A rather odd new health habit seems to be growing in popularity.
But the thing is…it’s not exactly “new.”
Apparently, once upon an ancient time, people used to engage in oil pulling, or oil swishing. Why? To help improve oral health.
Today, people claim that oil swishing can do everything from improve their breath to treat gum disease to whiten their teeth.
Does It Work?
Experts are, for the most part, shrugging their shoulders.
The American Dental Association says that it can’t really comment on a practice that hasn’t really been researched.
