Through out time, one or the first things noticed about someone is their smile (teeth), and their locks (hair), explains Dr. Marks. Generally, if you lack either, you may not get a second glance. Yes, this is very superficial, but true. Both are also needed to function. Teeth are necessary to eat our sustenance, and hair is needed to keep our bodies warm (the head looses more body heat than anywhere else in our bodies). Dr. Marks points out that there is a further, most important similarity.................................. NEXT -->
...............Neither teeth or hair can heal themselves! The rest of our bodies can heal themselves. A broken bone can heal itself. A cut on our skin, forms a scab, while the skin regenerates itself. Our hair grows from the follicle-roots. However, when we cut our hair, it can not regenerate itself from where it was cut, since the cells of the hair shaft are biologically dead.
Tooth enamel is formed by ameloblasts. As the teeth erupt into our mouths, the ameloblasts are lost, therefore enamel can never be reformed. So, if a tooth is broken, or if a cavity eats away the enamel, there is no natural way for it to regenerate itself. This is why God created Dentists and barbers!
