20 Foods to Make You Look Ageless There are additional benefits to eating foods that prevent cancer. It has been proven that eating these same foods can make you look younger. Phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables play a significant role in slowing the aging process. One way to judge the presence of phytochemicals is to look for darkly colored or strong flavored fruits and vegetables. There are additional benefits to eating foods that prevent cancer.

40 Stress Can Make You Overweight! When exposed to stress, the brain sends out a hormone that causes certain cells to retain more fat. The brain cannot distinguish between survival stress and chronic daily stress. Therefore, when you are stressed, your body continually stores more fat.

45 Diabetic Warning Signs 17 million Americans have diabetes - one in three does not know it. 95% of them have periodontal disease! Bad breath, bleeding gums and a dry mouth are often indicators of diabetes. Receding gums have been found to occur more frequently in diabetic patients because plaque responds differently in diabetics. 17 million Americans have diabetes - one in three does not know it. 95% of them have periodontal disease!

46 Periodontal Disease An estimated 80 percent of American adults currently have some form of periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple inflammation to serious painful disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.

48 Periodontitis When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontitis. The result is your gums pull away from the teeth and form "pockets" that are infected. Your body's enzymes while trying to fight the infection actually start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold our teeth in place.
