A few seconds doing this simple task every day can make you live longer. I’m Laurie Edwards-Tate with “LifeCycles.”

It’s flossing! A 2008 New York University study showed that daily flossing reduced the amount of bacteria in your mouth. Doctors think this bacteria enters your bloodstream and triggers inflammation in your arteries – a major risk factor for heart disease. It’s also thought to cause artery thickening.

So smile, say “AH,” get busy flossing and live longer! The bonus: a beautiful, healthy smile which will also make you LOOK younger!
