Scientists Discover A Better Way To Clean Teeth (NAPS)--Here's something to smile about: Silicon Valley researchers have discovered a way for you to get close to a professional cleaning every time you brush. The Problem Dentists and researchers agree that cavities, bad breath, and gum disease are all caused by dental plaque. Despite Americans spending over S 1.8 billion on toothpaste annually, 90 percent of adults have gingivitis (gum inflammation and bleeding), and 64 million American adults have irreversible gum disease known as periodontitis. Furthermore, new research now links oral diseases to heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, Alzhei- mer's and more. Given these epidemic numbers, should you be looking for a different way to brush? Scientists have found • more effec- tive way to clean teeth. A Solution A Silicon Valley pharmaceutical company, Livionex, has-invented what many consider a better way to brush your teeth. Clinical studies show that brushing with LivFresh Dental Gel re- duces dental plaque 2.5 times better than a leading toothpaste. That's be- cause using the gel repels the bacteria and keeps plaque from sticking to the teeth for results that are close to a pro- fessional cleaning. One study showed that 100 percent of participants using the gel experienced a significant reduc- tion in plaque. Dental professionals like the fact that the gel does not contain triclosan, a toothpaste ingredient that has been linked to cancer. In fact, LivFresh is safe for all ages. It contains-all edible ingre- dients and does not contain abrasives and detergents found in conventional toothpastes. The gel has been developed with over ',0 years of research in close C011aboration with tol~ U.S. Universities, ahd ~rrenfly has over 100,000 users. For more information, visit www. or Amazon.

Sept. 5, 2017 Hinton News - 3 • • lnla ;ers orr ions CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A longtime Parkersburg public servant and the new advocate for West Virginia's 55 counties will help oversee and support community- based criminal justice programs, Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety Secretary Jeff Sandy has announced. Sandy has named Rick Modesitt as the at-large member of the Community Corrections Subcommittee, while Jonathan Adler joins the panel as the recently selected executive director of the W.Va. Association of Counties. '~rhis often-overlooked component of our criminal justice system is gaining two valuable voices with these additions," Sandy said. "I look forward to working with them and the subcommittee to help our communities reduce crime and recidivism." Modesitt is a businessman who served as a Wood County commissioner for a decade, and as a two-term House of Delegates member before that. He was previously with the Parkersburg Police Department for more than 20 years, retiring as its chief in 1997. He has remained active in community affairs, including through various nonprofit board, and his entertainment booking agency covers 15 East Coast states• Adler, a Weston native, traces his public service to the administration of Gov. Gaston Caperton, where he was an aide. He has remained involved in governmental affairs through positions with Columbia Gas Transmission, CONSOL Energy, W.Va. State University and the state chapter of the American Institute of Architects. He succeeded a retiring Patti Hamilton at the Association of Counties in July. The subcommittee performs a crucial role as West Virginia communities work together to deter crime and rehabilitate offenders. It helps them develop, establish and maintain community- based corrections programs that provide the judicial system with sentencing alternatives for those adult offenders who do not require incarceration. The 30 Day Report Centers that serve 51 counties are perhaps the most visible example of this approach• The ongoing opioid crisis, meanwhile, has served to underscore their importance. The subcommittee is part of the long-standing Governor's Committee on Crime, Delinquency and Correction, upon which both Modesitt and Adler will also serve. The Division of Justice and Community Services, which is part of Military Affairs and Public Safety, was created to staff the committee and its subcommittees. 2017 Hidden History Photo Contest Exhibit Opens at Tamarack Glen Jean, WV--Seethe exhibit, our neighborhoods, each seen from Heritage Area, and in the West of the winning entries to the 2017 different perspectives.
