
Although the bacteria live in the mouth, they can enter the bloodstream during eating, chewing, tooth brushing or dental surgery, and potentially reach the brain, experts explained.
Inflammation caused by gum disease-related bacteria has already been linked to various health problems including diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Researchers say they have uncovered how bacteria may set off a chain reaction leading to bowel cancer.
Fusobacteria, commonly found in the mouth, cause overactive immune responses and turn on cancer growth genes, two US studies reveal.
Dental care has deteriorated due to dental costs to patients and less care taken by individuals regarding dental hygiene and poor diet.

alcohol, drugs or simply placing a cigarette between the lips.
Fizzy drinks, cakes, biscuits, crisps and desserts are frequently eaten despite the fact that they may increase the risk of bowel cancer, according to a new study.
The taste buds on the tongue allows use to experience the sensation of taste.
A bad taste in the mouth could be linked to a number of issues, including; constipation, loosely fitted crowns and gingivitis (inflammation of the gum tissue). A sour taste may be linked to acid reflux, where regurgitated stomach acid enters the mouth. Metallic tastes in the mouth may occur in women at the start of pregnancy, individual taking antibiotics, or those with a zinc or vitamin B12 deficiency.
The tongue is important manipulating food in mastication and in phonetic articulation of speech.Lips are a visible body part at the mouth of humans. They are soft, movable, and serve as the opening for food intake and in the articulation of sound and speech.
Trying to open a child’s mouth is extremely difficult,like a vice, to keep things out and to keep things in. It is these muscles that allow us to suck fluids with a straw.
Lips are a tactile sensory organ. I always remember my mother checking if the washing was dry by putting the crisp shirts to her lips and seeing if eggs had not gone off by putting each en to her lips. Try it – one end should be warmer than the other.
They are the sensory gates and we have a choice what we allow to enter.
But we must not deny the fact they are tactile sensory organ giving pleasure in kissing! What better way of reminding us to love our gut…..
