No matter what your faith is, or even if you have no faith, there are many reasons to travel to, or even relocate to the Holy Land. Seeing history, or the beauty of the geography, or the origins of the major religions. But can one reason be to not to have to worry about brushing or flossing your teeth anymore, asks Dr. Marks?
It turns out that a special virus has been found, (believe it or not), in the sewage found in Jerusalem, claims Dr. Marks. This research was conducted at the Jerusalem Hebrew University, by the Dental Medicine faculty. Tiny viruses named bacterio-phages, were used to infect the bacteria that were found to infect humans. A particular virus found in the sewerage effluents of a Jerusalem treatment facility, was able to stop infections that resulted from dental procedures and causing the need for root canal treatments. These phages targeted Enterococcus faecalis biofilms. These phages were identified and named EFDG-1, and were found to be effective in the infecting of a strain of Enterococcus faecalis biofilms called V-583. This bacteria was resistant to the strongest applicable antibiotic, Vancomycin.
So perhaps a little timeless faith, along with modern medical discoveries, can help you -in addition to brushing and flossing and visiting your dentist!
