Painful cavity treatments may soon be a thing of the past
Going to the dentist to repair a cavity can be daunting. But, fear not, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. AMAC reports that researchers at King’s College London may have discovered a way to regrow that aching tooth.
The procedure, which would not be available until approved by the FDA, uses a drug already available on the market to treat symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. It helps damaged teeth produce extra dentin, a naturally occurring substance. The dentin fills the cavity without need to drill. The process has worked on experiments with mice and human trials may begin in the not too distant future.
There’s an asteroid out there in space with the moniker, 16 Psyche, that is made entirely of a combination of a metal that would reportedly be worth an astounding 10,000 quadrillion dollars, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. That’s $10,000 with an extra fifteen zeros and NASA plans on visiting the planetoid.
But, there are no plans “cash in” on the mission. The scientists at the space agency believe this extra-terrestrial treasure hunt will provide a trove of knowledge. They say it can help tell us how the solar system was formed. Besides, NASA says, it does not have the technology to mine the asteroid.
“Cat Cuddler Needed”
If you are a cat lover, you are going to love this job opportunity, says the Association of Mature American Citizens: a Dublin clinic calling itself Just Cats has posted an opening for a resident “cat cuddler” on its Web site. “The ideal candidate must have gentle hands capable of petting and stroking cats for long periods of time,” according to the ad. He or she must also have “cattitude,” the posting notes.
